With the RevenueCat and Iterable integration, you can personalize and launch Iterable campaigns based on in-app purchase and subscription events from RevenueCat.
This can help you engage customers in real time, based on how they respond to monetizing and conversion events. For example, you could automatically send push notifications to a user who signs up for a new subscription after a free trial or send an SMS to users who have requested a refund.

Configure the SDKs
First, you'll need to set up the same user identities in both the RevenueCat and Iterable SDKs in order to send events to the right user profiles in Iterable. You can also add a campaign and/or template ID to attribute events to specific Iterable campaigns and/or templates.
Set up the user ID field(s)
In order for Iterable to sync RevenueCat events to the right user profile,
you'll need to set up either the
$iterableUserId subscriber attribute
in the RevenueCat SDK. If neither of these fields exists, Iterable will

To connect RevenueCat to Iterable, you’ll need to copy the server-side API key for your Iterable project.
You can only view/copy an API key in Iterable when you first create it.
Don’t have an API key for your project yet? Create a new one.
Once you’ve located your server-side API key, head to RevenueCat to finish setting up the integration.
Once you’ve configured the RevenueCat SDK and the Iterable SDK to have the same user identities and have located the server-side API key for your Iterable project, navigate to the RevenueCat dashboard to turn on the integration.
- Open up your project in the RevenueCat dashboard and find the Integrations card in the left menu. Select +New.
- In the Integrations menu, select Iterable.
- Paste your Iterable server-side API key into the API key field.
- (Optional) If you have a separate Iterable sandbox project, you can also enter the corresponding API key in the Sandbox API key field.
- Enter the event names that RevenueCat should send, or choose the default event names.
- Choose whether you want RevenueCat to report proceeds (after the app store cut) or revenue (gross sales).
