In this tutorial I want to share you how to integrate Divi Builder with your MailChimp account. Building an email list is one of the most important things that can grow your business. If you build a mailing list, you will have the opportunity to send them your news and offers directly to their email. In my opinion, one of the best platforms to collect emails and send marketing campaigns is MailChimp. For this, it´s necessary to create an API key to connect your MailChimp account with your Divi Builder.
In your Mailchimp account, click your profile and select “Profile”.
After logging in your MailChimp account, clicK “Extras” and select “API Keys“.
Click the Create A Key button to create a new API key. Once the API key is created, copy the API key on the API key column.
Go to your site and add an “Email Optin” module to your Divi layout and select your server Provider: MailChimp.
Enter your MailChimp Account Name and the API key you have created above. Click the Submit button.
Select a MailChimp list from the dropdown menu on the list section. Save changes.

Configuring Spam Protection Account Enabling it will offer you a much higher level of security. First of all, you will need to create a Google reCaptcha v3 profile for your website. To do it, go to https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create and fill in the details like you can see on this screenshot: When you fill it in, click on “Submit” button and you´ll get a reCaptcha Site Key and Secret Key. Go to Emil Optin Settings, choose the option “Spam Protection”. Click to ADD a new reCAPTCHA v3 Account and copy & paste your Google reCaptcha site key & secret key here. Then click Submit.
By default, the Email Optin module comes with 3 fields ( First Name, Last Name and Email ). You can remove the unnecessary fields checking Fields. And finally, customize it!
