In July 2014 SimpleTix added a new feature to support MailChimp's eCommerce360. After an email is sent from MailChimp you can track all tickets sales & event registrations where people clicked a link from that email.

As soon as the order is complete, SimpleTix will alert MailChimp of the completed order.

Setup Steps

Step 1: Create a new API Key

Step 4: Send!

 

Now all the email will contain special links to your site. That include rich details about what the original link was (text or image), and most importantly the Ecommerce360 tracking info.

You can now run some clever marketing efforts such as segmenting your original list and sending  an email to just the people that have not bought tickets. Or sending just the people that did buy tickets an invite to your next event.

For example, here is how to segment all the recipients that did not buy tickets, so you can email them again about a special deal.
