What’s Changing for MailChimp Free Tier?
MailChimp’s free tier is changing it’s plan for new users. On August 25, 2022, MailChimp announced changes to its MailChimp free plan tier that would go into effect on August 29th. Specifically, they would be limiting their contact list size limit to 500 with a monthly limit of 2,500 emails and a daily limit of 500 emails.
IMPORTANT UPDATE Feb 7 2023
MailChimp has made new changes to its free plan. See our newest blog post for more information.
Does this Affect Me?
If you’re already using MailChimp Free Tier, then these new plan limits do not impact you. However, if you choose to move back to a MailChimp free tier from a paid plan as an existing customer, then the new MailChimp free tier limits apply.
What should I Do?
If you already have an account or are a paying customer, then you don’t have to take any action. However, if you are planning on signing up and you wish to use MailChimp, then you should get an account for the August 29th deadline.
If you’re not too attached to MailChimp, or you’re concerned you will exceed their free tier, there may be another email provider that would suit your needs. For example, Postmark provides both bulk delivery and transactional mail services and other commercial solutions such as Sendinblue provide unlimited contacts with a sending limit of 300 emails a day.
Alternatively, you may want to consider moving to a more robust solution such as HubSpot, which is purpose-built from the ground up as a comprehensive marketing platform and CRM.
