What Is Zapier?

Zapier lets you easily connect the web apps you use, making it easy to automate tedious tasks.

You can wait for third-party app developers to offer the SaaS integrations you need. You can hire expensive freelance programmers to build custom software for you.

Or you can simply do it yourself with Zapier, and then get back to the work that matters most to your business.

How It Works

1. Make a Zap

Here's an example of a Zap:

When I receive a new email in Gmail, send me an SMS message.

The first part (receiving a new email) is the trigger. The second part (sending an SMS message) is the action.

Another example:

When I get a new entry from a Wufoo form, create a new lead in Salesforce.

You can create Zaps like these using over 200 web apps without knowing anything about code.

2. We Do The Work

Once you've made a Zap, we'll run it for you automatically without any additional effort on your part.

You can monitor activity in your dashboard, manage your connected accounts, and turn Zaps on and off anytime you want.

3. You Save Time & Money

With Zapier taking care of repetitive tasks, you get to focus on the exciting business challenges that need your attention.

There's no need to hire expensive developers or spend time building complex service integrations yourself.
