Then, click the “Authorize” button to grant Drip access to your Gumroad account. Once we have access, we will let Gumroad know to ping us anytime you make a sale.

Migrating from the ping-based Gumroad integration
If you hooked your Drip account to Gumroad before April 2015, you are likely using our older ping-based integration. Not to worry, everything will continue to work normally. However, our new integration flow is a bit easier to set up and migrating over is simple. Here’s how it’s done.

If your trigger is filtered by product_id as shown above, then take note of the ID before making any changes. (If you are not sure which product the ID goes with, send us an email and we’ll help you out.)
Then, change the trigger type from “Performed a custom event” to “Made a purchase” and follow the steps outlined at the top of this document.
Once all your automation rules are updated, remove the old ping URL from your Gumroad settings. Head to your Gumroad account settings, click the “Developer” tab, and then delete the getdrip.com URL from the Ping endpoint field:
And that’s it! As always, don’t hesitate to contact support if you need a hand.
