Ninja Forms Webhooks
Are you dissatisfied with the fact that WordPress does not provide an official integration or application that connects it to your preferred service? You don’t have enough time to create and maintain the custom code that connects your WordPress website to that service, do you? Are you fed up with having to pay for an integration that is administered by a third party?
Webhooks are the answer that will ultimately allow you to bridge that gap for yourself. Numerous services will permit interaction by means of webhooks by making use of the API provided by those services. Webhooks are the solution to your problem as long as the service you want to connect with supports that form of integration.
No more charges on a regular basis. There will be no more code maintenance for a bespoke solution. Webhooks allow you to connect the WordPress pages you’re using to the service you require right now.
Send WordPress forms data to any external URL using a simple GET or POST request
Webhooks are incredibly easy to implement into your website. Installing and activating the add-on is all that is required, after which any of your WordPress pages can have a Webhooks action added to them.
Following the selection of the mode of data transmission, you will be prompted to input the remote URL of the service you wish to integrate with within the action. Get and Post requests are the only ones that are supported right now.
The material that is being sent can be defined by using the args. These are exceedingly easy to generate within the action, and do not call for any additional coding at any point. In this space, the API key for the service, along with the name that the service anticipates using for the API key, should be inputted as a Value. (Key).
Using the merge tag system provided by Ninja Forms, you can easily transfer the data of each individual field to be sent as an argument. It’s as simple as pointing and clicking!
Get more out of every integration
A fantastic and straightforward approach for many people is to integrate using a third-party service such as Zapier. Unfortunately, it can become restrictive and limiting for those who want to develop on top of an integration.
You will have more flexibility to innovate if you integrate Webhooks into your system. Listening to Webhooks and building additional functionality on top of them is a reasonably straightforward process for developers. You have the capability at your disposal to create individualised solutions based on the information that is submitted through your WordPress forms.
