Step 2: Create a Mailchimp API key

Navigating to the account section in Maichimp

Click the Extras menu and select API keys.

Maichimp profile section

Click on the Create A Key button to generate your Mailchimp API key.

Creating a key

Upon clicking the button, an API key will be generated. Note the key and keep it safe and secret. This key will be used to authenticate API requests to Mailchimp API.

Mailchimp API Key

Now that we’ve got the Mailchimp API key, we can move to the next step, which is getting the Mailchimp API endpoint URL to import Mailchimp data to Google Sheets.

Step 3: Get the Mailchimp API endpoint URL

Navigate to the Marketing API page. You can also go there by clicking Read The API Documentation and clicking the relevant link.

On the left of the page under API reference is a list of available endpoints. Click on the one you want to retrieve the information, eg Lists/Audiences for data related to your contacts.

Endpoints list

On clicking the API heading, all available endpoints within that will be listed below. We can click on any specific endpoint to get the Mailchimp API URL and the query parameters.

Available endpoints under Lists/Audiences category

Click on the Mailchimp API endpoint of your choice to expand it, say, Get list info for information about all your Mailchimp lists or audience.

Expanding the desired endpoint

On expanding the Mailchimp API endpoint, we’ll see the generic Mailchimp API URL as well as the available query parameters on the left.

Endpoint URL and query parameters

The default Mailchimp API endpoint URL appends all the parameters without their values. We can fill them with corresponding values mentioned under Query Parameters.

For the endpoint we’ve selected, the Mailchimp API URL is as given under.


The ${dc} is the data centre ID of your Mailchimp account. This value is mandatory. The query parameters are not compulsory but they can be used to filter the results. What they are and what values they take are given on the left.

We’ll remove the filters, ie remove the query parameters and enter the data centre ID in the Mailchimp API URL to fetch all data unfiltered.

This is the Mailchimp API URL we’ll use to import Mailchimp data to Google Sheets.

Open Google Sheets and launch Amigo Data to connect Mailchimp to Google Sheets. To launch Amigo Data, click Extensions→Amigo Data→Connect.

If you want to filter the results and/or get more information, you can specify the parameters in the URL (as mentioned earlier) or in Amigo Data.

In the Details tab, add the query parameters by clicking the “+QUERY” button. Eg, to increase the count limit, which by default is 10, we’d specify it as under.

Key: count, value: 1000 (This will return 1000 values.)

Adding query parameters

Likewise, we can add any number of query parameters.

If you want to or need to have these data updated automatically, you can do so by setting a refresh schedule in Amigo Data, and the data will be fetched automatically. Learn how to set a refresh schedule and set alerts so that you and your team are alerted whenever changes occur.
