Multiple Mailchimp Lists

How it Affects your Landing Page
When you create a new giveaway campaign with Required Opt-ins, you can include a unique newsletter name to correspond with the Mailchimp mailing list you connect.

For authors on Plus and Pro with existing Newsletter Names, you can add this information during giveaway campaign creation. You can also edit any existing giveaway campaigns with required opt-ins. If you don't change your newsletter name, the landing page will show your default newsletter name.
