How Flodesk integrates with E-Commerce
If you manage a Shopify website or “Buy Button” account on your website then you are in luck. Flodesk has builtin capabilities with Shopify that allows users to connect a Shopify store and seamlessly integrate these two platforms together.
If you are using WooCommerce on your website, then there isn’t a built-in way to connect your e-commerce store with Flodesk. But don’t stress, with the help of Zapier you can link your WooCommerce store to Flodesk with ease.

How Zapier works with WooCommerce
WooCommerce and Flodesk are two great tools but currently there isn’t a built-in integration to help these two platforms communicate and work together.
When a built-in integration doesn’t exist, Zapier is a tool you can use to connect applications and create automated workflows and actions.
As mentioned above, Zapier is free to use on the basic account BUT if you want to integrate with your WooCommerce store with Flodesk then you will need to purchase the official Zapier for WooCommerce plugin. At $59/year the Zapier for WooCommerce plugin is not expensive but it is an added cost to consider.
Using the free Zapier account you can connect your WooCommerce store and Flodesk app and begin creating “zaps” or automation sequences to accomplish your email marketing goals.
The bottomline: Yes, Flodesk works with WooCommerce
If you manage a WordPress site with WooCommerce you can use Flodesk as your email marking program but you will need Zapier to help make these two apps communicate effectively.
