TikTok Integration

If you want to schedule posts on TikTok, you'll need to create and configure an app for this platform. This guide will walk you through the setup process.

1. Create a Developer account

The first step in creating a TikTok app is to create a developer account on the TikTok developer platform. To do this, go to the TikTok developer platform website and sign up for an account.

2. Create a new app

Once you have a developer account, go to the TikTok Developer Dashboard and click Connect an App in the top right corner.

App configuration

Basic info

Fill out the required information, such as your app name, app icon, category.

For the Description, use this text:

Our application boosts engagement, automates scheduling, and enhances analytics for growth.


TikTok requires you to provide Terms of Service URL and Privacy Policy URL:


With Mixpost you can generate Terms of use and Privacy policy pages in seconds. More details

Website URL

Enable the Configure for Web option and enter your website URL.


TikTok requires a fully developed website to approve your application; they do not approve it for private use or similar purposes. You'll need to create a website with at least 2-3 pages using platforms like WordPress to meet their requirements. Ideally, your Mixpost application should be hosted on a subdomain, while the marketing page is located on the main domain.

Direct Post

By default, TikTok allows you to upload content as drafts, enabling creators to edit further before posting. If you prefer that scheduled posts be published automatically, enable the Direct Post option in the Content Posting API section.


By enabling Direct Post an additional audit of your application is required.
