    Imagine that there are two companies who want to trade with each other. One is Chinese and the other is Russian, how would they communicate?

    Yes! You guessed it right, with the help of an intermediary who knows both languages and can translate easily.

    Webhooks work in a similar way, acting as communicators between two applications. They automatically send data between unsupported applications, bridging the gap and facilitating seamless communication. Just like a skilled translator, webhooks enable apps to understand and interact with each other, even if they don’t natively support the same language or interface. 

    Let’s explore how you can transfer data from Elementor Forms to other 3rd party applications using Webhook.

    What are webhooks

    Webhooks act as a bridge between two applications that don’t support native integration with each other. By connecting such applications, Webhook facilitates data transfer between them.

    By setting a Webhook you won’t need to manually call for data as is required in the API. Rather, webhook automatically sends data from one application to the other.

    Why do you need a Webhook for Elementor Forms
