Your store includes a connector plugin to the MailChimp email marketing platform. When activated this plugin will let you import your newslists and let your users subscribe
to your MailChimp newslists directly from your store front-end. Your visitors will be able to subscribe to these newslists using the News form or by checking the newslist
name at checkout and also during their profile edit/creation.
The Mailchimp plugin offers a feature that will let track orders made by visitors who came to your
site by clicking on a link located inside one of the Newsletter sent out to your subscribers. It is called the ”Analytics 360” feature.

particular language (useful to have different list for each language).
