Want to automate important parts of your WooCommerce workflows? With these WooCommerce Zapier recipes, you’ll be able to automatically save new orders to Google Sheets, add customers to your CRM, receive notifications, and more.
In this article, we’re going to introduce you to eight WooCommerce and Zapier ‘recipes’ and tell you what you need to set them up.
Let’s get cooking!
A quick introduction to Zapier
We’ve talked about WordPress and Zapier integrations in the past, so you’re probably already familiar with the service. In a nutshell, Zapier enables you to link ‘apps’ or platforms using what they call recipes.
Zapier recipes are made up of two components: a trigger and an action. Typically, a trigger occurs on platform A, which causes an action on platform B.
For the rest of this article, we’re going to focus on WooCommerce and Zapier integrations. This means WooCommerce will be our platform A, and we’ll show you how Zapier enables you to connect it to a broad range of third-party services.
Eight WooCommerce Zapier integrations to improve your store
For each WooCommerce/Zapier integration on this list, we’ll link you to their official setup guide and break down the specific triggers and actions you want to look for. Let’s start with spreadsheets!
1. Save WooCommerce orders to Google Sheets

- Trigger: New order
- Action: Create spreadsheet row

In most cases, when you make a sale, you already ask customers for their contact information. This recipe takes the data and uses it to generate a new HubSpot contact. If you’re already using HubSpot as your CRM of choice, it’s a lifesaver.
- Trigger: New order
- Action: Add contact to list (on HubSpot)

Many times when making a purchase, you’ll be asked if you want to join a website’s email list too. Since there’s already a level of trust, you’re more likely to say “Yes,” so it’s a sure-fire winning strategy.
