How to Integrate Supercast with a Membership Platform using Zapier
Creators have the ability to integrate their membership platform that is Zapier-compatible with Supercast.
Under this set-up, your membership platform manages the member sign-up and billing, while Supercast provides private RSS feeds and content to members in their podcast players. Supercast achieves this by displaying player links in your member dashboard that members can click to connect to their private podcast feeds:
Before we proceed, if your membership platform is listed below, we recommend using our specific integration built for that platform instead of Zapier:
- WooCommerce (please contact email@example.com for guidance)
If your membership platform isn't listed above, please ensure:
Step 1: Zapier Invite
Accept Supercast's public Zapier invite.
Step 2: Create subscribers in Zapier
Whenever you have a new subscriber, you can create those subscribers in Zapier using the Supercast “Create Subscription” call. We’ll create the subscription right away after receiving that.
Note that depending on the source that you’re using to create the subscriber, there may be some delays (if the trigger you’re using shows as an “Instant trigger” you should be good though).
In order to include player links on your website, you'll need to include an identifier from your system so you can refer to this subscriber in the future, and map it to the "Unique Subscriber ID" field in Zapier. This should be a value that is unique to this subscriber, and is something non-guessable like a UUID.
You can choose to send a welcome e-mail to users, which will include player links in it in this step.
Step 3: Include player links on a gated page
Next, add the following to the page that you want the player links to appear in, where you want them to appear:
<supercast-player-links subdomain=“(your subdomain)” subscription-identifier=“(unique id)“></supercast-player-links>
where “subscription identifier” is a the identifier that you previously supplied while creating the subscriber in Zapier.
Step 4: Disable Subscribers when they unsubscribe
You can disable subscribers using the “Delete Subscriber” action in Zapier. When a subscriber's feed is deleted, their feed contents will be replaced with a message to get in touch with you (we’re adding the ability to have a “disabled episode” in the very near term).
The only gap right now is a field for adding the unique ID in the “Create Subscriber” action in Zapier, but everything else can be done right now if you want to get started.
