We’re happy to announce our new beta app for Zapier that allows you to pass your DPD sales data to the 500+ apps that Zapier supports. Zapier is a 3rd party service that serves as a “middleman” and connects web apps using an easy point and click interface. Zapier has both free and paid plans based on the number of integrations you set up and the frequency that they’re checked for updates.
Because this is a new app and in beta you’ll need to follow the link below to add the DPD app to your Zapier account:
What can you do with Zapier and DPD?
Zapier supports over 500 popular CRM, Accounting, communication, and task management tools. You can pass your customer and sales data to any one of these apps using an easy point and click interface, harnessing the power of the DPD API without having to write a single line of code.
You can pass your customer data to popular CRM apps like Salesforce, Infusionsoft, or Highrise.
You can pass your sales data to accounting apps like Quickbooks Online, Xero, or Freshbooks.
Send your customers contact info to email marketing services such as Unbounce, Mad Mimi, or even Gmail.
You can even use built in Zapier tools like Webhooks, SMS, and RSS to build custom notifications and connect to your own custom apps on your website.
Setting up Zapier with DPD
First, add the DPD beta app to your Zapier account by following this invite link.
Once you’ve added it, you can use it as a trigger app to create new zaps that connect to 3rd party services.
After you select the DPD app as your trigger you’ll need to connect to DPD using the API connection info in your vendor profile. To get your API connection info log in to your DPD vendor account, go to the user menu in the top right of the page, and select vendor profile. Your API credentials are at the bottom of the page.
From there you can select which DPD store’s sales data you want this zap to use, select which customer or purchase fields will be passed, and then select which 3rd party app you want to connect the data to. Its all point-and-click and no programming knowledge is required.
We welcome your feedback on the new Zapier support for DPD. We’re pretty excited because it lets you connect your DPD account to hundreds of external apps and we hope you are too!
