15 Zapier WooCommerce Integrations That Will Streamline Your Online Business
You have just set up your WooCommerce store, and you are ready to serve your customers.
While building up an online shop was easy, one thing starts to bother you: too much of your time goes to boring and repetitive everyday tasks. You would rather spend this time elsewhere, like on developing and marketing your business.
You can naturally hire a virtual assistant for tedious tasks, but there is an easier option: the Zapier platform.
Zapier is an automation framework built for creating workflows between applications. These workflows, also known as Zaps, are based on the trigger/action principle:
- A trigger. A trigger is an event that occurs in an application. For instance, you receive an email to your Gmail inbox.
- An action. Action is the result that occurs after the trigger executes. For instance, once you have received an email in Gmail, you get a notification about the message in Slack.
You can even add more than one action to your triggers. For instance, a new message in Slack can create a new task in Todoist, which makes a note in EverNote.
Connecting WooCommerce with Zapier: The Prerequisites
Before you can hook up WooCommerce with Zapier, make sure to do these two steps:
- Register to Zapier.
- Purchase and download the premium WooCommerce Zapier plugin. This plugin is mandatory if you want to connect WooCommerce and Zapier.

Slack is an instant messaging application for organizations and individuals. The application reduces your email load since you can replace shorter messages with Slack messages.

You can also create a group channel in Slack so that your whole team gets a notification after a new order.
6. Create Trello cards from new WooCommerce orders
Trello is a browser-based project/task management system. The app contains boards (projects), which can include lists (project list). Within a list, you can have cards (individual project tasks).
With the WooCommerce/Trello Zap, you can make these two systems talk to each other. As soon as the new order comes in, the automation creates a new card in Trello.
This type of automation helps provide excellent customer service and fast fulfillment, especially if you keep track of orders in the Trello environment.

With this WooCommerce/Excel integration, you can automate this process and say goodbye to time-consuming work.
8. Add new WooCommerce orders to GoToWebinar as registrants
Training the customer to use the product they just bought is a great way to strengthen the customer relationship.
With this recipe, every time a new WooCommerce order occurs, the customer is added to the GoToWebinar registrant’s list.
So instead of copying registrant information manually between systems, you can have more time planning effective training instead.
9. Pin new WooCommerce products to a Pinterest board
Pinterest is a popular social media platform with hundreds of millions of monthly users. Its core idea is to save and share images on its platform.
You create a “bookmark” when you save an image on Pinterest. These bookmarks are also known as Pins. You can save Pins under various boards (or categories).
This recipe will automatically create a Pin as soon as you add a new product to your WooCommerce store.
With this automation, you can speed up social media marketing on one of the biggest social media platforms.
10. Create Google Contacts from new orders in WooCommerce

So stop keeping manual track of your customer contact information in Google Contacts, and let the automation handle it for you.

SMS messaging is not a new kid in the block in the instant messaging space. Still, it’s an efficient way to deliver time-sensitive information to your phone.
With this recipe, you can send your customer an SMS message about the order status changes in your WooCommerce store. As long as your customer has a signal in his/her phone, he/she can receive information about their order.
12. Create Acuity Scheduling coupon codes for new WooCommerce order
Want to impress your customers and give them a discount code on your next product consultation?
As soon as an order occurs in WooCommerce, the Zap creates a coupon code your customers use in the Acuity Scheduling application.
This automation is also an example of putting multiple applications together. In this case, you can combine WooCommerce, Acuity Scheduling, and Gmail.
13. Post new WooCommerce products to your Facebook Page
Zapier supports connecting WooCommerce with various social media outlets, and Facebook is one of them.
As soon as you add a new product to the WooCommerce store, this recipe also adds it to the company’s Facebook page.
Social media marketing can be laborious, but this automation takes part of the workload off.
14. Add new paying WooCommerce customers to Bonjoro to-do lists
How often do you get a personalized thank you for buying a product in an online store? Not too often, I think.
When you integrate WooCommerce with Bonjoro, you can strengthen your customer relationship with personalized video messages, thanking your customer for the purchase.
As soon as a customer makes an order in your WooCommerce store, the recipe creates an item to Bonjoro’s task list. You can then record the video greeting using the Bonjoro platform.
15. Create Trustpilot invitations from new WooCommerce orders
Customer feedback is crucial for improving your service or product. While some customer feedback can be private, some can be public.
One way to see what others openly think about a company is by using TrustPilot, a consumer review website about businesses worldwide.
The concept behind the WooCommerce and Trustpilot integration is simple. As soon as someone makes an order in your WooCommerce store, the customer gets an invite to give your company feedback on Trustpilot.
The thought of getting public feedback can be scary, but often, it’s also a great way to market your company, especially if a reviewer gives you a good rating.
