Zapier was created by Julian
Hi everybody,

I saw that there was a Zapier-Request for another of your components already, and I would like to support it. Zapier is the largest Way to connect different Apps togehter, AcyMailing is already working on a connection and it would be great to be able to use a Zapier-Connection with JoomDonation also.

Let me shortly explain: Zapier offers a "connection-service". Each Connection is named a "Zap" and is separated in "trigger", "filters" and "actions".
A trigger can for example be a booking of a seminar. When this trigger is fired, the Zap can create "Actions" out of the data, for example create a Slack or new customer in a CRM or a Task on Trello to welcome the user by a phone-call. The Zap can transfer all neccecary data.

Zap has also some downsides. Well, only one downside: It is expensive. But however, the service is really, really usefull. And it would be great to be able to have a trigger by a subscription to a seminar. Please keep in mind: They have a very robust API so it should not be too much work to create a Zap for your components. As a bonus: You can create only one Zapier-App that handeles all of your components. ;)

All the best, Julian!

I'm using Zapier's mySQL "connection" to check my database for new EventBooking registrations and "zap" that record into my CRM. It works, but an actual official JoomDonation "connection" via the Zapier API would be way better (and more accessible for most users).
In addition, JoomDonation would get it's name listed in the "connections" list, which could drive more customers to their products too :)
