Make and Plaid integration

Hi Make Community…

I’m new to Make/workflow/etc…

I’m looking for a way to integrate Make with Plaid. I don’t see it in the dropdown list of supported modules.

I need to make a call to Plaid to fetch data (read only).

How can I do that?

Also - can I ask for a feature request or have Plaid as module, please?



Hi @DesertLotus,

Welcome to the community! I hope you will share and receive a lot of knowledge here.

Afaik, Plaid is not an existend App on the Make platform. But fear not, there are options for you. You can set up your custom flow with the HTTP module, to interact with the Plaid API:

This is perfect if you need to make a read-only call to Plaid. You’ll need to get your Plaid Client-ID and Client-secret from your dashboard.

You can place a request for new apps here, specifically for Plaid:

Alternatively, you can create (or outsource) a Custom App for Plaid. Partners like me can develop Custom Apps that you can use like any other App in Make.

Welcome to the Make community!

Make doesn’t have an integration for this service or module for this particular endpoint.

If the external service has a Developer API Reference/Documentation then you should be able to integrate the endpoints in Make using the app’s universal module (Make an API call) or generic HTTP “Make a request” module.

You can also suggest for it to be made in the Idea exchange. Don’t forget to search for it first, just in case someone already suggested it, so that you don’t end up creating a duplicate.

If you need assistance in setting up the app’s universal module, or the generic HTTP module, please provide additional information about what you have tried with regards to the external service’s Developer API Reference – how you are setting the connection up, a link to the endpoint are you trying to connect to, and what errors you are encountering.

You can also complete this brand new course/tutorial in the Make Academy on how to use external APIs — API calls with HTTP modules

Thank @Henk-Operative, I’ll try that, first! (Using the custom flow with HTPP).

If not, I’ll reach out, further, thanks for the advice!


Thank @sawliew! What is Make’s universal module? Sorry for the layman question… Are you referring to a webhook?

I’ll review the module on API calls with HTTP module.
