Introducing Zapier for Webshipper
Zapier is a global company that allows an end-user to integrate the web applications they use and love. Zapier is located in Sunnyvale, California, and employs more than 100 people in 24 countries.

Now there is a Webshipper application ready for Zapier, meaning that Webshipper users can automate their tasks and connect Webshipper to more than 2.000 apps or vise versa.
At the moment (23/07-2020), Webshipper has more than 30 native and third-party integrations, but with the release of Zapier the number has risen to more than 2.000. We appreciate that not all applications are relevant. Still, the world has opened up for endless integrations that allow for even more combinations and possibilities.
Still, not sure how Zapier and Webshipper can be used in real life?
The core functionality ion Zapier is to move a set of data from one system to another, process it, and send it back. Or maybe all you want is to send data from one system to another.
As I said, the possibilities are almost endless when it comes to Zapier!
Zapier is built around triggers and actions, making it possible to perform actions based on specific triggers. The triggers and activities are all different and independent of each app.
Webshipper integration has four triggers and two actions, which lets you pull or add data from Webshipper when specific actions are triggered.

Let me give you a quick example of how the integration can be used!
At the moment, Webshipper doesn't support BigCommerce e-commerce platform, but with Zapier, it does. BigCommerce has a trigger that allows for the order to be transferred to Webshipper. When an order is placed in BigCommerce, Zapier then creates the order or shipment in Webshipper.
But what about your favorite ERP-system, Magento or WooCommerce, or even Shopify. They all have Zapier integrations that can do the same, and much more.
Here are e few examples of how you can use Zapier and Webshipper together:
