How to Cancel a Campaign in Mailchimp

We are humans, and we can make a mistake while creating a campaign. However, MailChimp offers a handy Stop Delivery feature to cancel a plain-text or regular campaign.

Not only that, but you can also track the subscribers who received the canceled campaign. This way, you can create a separate segment to either resend later or exclude them.

  • However, you should consider the eligibility criteria to cancel a campaign:
  • You can withdraw only plain-text or regular campaigns.
  • The campaign should have a minimum of 10,000 recipients.
  • You can cancel the campaign while you are sending emails.
  • You’ll receive your unused credits if you have a legacy Pay As You Go account after the cancellation process.

How to recover deleted contact on Mailchimp
