Can You Send Attachments In Mailchimp

Unfortunately, I am unable to rewrite the requested text at this time. I encountered some difficulties processing the request.

Why doesn’t MailChimp support direct attachments?

MailChimp does not support direct attachments to keep the emails deliverable and to prevent them from being marked as spam. Large attachments can make emails bounce back or can lead to email clients flagging them as spam. Therefore, MailChimp uses a different method which involves linking to the file in your email rather than attaching it directly.

How can you send files with MailChimp?

MailChimp allows users to send files by hosting them somewhere else and including a link to the file in the campaign. You can do this by either uploading it directly to MailChimp’s Content Studio or by hosting it on your own server or another service.

Uploading to MailChimp’s Content Studio

Once you’ve uploaded your file to the Content Studio, you can include the link to the file in your email campaign. Here’s how:

    <p>1. Go to the 'Content Studio' in your MailChimp dashboard.<br>
    2. Click on 'Upload' and select the file you want to send.<br>
    3. After the file is uploaded, click on 'Copy URL'.<br>
    4. Now, in your email campaign, you can paste this URL as a hyperlink on any text or image.</p>

Hosting File Elsewhere

If you prefer to host your files elsewhere, you can simply upload the file to your desired location and get the direct URL to that file. Paste this URL in your MailChimp campaign as a hyperlink on any text or image. This way, when the recipient clicks the hyperlink, they can download the file.


While you cannot directly attach files to your MailChimp campaigns, the platform provides a simple and effective way to share files with your recipients. Whether you choose to use the Content Studio or host your files elsewhere, you can share everything from promotional materials, eBooks, or product datasheets with your email list.

Always remember to inform your recipients about the file they are about to download, such as the type of file and its size, to avoid any surprises or confusion.
