Before we dive into this Zapier integration, make sure that you have:

  1. A Burst SMS account - Sign up for a free 14-day Burst SMS account
  2. A Zapier account - Sign up

Step 1 - Create a new Zap

After you log into Zapier, click on 'Make a Zap!' on your Zapier dashboard.

Step 2 - Choose the Trigger App

Find and select Burst SMS as the trigger app.

Next, change the 'Trigger Event field' to 'Delivery Report Received', and then click on the 'Continue' button below to proceed.

Step 2 - Connect Burst SMS to Zapier

If you haven't connected your Burst SMS account with Zapier, then it will ask you for your Burst SMS API Key and API Secret.

To retrieve your Burst SMS API Key and API Secret, log in, go to Settings and scroll down to the API Settings section.

Note: API Secret is like a password. You'll need to type in your own API Secret, then click the Update Profile button at the bottom of the page. 

Next, paste your API Key and API Secret in Zapier.

Step 3 - Set up Zapier Webhook URL in your Burst SMS Account Settings

Next, copy the Webhook URL that Zapier provides you.

Go to your Burst SMS Account Settings and paste it into the "DLR Callback URL" field. 

For 'DLR Callback Firing,' select 'All Messages'.

Follow the rest of the instructions to make sure that your account has successfully been added to Zapier.

Step 4 - Add Action "Filter by Zapier"

Click on the '+' symbol and add a new Action called "Filter by Zapier".

Next, change the fields below as follows:

Continue and save.

Step 5 - Add Burst SMS Action

Click on the '+' symbol again to add a new Action and select Burst SMS.

Change the Action Event to 'Add/Update Contact'.

Follow the steps until you get to 'Set up action' section. Here, select the 'Mobile Phone' field, and find the 'Mobile' variable. Once selected, it will appear as a rounded rectangle with '1. Mobile:[sample-number]' inside of it as seen below.

Next, you want to add your Burst SMS Global Opt-out List ID into the 'List' field as seen above. To get the ID, go to your Burst SMS account and click on Contacts and then your Global Opt-Out List.

Immediately, you will see your Global Opt-out List ID as seen below. Copy and paste it into Zapier.

Once you've tested the integration and you think it's ready to go, your final step is to turn Zap on.
