- After setup is complete, the next step is integration. There are two methods for accessing the Sailthru API:
- Direct API Call – In this method, your website contains code that calls the API
- Tinypass API Call – In this method, Tinypass handles all calls to the API
Contact Tinypass to determine the best course of action for your business: If TinyPass is making the API calls to Sailthru you will need to provide them with the application-specific API key.
To communicate with the Sailthru API, you need to use one of our client libraries, written in common programming languages in our GitHub repository. However, by default, this communication is restricted. Application-specific API keys act as an unlocking mechanism, granting you access to the API. If you require an unsupported client library, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
API Client Libraries Overview
Once you have set up access to the Sailthru API, Tinypass will be making calls to the Sailthru user and purchase APIs. You can use the user API for user acquisition, and the purchase API to track purchase behavior.
- Purchase and user data from Tinypass transactions will now pass directly to Sailthru’s APIs! Please contact Tinypass, or Sailthru Partner Integrations at email@example.com, with any questions.
Once user and purchase data has passed to Sailthru, it will appear in users’ profiles.
It is a wise to track the source of your users’ signups (i.e. Sailthru or Tinypass). We suggest you place users on a Master List, and filter them using Source Lists. However, follow the best practice established by your CSM.
