Frequently asked questions about making the switch to Privy Email

Can’t I just use a third party app to integrate Mailchimp and Shopify?

You can, but our customers have told us there can be some issues. We’ve heard from merchants of duplicate issues, coupons being sent twice, things that can hurt your business.

Will I lose data from Mailchimp if I bring all my contacts to Privy Email?

You will not lose contact data. That’s why our compliance team manages all imports: to guarantee you don’t miss a thing. You can easily export all your Mailchimp contact data so when you are ready to import into Privy Email, you won’t lose anything important to your business.

Is Privy as easy to use as Mailchimp?

Hats off to Mailchimp, they did make their product really easy to use. But then again Privy does have 18,000 five star reviews in the Shopify App Store and the #1 reason for that is how easy it is to use (#2 is our amazing support team, by the way)

This seems too good to be true. Is the secret that I have to commit to an annual plan with Privy Email?

No. We don’t require an annual commitment. And plans start at just $13/month for 1,000 contacts. No sending limits.

Okay just to recap, why Shopify merchants tell us they are making the switch from Mailchimp to Privy Email...


You can’t directly integrate Shopify and Mailchimp without the use of a third party app.


Mailchimp is more expensive. For instance, if you have 5,000 contacts, Privy Email is just $30/month. Whereas Mailchimp's Essentials Plan would cost you $49.99/month and their Standard Plan would cost you $74.99/month for the same number of contacts.


You can’t have a cart abandonment sequence with Mailchimp and Shopify (only checkout abandonment) -- unless you use a third party app. This could mean you miss out on 70% of the carts that are abandoned on your Shopify store.
