People Place Sync is an open source WordPress plugin that syncs a MailChimp subscriber list with the People Place Plugin.
We hope the plugin is flexible enough to accommodate your own MailChimp lists but some technical knowledge may be required to get it setup and working. At the very least you will require/need:

  • Your MailChimp API key
  • Your MailChimp List ID
  • A custom Postcode field with a field ID of POSTCODE in your MailChimp subscriber list
  • A custom Organisation field with a field ID of ORGANISATI in your MailChimp subscriber list
  • A custom URL field with a field ID of URL in your MailChimp subscriber list

There is a 150000 subscriber list limit.
Help support development by purchasing this plugin.


This is the first version of the plugin and it may have a few minor bugs. Please let us know if you experience problems.
Please submit all bugs, questions and suggestions to the GitHub Issues queue.
