How to post data to my API without building custom app?

Hey guys, 

I'm new here although I been using Zapier in the past, it were always very simple automations which were based on available apps by a default. 

Today I have such a challenge to create an integration with my own app. I think that I can use Zapier in a few different ways, depending on what I need to do. But in this case I would like to do a Zap by posting data through our API.

To do so, do I need to go through developers platform and publish my app as I was going to offer a possibility to integrate with my app for the others even, if it's not my plan at the moment? I can imagine that if I do so and my app will be available in Zapier's marketplace I'll be able to use it for my own needs.

Is there perhaps a different way, to achieve the same result without going through developers platform? Is this possible to choose while building Zap an action 'POST to my API'? Could you please direct me to where I can discover more about this subject?

Have a good day everyone

Hi @Kuba from HiPets,

 

That is absolutely possible and you can do this 2 different ways:

  1. Using ‘Webhook by Zapier” you can easily make API calls. Read more here: https://zapier.com/page/webhooks/ and here: https://zapier.com/help/create/code-webhooks/send-webhooks-in-zaps
  2. Using “Code Step action” you can use python/Javascript to make API calls to your platform. Read more here: https://zapier.com/help/create/code-webhooks/python-code-examples-in-zaps#step-8
