For a video walkthrough of how to run a Zoom webinar on Podia, check out the demo below.
Connecting your Zoom account
To connect your Zoom account, go to Store settings, Integrations page and click on Connect Zoom.
You will be prompted to sign in to Zoom, if you haven’t already. Once logged in, you will redirected to Podia with your Zoom account connected.
Selecting your Zoom webinar from the webinar edit page
To start selling your Zoom webinars, you will need to first create a new webinar. To do so:
- Click on the Products in the navigation
- Click on Create Product and select Webinar
- Enter the name of your product and click Create product
On the product edit page, click on either Link to Zoom webinar or Link to Zoom meeting and select the webinar/meeting you would like to start selling. You can only access upcoming webinars and meetings from this dropdown. Additionally, recurring meetings will not appear in this dropdown, as our integration does not yet support recurring events.
Once selected, your webinar timing should be updated as well. When you change these settings in Zoom, they are automatically updated in Podia as well.
It's key to make sure you have a Duration for your meeting in your Zoom settings. Otherwise, this will not allow you to publish on your Podia site if set to zero, as shown below.
Once you have finalized the Pricing settings, webinar instructions and reminder settings for your audience, you can go ahead and publish the webinar.
You can click on Preview to view your Webinar page that your audience will be able to access on your site.
What if I can't publish my Zoom Webinar or Meeting?
Buying a Zoom webinar from the site
Once your webinar is live, your audience can access the webinar page from your site and purchase it.
📝 To sell Zoom webinars, a payment provider (Stripe or PayPal) must also be connected.
Once your customers have purchased the Zoom webinar or meeting, they can join the webinar from the webinar page. Clicking on the Watch on Zoom will open an external link to join a Zoom webinar or Zoom meeting.
Adding your recording after the webinar has ended
Once you webinar has completed, you can upload the Zoom recording from Cloud recordings or from your computer directly into Podia. This replay video will be embedded on your webinar page once the webinar has ended.
Can I share a webinar directly with existing customers and members?
Yes, but it may not be necessary. You could simply share the Zoom signup or live link directly in the course contents, as a membership post, or email broadcast. If you want to "host" it on Podia then go through the same process and hide the webinar page from your site.
