This knowledge base article relates to the WS Form Zapier add-on. Included with the Freelance & Agency editions or buy separately for the personal edition.

The Zapier WS Form add-on allows you to integrate form submissions with thousands  of apps.


The WS Form Zapier plugin is installed in the same way as installing the WS Form PRO plugin.

Once installed you will need to activate the license for the plugin. When you purchase the Zapier plugin, you will be given a license key. If you have lost your license key(s), click here.

To activate your license key:

  1. Click ‘WS Form’ in the WordPress administration menu.
  2. Click ‘Settings’.
  3. Click the ‘Zapier’ tab at the top of the page.
  4. Enter your license key.
  5. Click the ‘Activate’ button.

If your license key fails to activate, please ensure you are using the correct license key and not your WS Form PRO license key.

Note: You will require one published form and at least one submission in order to add your zap.

Note: The WordPress REST API must be enabled and accessible to Zapier in order for this add-on to work. Zapier pulls data from sources and therefore it must have access to your website.

Creating A Zap

The WS Form Zap is in beta, which means it is free to download! To create a WS Form zap:

  1. If you don’t already have a Zapier account, create one here.
  2. Click here to install the WS Form zap to your account. After accepting it will take you back to Zapier.
  3. In Zapier click the ‘Make Zap’ button.
  4. Click the WS Form app icon. If the icon is not visible, search for ‘WS Form’.
  5. The ‘New Submission’ trigger will be selected by default. Click ‘Save + Continue.’
  6. Next you need to connect Zapier to your WS Form PRO plugin. Click ‘Connect an Account’.
  7. Enter the API URL and API Key from your Zapier settings form in WS Form PRO:
    1. Click ‘WS Form’ in the WordPress administration menu.
    2. Click ‘Settings.’
    3. Click the ‘Zapier’ tab at the top of the page.
    4. Copy and paste the API URL and API Key into the Zapier dialog.
  8. Click ‘Yes, Continue.’
  9. Test the connect to WS Form PRO by clicking the ‘Test’ button.
  10. Select the published form you want to trigger the zap with.
  11. Zapier will then download sample submission records for that form, or you can skip that step and use the sample form submission. We recommend submitting a real form and then using that data for the next steps with Zapier.
  12. Create one or more actions for your zap, and you’re done!
