Zoho Books - Zapier Integration

What is Zapier? How does the integration help?

Zapier is a web-based service, which helps you automate processes between two different apps.

For example, here’s a scenario. You wish to add a new contact in Zoho Books, whenever a new customer is added in your Magento account, but you’re already juggling a lot of things.

With the Zoho Books - Zapier integration, you can create a Zap between Magento and Zoho Books. All you have to do is set up the trigger and the action, and Zapier does the rest for you. This will happen everytime a new customer is added in Magento.

This is just one of the endless scenarios made possible by the integration, so that you can focus on other pressing tasks.

Here’s a quick list of the things you will be learning in this document:
