[UPDATE 05/25/16: DAP v5.0.5 is now available for download. It includes improved page load speed for the DAP Admin Home/Report page and also some minor cosmetic updates.]
We’re thrilled to announce DAP integration with ConvertKit and also the BETA release of DAP v5.0.4!
ConvertKit is a rapidly growing Email Marketing Platform that comes with simple, elegant, easy to design templates and great automation capabilities. It offers the benefits of automation at a lower cost than other advanced automation programs like Infusionsoft or Active Campaign.
ConvertKit offers advanced email marketing capabilities without sacrificing ease of use.

ConvertKit can tag subscribers and segment your email list based on certain actions your subscribers take, such as signing up from a specific form, downloading or purchasing a certain product, clicking a specific link, etc. Then, you can run campaigns for specific tags. You can also setup followup sequences to trigger certain events.
The integration between DAP and ConvertKit is 2-way.
DAP leverages the ConvertKit Zap to automatically add subscribers (that signup via a ConvertKit form) to a DAP product. You’ll find the integration details in the video above. You’ll need a Zapier account for this integration.
You can use the DAP Products Page => Notifications tab -> Plugin Notification Field to configure DAP to automatically add users to your ConvertKit form with the specified tags. You can also configure DAP to remove tags from the subscriber when they lose access to a product in DAP.
DAP also sends membership “password” to ConvertKit so you can use ConvertKit to send out the initial welcome email with membership credentials.
You’ll find all the integration details in the video above.
Please note that this is a BETA release of DAP v5.0.4. If you have a LIVE Web Site with active subscriptions and members, then hold off on installing DAP 5.0.4 BETA until we release the FINAL version.
We hope to make DAP 5.0.x FINAL on May 25th, 2016.

What’s coming out next?
We’re working on several exciting new things that will help you grow your membership site. Zapier integration is one of the most requested integrations by Dappers. You’ll be happy to know that we’ve built an awesome new integration between Zapier & DAP :). This integration will allow you to pretty much integrate any 3rd party system (even if it does not have a built-in ZAP) with DAP.
More to come on that integration very soon! Stay tuned!
