What's Zapier and how do I use it?

Zapier lets you connect apps you use everyday with Podia and automate workflows. With over 750+ apps in their App Directory, chances are you’ll be able to connect just about anything you use with Podia.

What are some examples?

  • Get an SMS whenever you land a sale

  • Store new signups in Trello or Google Sheets

  • Tweet out in joy when a new sale hits

  • Send a customer to your favorite email marketing app like Drip, MailChimp and others
