Webhooks By Connect is an app created by Jason Seats, that allows users to integrate their Shopify, Amazon, and Etsy stores with the messaging platforms Facebook Messenger, Twitter, and text messaging. This app is perfect for e-commerce stores because it allows businesses to send real-time notifications about sales, inventory changes, and new products. This app will allow businesses to interact with their customers in ways they never thought possible.
To integrate Vend and Webhooks By Connect, you must first install Webhooks By Connect into your Vend account. Once you have installed the app, in the settings of the app there is an option for integration with Vend. Click on “Vend” and a pop up window will appear with some information about installing the integration. Clicking “Install” will initiate the installation process. You will need to navigate back to the app settings and click on “Vend” once again. This time you will see a notice that the integration has been installed. Click on “Done” and you are all set!
The first thing you want to do is create a “Hook” as they are called in Webhooks By Connect. Hooks are words that you can use to trigger notifications on the messaging apps like Facebook Messenger or Twitter. For example, if you have a hook called “LowStock” and set it’s value to be 10 then whenever the number of items on hand drops below 10 a message will be sent to your customers informing them of this fact.
To create a hook first go to the app settings and click on “Hooks” in the left sidebar. There will be two options for creating hooks; create a new hook or view your hooks. Click on “New Hook” and a pop up window will appear asking for details about your hook. First give your hook a name (this is what will be used on Facebook Messenger. Then enter a description along with a link to help customers find the hook on Facebook Messenger. Next choose the messaging platform (Facebook Messenger, Twitter, or Text Message. Then enter your hook value (the number of items that triggers a notification on Facebook Messenger. For testing purposes you can leave this number at 1 but once you are ready to go live with Webhooks By Connect, you will want to change this value to something more appropriate like 10 or 100 (depending on how many items you sell. Scrpl down and click “Add Hook”. You have successfully created a hook! Now under “Active Hooks” you will see your created hook.
Now that we have created a hook we need to test it out. To do this go back into the app settings by clicking on “Settings” in the left sidebar. On the right side of the screen there is a section labeled “Test Your Hooks”. Time to test out our LowStock hook! We can test out different hooks by entering different numbers into the boxes under “Number Of Items” or by using the slider. For this example we are going to use the slider method since we are going for accuracy and not speed. Slide the slider to the left until it reads 1 which means that you should only have 1 item in stock. If everything is working correctly then after sliding the slider you should receive a message saying that our LowStock hook has triggered an alert for us! The message should look something like this:
