Tagging your Thinkific students in Convertkit
Modified on: Sun, 3 Mar, 2019 at 3:57 PM
You are able to link your Thinkific site with your Convertkit account so that your students will automatically be added as users and tagged in Convertkit.
To do this, head to the Integrations page of the admin dashboard to connect your ConvertKit account.
Connect your ConvertKit account to Thinkific
You will need to log into your ConvertKit account and locate your API key settings. You can access or sign up for a ConvertKit account here - Sign Up for ConvertKit
Once logged in, you can access the API key under Account > Account Settings > API Key.
Connect your ConvertKit tags
In order for your users to be created and tagged in ConvertKit, you'll first need to create the tags from your ConvertKit dashboard.
Then, head back to Integrations > ConvertKit in your Thinkific admin dashboard to link the tags to specific site events.
Note: A user will only be created in ConvertKit if they perform one of the actions associated with a tag.
Here's what each of the actions mean; i.e. what the student will need to do on your Thinkific site for the tag to be added in ConvertKit.
Action name in Thinkific dashboard

This should help get you started, but just let us know if you have any questions at all!
Enable Student Payment Tracking
You can sync all of the orders that occur on your Thinkific site with your subscriber profiles on ConvertKit by turning on "Enable student purchase tracking".
When enabled, each time a payment is made on Thinkific, the transaction information (purchase amount, discount applied, and total paid) are automatically passed to your ConvertKit account and attached to the subscriber profile of the user that made the purchase. Read more about how you can use this information to segment your users here.
Note: if a student uses a coupon that provides them a 100% discount off their purchase, this order will not be sent to ConvertKit as a purchase event.
