Guide: Using WordPress with Databox

Currently, there is not a direct Databox + WordPress integration available, but there are alternative ways to sync your WordPress data with Databox.

These alternatives utilize third-party integrations such as  Zapier, Integromat, or the Databox API.

Pro Tip: If you don't have the time or resources to set this up yourself, check out our services where we can build the custom integration for you. For additional information, feel free to connect with our team via chat.

HOW TO

How to use Zapier to sync WordPress data

Zapier is a trigger-based app, meaning you can have certain events (such as a new card being added) trigger certain actions (updating the relevant data and syncing with Databox) using Zaps. Because triggers initiate data syncs, historical data will not be available for metrics that are synced using Zapier. 

Learn more about the Zapier + Databox third-party integration here.

Whenever possible, it’s recommended that you use a Zap Template. This will save you time and will streamline the process of syncing WordPress data with Databox using Zapier. 

You can also create Zaps from scratch if a Zap Template isn’t available.

How to use Integromat to sync WordPress data

Integromat is a third-party integration that allows you to sync data between apps. Integromat has a long list of native integrations along with the ability to sync custom data via the API.

Whenever possible, it’s recommended that you use an Integromat Template. This will save you time and will streamline the process of syncing WordPress data with Databox using Integromat. 

If a Template isn’t available, you can sync additional WordPress with Databox using Integromat by setting it up from scratch.
