MailChimp is changing their free tier

What’s Changing?

Mailchimp is making changes to it’s free email marketing plan for new users. On August 25, 2022, MailChimp announced changes to its 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.

Does this Affect Me?

If you’re already using MailChimp, then these new plan limits do not impact you. However, if you choose to move back to a free plan from a paid plan as an existing customer, then the new plan 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 to 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 provides 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.
