MCWP: MailChimp for WordPress is one of the best WordPress MailChimp plugins available.

This plugin enables you to create forms directly in WordPress that connect to your MailChimp lists via the MailChimp API.

Typically, this plugin wouldn’t work on a static site, but Strattic has released special support for it and we couldn't be more excited for our customers to use it! 🥳 🎉
