Request to add a new app to Zapier

tutorial
Last updated:

One of the most common feature requests Zapier gets is for new apps to be added. You can see a list of all the supported apps in our App Directory here. There are three ways to request to add a new app to Zapier: via the app developers themselves, one of Zapier's Trusted App Developers, or the Developer Platform.

Heads Up

For an app to be added to Zapier, it must have an API that is REST or XML-RPC-based.


1. App developers

This is the most common way new apps are added to Zapier. The majority of new apps connected to Zapier are built and maintained by the app developers themselves using our Developer Platform.

It's always best to reach out to the app developers themselves to see if they've already started the process of connecting their app to Zapier, or if it's on their roadmap.

One way you can request an app is by finding an upcoming app in the app directory and adding your request.

2. Zapier Trusted App Developers

If user demand is strong enough, but the app in question doesn't have the engineering time or resources to devote to connecting their app to Zapier, they can contract with one of our Zapier Trusted App Developers to build a Zapier integration for them. Apps built by Zapier Trusted App Developers are on equal footing with every other app when they are globally activated.


3. Zapier's Developer Platform

The Zapier Developer Platform is free for anyone to use to connect an app to Zapier, and is self-serve from creation to deployment. For simple apps with easy APIs, you might not even have to code anything. While apps connected to Zapier without the official support of the app developer cannot be made public in our App Directory, they can be used internally by you and your teammates.

If an app is not yet supported, there are several workarounds that may allow you to accomplish your goals.
