What's “New and Improved”?
I'm sure many of you are familiar with Zapier already. There's been an existing MemberPress Zapier integration for some time. But these new developments will put your site operability into overdrive.
First off, the MemberPress Zapier integration is now public. Before, you'd need an invite to create zaps. Now, any MemberPress Plus or Pro user can create their own custom Zapier workflows, easy as can be.
Second, the integration now has a bunch of premade templates. Just go to the MemberPress page on Zapier.com, and grab one.
The dev team has already created zap templates for some of the most popular use cases, and we've got a whole lot more on the way.
How Does the Zapier Integration Help Your Business?
The number-one question is – how can I make this work for me?
I'm not judging – it's a good question to ask! We certainly don't want to waste your time. After all, the new Zapier integration is all about saving time. And we all know time is money, so saving some can only increase your business's revenue.
It's all about automation
That said, take one of our new zap templates for example. It can automatically add any new MemberPress user as a contact in Keap (an incredibly powerful CRM).
Or what about bookkeeping? Another one of our templates can generate a sales receipt in Quickbooks Online for every MemberPress transaction.
No need to spend the extra time exporting your transaction data. Instead, you can let the magic of Zapier handle it for you! The automation customization possibilities are literally incredible.
Zapier saves you time by allowing you to automate your workflows. It gives you less busy work and more freedom to grow your business.
You can create a more customized user experience without having to write a single line of code. That's because Zapier requires very little tech knowledge, allowing anyone to set up custom automations that are sure to lighten the ol' workload.

Now let's dig into how you can get started with Zapier (after I give my hands a quick rest from typing that list).
How To Start Using the MemberPress Zapier Integration
Not sure how to get started with the MemberPress Zapier Integration? Not to worry, we can help with that. And it's easy!
First off, you'll need to have MemberPress Plus or Pro and a Zapier account. Then, you'll need to install and activate MemberPress Developer Tools.
Once you've got that wrapped up, login to your Zapier.com account, and connect MemberPress using the “My Apps” tab on the left sidebar.
A new window will pop up asking for your MemberPress API Key and Website URL. These are both easy to find.
Your Website URL should be your domain name (with either http:// or https:// at the beginning) without the ending slash (/). If your domain has a “www”, be sure to include this in the Website URL – otherwise you might run into an error.
As a side note, remember you'll be transferring sensitive customer data. So you should make sure your website uses https to secure the connection between MemberPress and Zapier.
Next you'll add in your API key, which you can find on the MemberPress > Developer > REST API page:
From there, you'll get a prompt asking you to connect the two accounts. Click “Yes, Continue” to allow Zapier to connect with your MemberPress site.
Once that's done, you're good to go! Simple right? Once you've set up the Zapier MemberPress integration, you can get started creating your very first zap right away.
Use one of our premade templates, and you'll find that creating a zap is easy as pie. You can also create just about any configuration you can imagine from scratch.
Following is an example of how to do it.
Example Zap (from Scratch)
There's any number of Zaps you could create, so rather than explain the process in general, we'll check out an example.
In this instance, we want to set up a zap between our Mailchimp account and MemberPress. We want that zap to create a new member in MemberPress every time a visitor completes our opt-in form.
We'll also want this new user to be a free member with the option to upgrade later. Here's the process…
- Go into Zapier and choose “Mailchimp”.
- Select “New subscriber” and click continue.
- Confirm your Mailchimp account and select the appropriate list.
- On the left side panel, click “Add a step”.
- Scroll down and select MemberPress, and click on “Find a member”.
- Add another step, and select “Filter > Only Continue If > Email does not exist”.
- Add another step, select “Action > MemberPress > Create Member”.
- Preview the setup and make sure everything seems in order, selecting Username, Email and Name from the Mailchimp data.
- Add another step, select “MemberPress > Create transaction”.
- Fill in the user's data, copy the Membership ID for the free membership from your site, and finalize the rest of the data.
That's pretty much it!

This is just one example from the untold thousands of automations you can make with Zapier, but hopefully this gives you a good idea where to start.
Virtually any step in the process can be automated to make running an online business easier.
While Zapier is easy to use, it can be as complex as you want it to be. To learn more about what you can accomplish using the Zapier MemberPress integration, check out our Zapier Integration Support Docs.
