Install and Activate

This plugin requires the free Five Star Restaurant Reservations plugin. It must be installed and activated on your site to work.

To install the MailChimp addon:

  1. Go to the Plugins page in your WordPress admin area.
  2. Click the Add Plugin link at the top of the page.
  3. Click the Upload Plugin link at the top of the page.
  4. Upload the file which you downloaded with your purchase.
  5. Once installed, click the Activate Now link. If you don’t see that link, you can go to your Plugins list at any time and activate it from there.

Activate your license key

Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin, you should activate your license, which entitles you to support and updates for one year.

Go to the Bookings > MailChimp License page in your WordPress admin area. Enter the License Key which was provided in your purchase receipt and click the Save Changes button. When the page reloads, you’ll see a button to Activate License.

If you’re adding this to a development site, remember to deactivate the license before moving the site to a live URL, then reactivate it on the live site.

You’re all set! Now take a look at how to connect to your MailChimp account.
