Not only can you add contacts to your database with the help of Unisender tools, but you can also use other services to automatically send contacts to UniSender. Choose any service that allows sending data through Zapier.
Zapier is a no-code tool that connects applications together and helps you automate repetitive steps of your workflow. Take for example: a user fills out a form or takes a quiz on your website, shares their contact details, and the user's contact card immediately appears in UniSender.
In this article, we cover how you can integrate Zapier with UniSender.
If you don't have an account in Zapier yet, start with creating one. In the left field, choose the service you use to collect contact data. In the right field, choose UniSender — the service you want to add the contacts to.
Next, select Subscribe Contact. This is the action you want UniSender to perform when someone fills out your form.
Click Use Zap to proceed to setting up the integration with the service you use to collect data.
Give your integration a name. Under Choose Account in the UniSender interface, sign in to the service you use to collect contact data. Zapier will guide you step-by-step through all stages of the integration process.
After you’ve configured the Zapier integration with the service you use to collect contact data, click Continue to start setting up the integration with UniSender.
Link your accounts
Click Add a New Account and choose the UniSender account you want to start adding contacts to.
Once you've chosen an account, you’ll see a field where you’ll need to enter the API-key for the account.
To get the API key, log in to UniSender. Click on the account name at the top right corner of the screen and choose Account settings.
On the Settings page, click on the Integration and API tab. You'll need the API access key. Click Show full.
For security purposes, UniSender will ask you to enter the password to your account. Enter the password and hit Send.
Copy the API key.
Go to the Zapier integration page and paste the key. Click Next.
You will see the integration appear in the drop-down list in Zapier. Choose the integration and click Continue.
Set up subscription actions and the data to add
- Set up the action for Zapier to perform when someone subscribes to your list. You can choose to send a double opt-in email, but in this case this won’t be necessary, as UniSender will automatically send a subscription confirmation email to new subscribers.
- In the email field, select the associated field from the service you use to collect data. The data entered in this field will be sent to UniSender as an email address of the new contact.
All available data associated with the email address will be added to the contact card in UniSender.
Set up contact lists
The final step is setting up the list to collect contacts to. You can add contacts to any of your existing lists or create a new list specifically for the integration.
Zapier will display all contact lists from your UniSender account. Select the list you want to use from the drop-down menu or type in the list name in the search field.
If you’re creating a contact list in UniSender and setting up Zapier at the same time, Zapier might be unable to pull the list. To update the data, use the Refresh Fields button. This button works for any field in Zapier.
After you set up all the fields you need, send a test contact to UniSender using your new Zapier integration. To do this, click Test and Continue.
All the steps are completed successfully. All that’s left is to turn on your integration by toggling the button at the bottom of the screen.
The integration should now be active in your Zapier account.
Great job! You’ve integrated Zapier with UniSender and the service you use to record contact data. The data will automatically appear in your UniSender account and you’ll be able to send automated welcome emails to new subscribers.
