To do so, you need to log into your Zapier account or create a free account.
In your account click the black + button in the upper left corner.
This will open a new setup page where you can name your Zap. Within the Choose App & Event search box, type WPForms.

Now connect Zapier to WPForms on your WordPress website by clicking the Sign in to WPForms button.
An overlay will appear asking you to add your API Key. Copy and paste the key and then fill out the website field with your website. Be sure to include the forward slash.
Then, click the yes, continue button.
Now, that your site is connected, Zapier will then prompt you to choose which account to use for your Zap. From the dropdown menu, select site and click Continue.
Next, you’ll see a Customize Form Entry step. Select the form you’d like to use and click Continue.
Zapier will then bring you to the Find Data step, which will give you a chance to pull in sample entries to test your connection.
To feel confident that the integration is fully connected, you can select either the Test & Continue or the Test & Review button before continuing.
Zapier will walk you through steps to pass form data to your chosen service.
