WooCommerce Zapier is compatible with WordPress 3.7

WordPress 3.7 About Screen

The WordPress 3.7 About Screen

With the imminent release of WordPress 3.7, we are happy to report that the WooCommerce Zapier WordPress plugin is fully compatible with WordPress 3.7.

We tested the latest version of the WooCommerce Zapier plugin (version 1.1) with the latest version of WooCommerce (version 2.0.18), and the latest WordPress 3.7.

See the System Requirements section of the documentation for more details.

We hope you’re enjoying automating you WooCommerce store!

Update 25 October 2013: WordPress 3.7 has now been released, so this post has been updated to reflect that.

Version 1.1 released – compatibility with Sequential Order Numbers Pro & Checkout Field Editor plugins, and more!

It’s been just over a month since the WooCommerce Zapier plugin was released, and we’ve been lucky enough to receive some great feedback and suggestions from users.

We’ve listened closely to the feedback, and version 1.1 of the WooCommerce Zapier plugin has just been released, containing some nice new features and enhancements that were suggested by our users:

WooCommerce Checkout Field Editor support

Zapier Custom Fields Example

Zapier Custom Fields Example

Any additional checkout fields added to your store by the WooCommerce Checkout Field Editor plugin will now be sent to Zapier, allowing you to use your custom checkout fields in your Zaps!

For example, you could add How did you find out about us? or a Yes, I wish to join your mailing list checkbox to your WooCommerce checkout screen, and that data will be available for use in Zapier zaps.

This becomes even more powerful when combined with Zapier filters – you could add a Subscribe to our mailing list? checkbox to your WooCommerce checkout page, and then use Zapier to only subscribe your customers to your MailChimp or Campaign Monitor mailing list if they opt-in (tick the box) during checkout.

We have documented this approach here to help get you started.

Sequential Order Numbers Pro support

If using the Sequential Order Numbers Pro plugin to customise your store’s order numbers, you can now use the new number data field in Zapier.

The original WooCommerce order ID is still available in the id field.

See the documentation for full details.

New Country Name Fields

Zapier Country Example

In addition to sending the customer’s country code (2 letter code), the plugin now sends the full country name via the new billing_country_name and billing_country_name data fields.

This provides ultimate flexibility, with both the 2-letter country codes and full country names being sent to Zapier.

See the documentation for full details.

4 New WordPress Filters

Zapier Filter Example

WooCommerce Zapier WordPress Filter

Some users have requested the ability to customise the order and customer data sent to Zapier, so we’ve added 4 new WordPress filters to the plugin itself.

The new filters are named wc_zapier_data and wc_zapier_data_json, as well as two other dynamically named filters.

These filters can be used by other WordPress plugins or code to override or customize the order and customer data that is sent to Zapier.

See line 179 – 253 of the includes/WC_Zapier_Trigger.php file for documentation of these new filters.

Order Cancellation Event Handling

Zapier Order Cancelled Example

Zapier Order Cancelled Example

Previous versions of the plugin handled scenarios where the store administrator cancelled an order, but it didn’t handle scenarios where the customer elected to cancel their order.

In version 1.1 of the plugin, order cancellations are now handled correctly when the customer elects to cancel their order during the checkout/payment process.

And more!

See the full changelog for details of the other changes in this release.

Update today!

The latest plugin version can be downloaded via your WordPress dashboard, or via the WooThemes.com my account page.

WooCommerce & Zapier integration recommended by Chris Lema

Chris Lema's Infusionsoft WordPress Integration article

Chris Lema’s Infusionsoft WordPress Integration article

Chris Lema has recently written about integrating InfusionSoft with a WordPress website, and one of his suggestions was to use Zapier to integrate your WooCommerce store with MailChimp, TaskRabbit, or Zendesk:

So say you have a WooCommerce site. You buy the Zapier Extension and every time a buyer makes a purchase, you can use that order as a trigger to place them into a MailChimp list (for post-purchase follow up).

You can also use Zapier to put a new task in TaskRabbit, so your virtual assistant can physically mail them a gift.

Want to use Zapier to also create a new user / organization in your Zendesk account? Done.

Chris’ article highlights the power and flexibility available to you when using Zapier and WooCommerce together.

In addition to these 3 services, you can also integrate WooCommerce with 238 other services.

We’ve also created an in the news page, where you can see a list of sites that have mentioned the WooCommerce Zapier integration plugin.

Using Filters with WooCommerce and Zapier

Add a Zapier Filter

Add a Zapier Filter

When integrating WooCommerce with Zapier, a powerful tool at your disposal is filters.

Filters let you constrain Zap activity based on specific data criteria.

For example, using a filter you could configure your Zap to:

  • act on orders shipped to the USA
  • act on orders with a status of refunded
  • act on orders for a specific product or product category
  • act on orders that exceed $500

To help get you started, we’ve created a detailed article on Using Filters with WooCommerce and Zapier.

We hope you find it useful!

WooCommerce Zapier Integration – 2 weeks since launch!

The WooCommerce Zapier integration plugin has received a fantastic response since its launch almost two weeks ago.

In this period, we’ve seen:

So thanks to everyone for their support!

Some statistics

The table below shows that the New Order trigger is the most popular – more than 2/3 of all zaps are using this trigger.

Zap Trigger Breakdown Table

The New Customer trigger is the next most popular, followed by the more advanced New Order Status Change trigger.

We expected New Order to be the most popular trigger event (no surprises there), but we also thought the New Order Status Change trigger would be quite popular.

A Walk Through showing WordPress / Zapier Integration

A new walk through has been published by WP Beginner, stepping through the process of integrating Gravity Forms with a Google Docs spreadsheet:

How To Integrate Gravity Forms With Everything Using Zaper

This is a really detailed walk through. The Gravity Forms extensions uses the same webhook integration method that the WooCommerce extensions uses, so the whole process is very similar.

Now, just need to find some time to produce some nice video walk throughs for some of the WooCommerce integrations.
