Thrive Automator: Built For Developers

If you are a developer, or are working with a team that creates WordPress plugins and themes...

Or even if you create software and SaaS tools outside of the WordPress ecosystem, then—

We have some great news for you.

Imagine This:

Instead of juggling an unending backlog of integration requests from your customers that keep your development roadmap longer than the walk home from your work christmas party, imagine if you could create just one integration.

Yes, one.

One single integration that lets your users unlock a whole stack of 3rd party integrations at once.
The best part? It was easy. It was fast. All you had to do was follow some simple developer documentation, set up some new hooks, and register a few actions and triggers.
A couple of days of QA testing and, voila:

Your new integration now connects your software to a growing ecosystem of marketing-focused tools, used by over 20,000+ active business owners investing in growing their businesses online.

Your users can now connect your software to:

20+ email marketing services (like ActiveCampaign, Mailchimp, ConvertKit)

Their WordPress website (native WordPress hooks included)

Any other 3rd party tools that have also created an integration, and…

All the software included in Thrive Suite, our world-class website-building toolkit for online businesses.

Just with a few clicks.

API Driven and Developer Friendly

Thrive Automator is the latest WordPress plugin by Thrive Themes. This plugin is the new hub of Thrive Suite, allowing users to easily build and automate workflows that pass data between different apps, plugins and services.

Unlike other automation tools, Thrive Automator lives inside a user’s website, meaning it can see what is happening website-wide all at once. You can trigger automations when users log in, register on the website, fill out a form, complete a quiz, or well… anything.

Thrive Automator connects closely with all plugins in the Thrive ecosystem, but— here’s where you come in— it’s developer friendly.

3rd party developers, apps, plugins and external services can seamlessly integrate your tools to “speak” with Thrive Automator

And when you do? Your software will immediately be able to connect with every other service also integrated with Thrive Automator. That means minimal work for maximum reward.

Your users (and ours) can visually construct automations on their website, selecting triggers or actions created by your software and pairing it with any other service that shares the same data set.

Explore the Public Beta!

Thrive Automator has been freshly released as a public beta in August 2021, available to all active Thrive Suite customers. We are openly seeking feedback from users and developers just like you.

Please note that during this public beta, we may publish updates to Thrive Automator that may not be backwards compatible with your integration.

For this reason, we encourage you to try it out, experiment with our API, and share your feedback with us. Consider your own integration as a beta for testing purposes.

Did you encounter any difficulties registering a trigger? Do you have a specific use-case that you can’t serve with Thrive Automator yet?

Whatever developer feedback you have, we want to know about it.

When we close the public beta (which we estimate it will only take a few months), our API will be mature and you’ll be ready to publish and market your integration.

Oh, but there’s one more thing.

We’ll not only support your integrations… We’ll market them publicly to our audience too.

Our team is working on an App Library bundled with Thrive Automator, that allows your software to be listed and discoverable as a supported 3rd party. Users will be able to browse available integrations and learn about what your software brings to their website and business.

Thrive Automator will Continue to Grow

Over the coming months and during the public beta, we are preparing to add:

The App Library for browsing, listing and installing new integrations

Send email action, so your users can notify themselves or their visitors when website trigger conditions are met

Dynamic data, so your actions can adapt to dynamic triggers

Webhook actions, so you can trigger off-site services

More universal website triggers and actions

The WooCommerce Example

So, what does it look like to have your software integrated with Thrive Automator?

We can show you.

As we built Thrive Automator, our team reviewed the public API developer documentation from WooCommerce, the world’s most popular (and free) eCommerce platform and we decided to build an integration ourselves.

To do this, we identified valuable triggers and actions from the
WooCommerce API and, without much difficulty, we added them to Thrive Automator.

The result? If a user has WooCommerce installed on their website, they’ll see WooCommerce triggers available in the dropdown list.

When you create and publish your integration, Thrive Automator users will see new triggers and actions relevant to your software, provided they’ve installed a plugin on their website that contains your integration code.

Get Started!

We look forward to seeing how all the plugins in Thrive Suite, including Thrive Automator, can benefit your software business and help our mutual customers to build a better business.
