How To Migrate Email List From Aweber To Mailchimp

Hello! Today, I would like to discuss my own encounter and the sequential procedure of transferring an email roster from AWeber to Mailchimp. Transferring your email roster between various platforms may seem overwhelming, but with proper guidance, it can be a simple and effortless process. So, let’s get started!


As a blogger and email marketer, I understand the importance of having a reliable and efficient email marketing platform. Both AWeber and Mailchimp are popular choices for managing email lists, but for various reasons, you may decide to switch from AWeber to Mailchimp. This could be due to better features, pricing plans, or simply a need for change. Whatever the reason may be, I’m here to help you make the transition as easy as possible.

Step 1: Exporting your email list from AWeber

The first step in migrating your email list is to export it from AWeber. AWeber provides a simple process for exporting your contacts in a CSV (Comma-Separated Values) file format. Here’s how:

  1. Log in to your AWeber account and navigate to the “Subscribers” tab.
  2. Select the list you want to export.
  3. Click on the “Subscribers” dropdown menu and choose “Manage Subscribers”.
  4. On the next page, click on the “Options” dropdown menu and select “Export”.
  5. Choose the fields you want to export and click on the “Export Subscribers” button.
  6. Save the exported CSV file to your computer.

Step 2: Importing your email list to Mailchimp

Now that you have exported your email list from AWeber, it’s time to import it into Mailchimp. Mailchimp also allows you to import contacts using a CSV file format. Follow these steps:

  1. Login to your Mailchimp account and navigate to the Audience dashboard.
  2. Click on the “Audience” dropdown menu and choose “Manage Audience”.
  3. On the next page, click on the “Import” button.
  4. Choose the “CSV or Tab-delimited file” option and upload the CSV file you exported from AWeber.
  5. Map the fields from your CSV file to the corresponding Mailchimp audience fields.
  6. Review the import details and click on the “Import” button to start the process.

Step 3: Verifying and testing

After importing your email list into Mailchimp, it’s important to verify and test that everything transferred correctly. Here are a few key things to check:

  • Verify that the total number of subscribers matches what you had in AWeber.
  • Check that all the custom fields, tags, or segments are correctly imported.
  • Spot-check a few email addresses to ensure that the data is accurate.


And there you have it! By following these steps, you can successfully migrate your email list from AWeber to Mailchimp. Remember, it’s always a good idea to inform your subscribers of any changes and ensure a smooth transition. Migrating your email list can be a valuable step in optimizing your email marketing strategy and taking advantage of the features offered by Mailchimp. So, go ahead and make that switch, and enjoy the benefits of a new email marketing platform!
