Exporting lists from MailChimp will allow you to connect new subscribers to the chosen list. It will also allow you to renew current subscribers because they have a corresponding email address. You can export a record while reviewing a contact, or you can export many records from a listing page. 

Things to Remember

A few points to remember before you start exporting: 

  • One export per account is approved per 24-hour cycle. 
  • You will need to have at least one MailChimp list to start the export. 
  • List only with valid authentication and email addresses exported.

In this article, you will learn how to export the MailChimp list.

Export a List

Each exported list contains data linked to a particular audience. If you have several audiences on your profile and wish to access all of their data, you will have to transfer their data from each audience separately. There are essentially two ways to export a list:

  • Through email 
  • Directly through the use of a CSV file 

To export a list by email, follow these steps: 

  1. Click on the Audience icon.
