We have published our nonprofit Ticket API so that anyone can use it. This is the same API we use to support our Ticket Checkin App, which is an extension of the OpenAPI that that RunSignup made popular over the past 10 years in the endurance market. The API documentation, including sandbox is located at https://www.givesignup.org/API.
OpenAPIs are important for several reasons:
- Allow secure programmatic access to your data
- Allows third party software vendors to integrate ticket data into their applications
- Ensures an open ecosystem of technology providers
The RunSignup | GiveSignup API is very secure and stable. It has been used for millions and millions of data transfers with dozens of applications over the past decade. We will continue to evolve it as new needs arise since we want to make it easy for you to really use the data that you own.
The API will allow CRM and Donation Management systems to easily access data from your nonprofit ticket events and bring that into your overall data management system. Of course, most nonprofits who rely on a CRM or Donation Management System will likely just begin with exporting data in spreadsheets from GiveSignup Tickets and importing it. If your volume is high, you will want to point your vendor to our API page, and we will be more than happy to help them.
