Using Zapier you can connect and sync contact data between Karbon and more than 1,500 other apps connected to Zapier.

Karbon's integration with Zapier is currently in early access. You can find it in the Zapier app directory here.

How Zapier works

Zapier provides Triggers and Actions for each app that it supports, including Karbon.

A Zap combines a trigger from one app with an Action in another. Whenever the trigger occurs, Zapier automatically completes the action for you.

If you're new to Zapier, you can learn more in their Getting Started Guide.

4. Connect your Karbon account

Clicking Connect your account will open a new window asking you to provide your Karbon API key. 

You can find your API key in your Karbon account at Settings > Connected Apps > Zapier (it's a long code made up of letters and numbers).
