Possible to make a GET request and convert it to XML to import via WP All Import every 3 hours?

Our clients use a dealer management system to load and manage used cars. The platform is moving away from XML and using API’s. We import vehicle data from the current XML via WP All Import and it maps it to the fields used on the WordPRess site using the Motors Theme.

 

I can setup a GET on a schedule but I need it to convert the API into an XML to import into WP All Import - or GET the API data and make it live on a URL I can access through WP All Import.

 

Is this at all possible?

Hi @Murowave 

App APIs can be used in Zaps with the Webhooks app as a Zap trigger or action: https://zapier.com/apps/webhook/integrations#triggers-and-actions

Thanks Troy!

I was hoping to find possible instructions on how to do it.

When using app APIs that is considered an advanced approach so it’s unlikely there will be step by step instructions for how to configure this in a Zap.

You’ll have to default to the API documentation for guidance.
