Integrating with JVZoo

Note: This article covers the simple integration - we also have an advanced integration tutorial if you have more specific requirements 

JVZoo is an affiliate network and marketplace for selling digital products that has grown in popularity in recent years.  One of the reasons they are so popular is that merchants who use them can offer instant commissions for purchases through Paypal.

How the integration with JVZoo Works

JVZoo allows you to use a special system called IPN notifications to send a message to your OptimizeMember system when someone purchases through JVZoo.  This will allow you to add the buyer as a member of the membership level you specify 

Before You Start Integrating with JVZoo

Here's what you'll need before you follow this guide:

  • A membership site setup with your pages protected, or at least a membership level setup that you want to provide secured access to
  • A Paypal Business account

Here's How to Integrate JVZoo

Please note that your PayPal account should be set to accept USD currency since that is what JVzoo accepts.  Otherwise the process may not work entirely.
