How to integrate Zapier and Shipbob:
ShipBob integrates with Zapier, which is a great tool for automating many daily tasks. Using the intuitive user interface, you can easily integrate a lot of different applications together (without being a computer programmer!).
For example, if you would like to be notified when a package delivery fails, instead of logging into ShipBob and checking the tracking updates everyday, you can trigger Zapier to send an email when the package delivery results in an exception.
If you would like to get a slack notification when the inventory count goes below the reorder point- this is also now possible using the ShipBob Zapier integration!
The following steps briefly describe how to set up your first Zap!
