Zapier Webhook Integration & Rules

Last updated 05/15/2024

The Zapier Webhook integration & rules allow you to connect to a Zap, using a Webhook as the Zap trigger. Bread & Butter also sends all of the user’s information, allowing you almost unlimited flexibility with your Zap. A few real world examples are:

  • When a new user authenticates, send their user information to your Sales account via Gmail
  • When a user visits a specific page, and their referrer is Google, add them as a lead in Salesforce
  • If a user reads a specific whitepaper, and they are from the US, add or update their contact in ActiveCampaign

Please note: a Premium membership with Zapier is required for Webhooks.
