ActiveCampaign Integration

Prerequisite

You need a Zapier account first. If you don't have an account, click here to create a Zapier account.

Introduction

In this article, we will try integrating both ClickSend and ActiveCampaign. So what we want to achieve here is for new contacts that are added to an opt in list in ActiveCampaign to be added to your contacts in ClickSend for easy communication using ClickSend's dashboard and API.

So, let's get started.

Instructions

Step 1:

Login to your Zapier account. And then click Make a Zap! button.

Step 2:

Let's search and select ActiveCampaign as our trigger app. Next, check New Contact Added to List as our trigger action. Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 3: 

Let's link your ActiveCampaign account.

Select Choose Account.

Click Connect an Account button.

Enter your API URL and API Key.

Then click the Yes, Continue button.

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 4:

Let finish up our trigger app setup.

Go back to your Zapier setup page.

Then click Fetch & Continue button.

Lastly the Continue button.

Step 5:

Ok, let's set up our Action app. Let's search and choose ClickSend. 

Next select Create Contact as our action. 

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 6:

Next, let's add your ClickSend account. Click Connect an Account button.

There should be a popup saying to add or allow your Zapier and ClickSend account to be linked together.

Type in your ClickSend username and API key.

Click the Test button to check if it was successful.

Then click Save + Continue button.

Step 7:

Let's set up our Create Contact template.

In the Contact List input box, select the contact list that you want the new contacts to be added to (ActiveCampaign contacts etc...)

Set the contacts First Name, Last Name, Mobile, Email, Address, Etc... to their corresponding fields from ActiveCampaign.

Then click Continue button.

Step 8:

Let's finish up everything.

Click Create & Continue button.

Then the Finish button.

Lastly, name your Zap, and turn it ON

Amendment:

You can also set up an Opt out list in the same way where contacts added to your ActiveCampaign opt out list will get added to your ClickSend opt out list to easily remove contacts from both systems.
