Hi there. Using the Mailchimp integration, is there a way to import a list from Mailchimp into an existing Klaviyo list? I’m trying to maintain a single list, and don’t want to deal with merging a new list into our main list.
I tried unchecking the “Create Klaviyo lists from Mailchimp lists” checkbox in integration settings, but doesn’t seem to work. Probably this feature was for intended for something else. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, –oo

Great question! Having a single list is highly beneficial and great practice!
As mentioned in the How to Migrate from MailChimp article, the setting of Create Klaviyo lists from MailChimp lists is meant to sync all your existing MailChimp lists to Klaviyo as they are and would not sync them to an existing Klaviyo list. To import a MailChimp list to an existing Klaviyo list, I would suggest manually exporting the MailChimp list and importing it into your desired Klaviyo list.
After exporting your list from MailChimp, you can import it into your desired Klaviyo list by following the instructions found in the How to Add Subscribers to an Existing List article. If you were having trouble in your import, I would also recommend taking a look at our How To Troubleshoot List Imports article.
