We recently moved to StarChapter as our webhost, which comes with an events payment and registration framework.  How can I create a custom zap from scratch that can tap into the StarChapter account so that new event registrants trigger a ZAP?

@SMPS_LA Since Zapier does not have an out-of-the-box with Zapier, you have several options.  This is all assumming StarChapter has an API library.  

  1. Find the StarChapter API documentation
  2. You can use the Zapier Webhook  (https://zapier.com/page/webhooks/)
  3. Use the Zapier Visual Builder (https://www.udemy.com/course/zapier-visual-builder/)
  4. Hire a Zapier Expert to build the Zap for you (https://integration.mercology.net/)
  5. Both of these require an understanding of APIs and how to do HTTP Requests and work with JSON in HTTP Responses.

    Let me know if you have other questions.

Just chatted with StarChapter support...”We are a proprietary software. API needs to be discussed on a case by case basis with our development team.“

Thanks so much for looking into this, @David Mercer !  I’m assuming that from StarChapter’s response that I’m supposed to ask them about API now?  I only have a vague understanding of those things -- is there any “layman’s terms” sort of documentation for how/what I’m supposed to be looking for when I start asking about API?

 

Thanks!
