I have a white-labeled platform that is not one of the apps/modules that Make already supports (neither is the original platform I’m white labeling from). I need to integrate that platform with Chargebee, which I’d like to use for subscription management.
I also need to set up triggers from my platform so that when events happen, such as when a new trial user signs up, an automated welcome message is sent.
The problem I’m running into is that my wl platform doesn’t have defined webhooks for the events I’d like to use. There is an API/SDK I have access to.
I’d like to talk through this with a Make Pro and understand my options for connecting this platform and, if it can be done with Make, get a quote for the services.
Hello, My name is Alex Sirota and I am the founder of NewPath Consulting. We are a 4-year old Make.com partner. We offer a one hour video call where we explain and show how Make can help your organization. We even build some scenarios and share them with you so get more value than a usual exploratory discussion. Book some time with me at Make.com Hero - NewPath Consulting I look forward to talking to you and your team should they join us.
Understood. In my experience a “quick 15 minute conversation” will not cover the myriad of options and potential approaches you may want to take to your very good question.
There are many ways to call APIs with or without an existing app:
Make API module in an app that has this module
HTTP call with various authentication methods
Building an app from scratch for private
Building an app from scratch for public use
These go in increasing order of complexity. But they ALL come with a huge caveat:
You must understand the API you are hitting and how it functions, its options and quirks. Without this knowledge you will be banging your head against the wall for days and weeks, finally giving up in frustration…
