Using Memberstack 2.0? There is an updated version of this article here.

Move member data from Memberstack to hundreds of other applications, or data from those applications right back to Memberstack without code.

About this article:

  • Difficulty level: Medium

  • Technical background needed: Intermediate

  • Estimated time required to complete: 5 - 20 mins

Note: Current version: 1.2.1

Important: If you are using 1.0 of Memberstack do not use the latest 2.0+ version of the Zapier app. The 2.0+ Zapier app will only work with Memberstack 2.0. (Image below).



How to access Memberstack's Zapier app‍

Follow the steps below or check out this quick Tutorial Video.


Join the beta → Use this invite link to gain access to our Zapier app.


Generate an API Key → Zapier will ask you to input an API key from Memberstack. You'll find that key on the Integrations page. Use the button to reveal your API key.



‍IMPORTANT: Keep your API key safe! If you share it with the wrong people, they can use it to access your account. Also, your existing integrations will break if you generate a new one.


What's possible with the Zapier app?


What's a trigger? Triggers are how you can start automated workflows whenever something happens in Memberstack. New members, profile updates, plan cancellations, and deletions are triggers that provide essential data you can pass to another application. E.g. When a member signs up → send them an email in Mailgun.

  • New member

  • Member updated (profile information excluding membership)

  • Membership canceled (fires immediately for one time memberships and at the end of the billing cycle for recurring memberships)

  • Member deleted

  • Membership Changed (Only fires when a member upgrades or downgrades their membership. Does not fire on new signups or cancelations)


*Note: Custom fields will not show up in Zapier unless the example member pulled has a value in the field. If the example member does not have a value in the field the field will not be shown in Zapier.



What's an action? Actions are what happens after a trigger is fired.

  • Update member

  • Create free member


New member in Memberstack

email: member email address.
   type: Free or Paid
   subscribed_to: is the unique ID associated with that membership plan.
   status: action, canceled, trialing, etc.

id: is unique to each member. This will change when a member changes membership levels.

profile: custom fields created in Memberstack.

created_at: year, month, day, and time this member was created.

id: the unchanging & unique ID that identifies this member.



Member updated in Memberstack (excluding membership info)


Note: When updating a member using a form in a modal, the changes may not show immediately. The user may have to refresh the page to see the changes. We suggest sending the user to a separate page after form submission or using custom JavaScript to reload the page after the form has been submitted to show the changes.


Membership canceled


Member deleted


Update member action

In the following example, Tip One, Name, and Webflow ID are custom fields.

Common Zapier Errors & Troubleshooting

"I can't find the Memberstack Zapier app when I search in Zapier"

Memberstack's Zapier app is currently in beta, which means you'll need to join the beta before it will appear in "Make a Zap" search results. Note: Even after you join the beta, our app won't appear in some Zapier search bars. You'll need to click "Make a Zap" and then search.


Note: Our Zapier app is in beta, so it can only run 100 times in 60 seconds. 


What is Zapier?

"Easy automation for busy people. Zapier moves info between your web apps automatically, so you can focus on your most important work."


Why should I use Zapier?

Zapier is an online automation tool that connects to popular apps, such as Gmail, Slack, Mailchimp, and more. It allows you to connect two or more apps to automate repetitive tasks without coding or relying on developers to build the integration.
