With Zapier, you build simple automations called Zaps that work in the background and automate your work. For example, you can create a Zap that automatically subscribes new Zoom Webinars registrants to a MailChimp list, or create a Zap that registers a contact for a Zoom Webinars whenever a form is completed or a PayPal purchase is completed.
Every Zap has a trigger app, that kicks off the automation and causes an action to happen in another app. Zapier is the connection between these apps and allows you to connect and automate the tools you use to run your business.

The following will go over a quick example of how to configure Zoom on Zapier.
You can use Zapier to automatically register participants for a webinar when they sign up via another app, like a form or an email list. For example, if you're collecting sign-ups for a webinar via a form or a calendar invite, you can build automation (a Zap) that watches for new signups in your form and registers that contact for a webinar automatically. That way, you don't have to manually add webinar registrants by hand.
Here are some of the ways Zoom users are automating their webinar workflows with Zapier.
If you are running a paid webinar, you can use Zapier to help register paid attendees to your webinar automatically. To do this, you'll need:
Zapier works in the background, connecting your payment processing app to Zoom automatically. The trigger event in Zapier will be a new order or payment from your payment collection app. For example, the "New Order" trigger in Eventbrite or the "Successful Sale" Trigger in PayPal. That means that every time a successful order is captured, Zapier will kick off the automated workflow.
Then, you'll set an Action event to "Create Registrant" in Zoom. By clicking "Use this Zap" below, you'll be guided through the setup of this workflow step-by-step.
