How To Articles

Stopping a Mailchimp campaign can be a simple task, but it’s crucial to comprehend the necessary steps to ensure it is done accurately. As an experienced Mailchimp user for my own email marketing, I am able to share my personal advice and insights to assist you in effectively managing this procedure.

Step 1: Accessing Your Mailchimp Account

The first step in stopping a Mailchimp campaign is to log in to your Mailchimp account. Once you are logged in, you will be directed to the Mailchimp dashboard, where you can manage all aspects of your email marketing campaigns.

Step 2: Navigating to the Campaigns Page

On the Mailchimp dashboard, you will find a navigation menu on the left-hand side. Click on the “Campaigns” tab to access the page where you can view and manage all of your active and past email campaigns.

Step 3: Locating the Campaign to Stop

Once you are on the Campaigns page, you will see a list of your active campaigns. Locate the campaign that you want to stop and click on its title to access its details page.

Step 4: Pausing the Campaign

On the campaign details page, you will find a button labeled “Pause.” Click on this button to pause the campaign. Pausing a campaign will stop the scheduled sending of any remaining emails in the campaign, but it will not remove any emails that have already been sent.

Step 5: Confirming the Pause

After clicking the “Pause” button, a confirmation prompt will appear. Confirm your action by clicking “Pause Campaign” in the prompt. This will finalize the process of stopping the campaign.


Stopping a Mailchimp campaign is a simple process that can be done through the Mailchimp dashboard in just a few steps. By following these steps, you can ensure that your campaign is effectively paused, giving you time to make any necessary adjustments or changes. Remember, pausing a campaign will only stop the scheduled sending of future emails, so be sure to communicate any necessary updates or changes to your subscribers in a timely manner.
