Can I use Zapier to populate an email field on a third party site?

Hi, I plan to start running Facebook ‘Lead ads’ and want to be able to pass the email address to a third party site so that the user then only has to click submit (once they’ve been redirected to the third party site). As most of my Facebook ad traffic is mobile, I’m finding I’m losing a certain amount of leads because of the extra hassle physically entering their email using the phone.  

Is this possible with Zapier and how would I go about it? Thanks in advance.

(Btw, Lead Ads enable you to create a lead capture form which is pre-populated by Facebook with user name and email and can be integrated with Zapier and numerous CRMs)

Depends on what the 3rd party site is and if the site supports prefilling data based on querystrings.


Most phones nowadays allow users to save their contact info for 1-tap filling into fields such as the email address.
