Check if user exists in MailChimp list


I am trying to use Flow to add users to  MailChimp list from my website.


However I can't see any way to check if the user already exists or not.  I can just use the Add User to List action, and if they don't currently exist they will be added and if they do already exist it just throws an error and the Flow run shows as Failed... which I don't want.


Can I do this kind of check?


HI MarkStokes,


Currently I don't think we have this kind of check. like if the user account is email address, we can not validate if the user account(valid email) exist unless we send the user the email. Hope I understand it correctly.

I think it's possible by using validate user email custom api. 

You could also go to the "Flow Idea" in this community to put this idea for voting


Could really do with the Mailchimp connector being updated to include this function...getting a bit tired of flows being marked as failed just because the 'Add to List' action tries to add someone who is already on the list!
