Zapier “Zap” integration with GetFiveStars

This UserGuide post shows you how to use Zapier and how to create a “Zap” in order to automatically pass customer information into GetFiveStars.

Note: The video and step-by-step guide below uses Quickbooks as an example. You can use any of the Web Apps available in Zapier.

Introduction:

Many customers have asked us for an efficient and easy way to import customers from other web services and online apps. Until now, you had to manually export your customers and import them into GetFiveStars, or you could build your own integration with our API.

Zapier was created to automate those type of tasks between online apps without the need of development teams and coding knowledge.

Quick Setup List

  1. Create a Zapier Account and a GetFiveStars Account (if you don’t have one yet)
  2. Create a Zap with your favorite Web App and GetFiveStars
  3. Turn your Zap on.
  4. Switch your GetFiveStars communication method to “Automatic”
  5. That’s it!

Step-by-Step Guide

The following example will create a new customer in GetFiveStars and sends out a feedback request email whenever a new invoice gets created in Quickbooks. You can of course choose a different Web App and you can set a different trigger other than invoice created.

Before you start:

Look under “Account -> Account Owner Details” to get your ClientID and PrivateKey needed for selected REST API calls..

– The API and Client Key is the same for all businesses in your GetFiveStars account.

  1. Log into Zapier and click on “Make a New Zap”

  4. Follow the onscreen instructions. The final screen should show “Test Successful”.
