When your shoppers create an account with you, they will be asked if they want to receive your newsletter. If they opt in for the newsletter, MailChimp and/or Constant Contact will send them an email confirming their subscription. Once confirmed, your user will then be pulled through as a subscriber to your email campaigns!
You can also, download your User Accounts as a CSV file and upload them into your campaign service.
