Integrating your Gumroad product with external services
We are now allowing our creators to integrate outside services and connect them into their products. This will allow creators to offer a more diverse product set, and open up the ability to really build communities!
Circle is a modern community platform, developed specifically for creators. The tool allows you to bring together your discussions, memberships, and content on one platform, and integrate a thriving community wherever your audience is, all under your own brand.
To add a Circle community to your product offering, perform the following steps:
1) Toggle the button under Integrations on the Product edit page:
2) Authorize Gumroad to access the Circle account by copying and pasting an API token from your Circle settings. According to Circle's API documentation, community admins can obtain an API key by going to the Settings → API page in their community.
**Note** API Access only comes with Circle's Professional or Enterprise plans.
3) After Circle is connected with the product, you will need to provide two fields (Community and Space Group) from the dropdown:
When the Circle integration is turned on for a regular product, Gumroad will automatically invite the buyer to the configured Circle group.
When the Circle integration is turned on for a membership product, Gumroad will automatically invite the buyer to the configured Circle group, and also disinvite the buyer when the subscription expires (on cancellation date). Otherwise, regular products and memberships will be handled the same.
Integrating with Versions
If your product has versions or tiers, you can opt-out the integration from any of the versions, which will allow you to only offer the Circle community as a premium add-on (if desired):
While not yet available, we'll be working on enabling Discord integration for our creators and their customers in 2022. Stay tuned and follow our public Roadmap for more updates!
