A common question we receive from WooCommerce Zapier users is:

Which Trigger Rule should I choose when setting up my Zap?

Before answering that question, let’s answer another question:

What is a Trigger Rule?

A Trigger Rule in a WooCommerce Zap specifies when WooCommerce should send your WooCommerce data to Zapier.

For example, when sending WooCommerce Order data to Zapier, you have the following choices:

WooCommerce Zapier Order Trigger Rules

Which Trigger Rule Should I Use in My Zap?

The answer is: it depends on your use case.

In the case of sending Order data to Zapier, you may wish to send an order whenever an order is paid for. Or you may wish to send orders to Zapier whenever they change status.

There’s plenty of choices when it comes to Trigger Rules, so we have recently published a brand new WooCommerce Zapier Trigger Rules documentation chapter to help you choose. We’ve included some common workflows and caveats as well.
