MailChimp is an email marketing service. It has millions of users who use the site across multiple channels to promote their businesses. Because of the recent reforms, prices have increased, and customers are searching for options to terminate the service. 

MailChimp provides the best marketing campaigns. You can still permanently delete your account in your Account Settings if you no longer need to use MailChimp. However, after permanent deletion, MailChimp deletes your  audiences and all the records and details as well. If your data or info about your audience is needed in the near future, you must follow the below-mentioned tips.

Things to Remember 

Before you initiate the process, here are a few things to remember:

  • You can't revive after an account has been removed. This ensures that all account data is deleted from the MailChimp network, including audience and records, and can't be retrieved. 
  • MailChimp deletes all related data with your audiences, campaign files, and reports when you properly delete your account. Make sure to wrap your data before you delete your account to avoid any mishap. 
  • You have to pay an outstanding balance if you have a paid subscription plan and have recently switched to a higher billing level. Before you can close the credit, any remaining debt will have to be charged. 
  • You can instead buy Pay As You Go vouchers if you do not need to submit as many promotions for a bit. Alternatively, you can suspend your account twice a year to avoid monthly billing but keep accessing the account and sending renewals sooner.

What happens when you delete your MailChimp account?

  • Once your account is deleted, any remaining balance will be paid. 
  • Any audience-related info, campaign archives, and analyses will be deleted from MailChimp. 
  • If you are a monthly subscriber and your account just upgraded, you might be owing an unpaid balance. 
  • All records will be erased permanently.


This is how you can delete your MailChimp account. It is good if you do not need MailChimp anymore, you can delete it. Sadly, MailChimp deletes your audiences after deletion, which means you will lose your audience and can't communicate further. However, if you are facing an issue of high cost, take the last chance to communicate to the support team and then finalize your decision.
