This helpfile explains you the basics to connect WP Webhooks with Zapier.
If you want to learn more about how to receive data from Zapier, feel free to check out this manual.
Send Data within a Flows automation
If you are using the Flows feature of WP Webhooks, you can simply select the “Zapier” integration from the integration dropdown of any action you add. This allows you to add your Zapier webhook URL, which will then receive the data in return.
Send Data directly on a WordPress event
You can also create a direct connection between WordPress and Zapier by using our Trigger (Send Data) feature. This allows you to create direct connections to Zapier without the need of using a whole Flow.
It supports all of our available integrations.
Set up a trigger
To send data from WP Webhooks to Zapier, you need to use Zapiers default “Webhooks by Zapier” app as our app only integrates actions at this point.
How to set up the Zapier Webhooks extension
- To get started, please create a new Scenario within Zapier.
- Once created, open up the Zap and add your first step. This step is responsible for triggering the Zap.
- As the first step, please search for “Webhooks” and select the “Webhooks by Zapier” app from Zapier and select the “Catch hook” trigger event.
- After that, you will see the “Setup trigger” step of the “Webhooks by Zapier app”.
As seen in the screenshot above, Zapier will generate a webhook URL for you. Please place this URL into the WP Webhooks trigger of your choice.
To add it, please head over to your WordPress dashboard -> Settings -> WP Webhooks -> Send Data, and add your webhook URL there.
Once the URL is added within your chosen trigger of WP Webhooks, you successfully created a connection between our plugin and Zapier.
At this point, every time your selected trigger is fired, Zapier will receive the data of that trigger and can use it to fire further actions.
You can also customize and filter the behavior of the trigger directly within WP Webhooks. To do that, simply open the settings next to the webhook URL inside of WP Webhooks and adjust the settings to your liking.
That’s it! You successfully set up your connection.
