Mailchimp and Shopify have been dating for a while now, but have decided to split up and go their separate ways. Thankfully no children were involved…so we think.
The break up came about because one was leading life on the wild side and the other felt it was putting them, their users and partners at risk. Affair enough, I say.
They told their family and friends on 22nd March, but will be needing everyone to be on board and ready to go by 12th May, 2019.
What happens now?
There are several options you can take.
Use third party integrations systems, such as ShopSync (which is free), Zapier or Automate.
