Use Zapier to integrate an app with Brevo

62e7bf682988ded32f08ba76.png

Would you like to integrate an app with Brevo and automatically perform certain actions? An easy way to do it is to use one of the plugins or direct integrations available in our App Store.

If no integration is available or if the action you want to perform is not included in the integration, you can easily create a Zap through Zapier to connect your app with your Brevo account.

For example, you can create a Zap so that when you send an email campaign through Brevo (trigger), a new row with information about the campaign is added to a Google Spreadsheet (action).

Good to know

Before you start

  • Create or log into your Zapier account. 
  • Log into your Brevo account and retrieve your API v3 key. To learn how to retrieve your API key in Brevo, check our dedicated article about finding your API key.

Supported triggers and actions

❗️ Important
New Brevo triggers and actions have been made available in a new app version since September 29, 2023. If you are unable to see certain triggers or actions in your existing Zaps, you can update to the latest app version. However, note that in the new version, the Add or Update Contact trigger has been deprecated and needs to be replaced with the new Contact Added or Contact Updated trigger. While you can still use the previous app version, we recommend gradually updating each of your Zaps.
Supported triggers Supported actions

In Zapier, the trigger is the event that starts a Zap.

Brevo triggers

If you choose Brevo as your trigger app, the following triggers are supported:

  • New Campaign Status is triggered when the status of a Brevo campaign is updated. The statuses that are monitored are Suspended, Archive (Archived), Sent, Queued (Scheduled), Draft, and inProcess (Running).
  • New contact added to a specific list is triggered when a new contact is added to a list in Brevo. This trigger will not be fired for existing contact being moved to another list.
  • Email Delivered is triggered when an email campaign sent from Brevo is delivered to a recipient.
  • Email Opened is triggered when a recipient opens an email campaign sent from Brevo.
  • Link Clicked is triggered when a recipient clicks a link inside an email campaign sent from Brevo.
  • Contact Added is triggered when a contact is added to Brevo.
  • Contact Updated is triggered when a contact is updated in Brevo. Updates happen when a contact is moved to another list, or their contact data is updated.
  • Contact Unsubscribed is triggered when a Brevo contact unsubscribes from the list they belonged to.

Other triggers

Other triggers are available if you choose an app other than Brevo as a trigger, such as:

  • Gmail: New Attachment, New Label, New Email, New Thread, etc.
  • Google Drive: New File, New Folder, Updated File, etc.
  • Slack: New Public Message Posted Anywhere, New Channel, New Mention, etc.
