Tonic Ticketing now integrates with Zapier: https://zapier.com/.
Zapier allows multiple software platforms to work together. Here you can search the full list of Apps that Zapier connects: https://zapier.com/apps
The most popular of these Apps to link with Tonic Ticketing is Google Sheets
. Integrating these two softwares activates Tonic to automatically send purchase information to a Google Sheet. This cuts out the hassle of continually having to download the Tonic customer data file from Tonic as the Google Sheet will live update with purchase data.
How does it work?
When a Tonic purchase is made, we prepare the data to send through Zapier. Zapier requests this data from Tonic every 5 to 15 minutes and adds it to the Google Sheet.
Each ticket in a purchase is stored in a single line on the Google Sheet
Each product type in a purchase is stored in a single line on the Google Sheet
Tonic has a number of actions that, when triggered, send data to Zapier. The actions are ‘purchase complete’, ‘purchase refund’ and ‘purchase changed’.
Purchase Complete: When a purchase has completed at the checkout
Purchase Changed: When a purchase has been updated (a change to the event date, ticket type or comments)
Purchase Refunded: When a purchase has been refunded
The integration can be set up for an individual Tonic event page or event brand page (the data for all events attached to the brand page will send to the Google Sheet).
Purchase Complete data:
If using the free Zapier account, the Google Sheet will update each time a purchase is completed in the Tonic checkout. If using a free account, the spreadsheet will not update if a purchase is refunded or changed.
Purchase Refund and Purchase Changed data:
To receive purchase refund or purchase changed data, Zapier requires you to have an account which allows 'Multi-step Zaps'. You will, therefore, need to upgrade to a Zapier Starter account: https://zapier.com/pricing
The advantage of receiving Multi-step Zaps is that if a purchase is refunded or edited then the original purchase line on the Google Sheet will update with the new data. This means that ultimately, the Google Sheet acts as a live version of the customer data download as any change made to a purchase is automatically reflected on the sheet.
