What is Zapier?

Zapier (rhymes with Happier) is a 3rd party Software solution which supports integrations between over 2,000 SW solutions. By utilizing the WSM Zapier connectors, you can pass information between WSM and any other SW tools you may be using which have Zapier support . Zapier uses a term called "Zaps" which are a collection of connectors that allow you to translate data from from system to another and performs actions on that data.

 

 

 

Here are some quick examples on how you might use Zapier Automation with Web Shop Manager:

  • Take all new Orders and send the Order totals over to Quickbooks online
  • Send a thank you email through Gmail for every new Order that comes in
  • Post a message to a slack channel on every new Order or when an Order is updated
  • Send new orders to Ship Station, and take the shipping information returned and update your Orders in WSM
  • Look at all new Order email addresses and add any new emails to your mailing list
  • and many more based on your creativity, need, and the tools you use....
