If you want to publish moments created with GeoBooster on your Pinterest account, you need to set up an integration with Zapier.

First of all, go to https://zapier.com/ and create an account (if you don’t have one). You will need a Premium account to work with webhooks and looping.

  1. Create a new zap: click on “Create zap.”

  2. Set the name of your zap, then type “Webhook” in the search input below the “App event” and click on the “Webhooks by Zapier” in the search results list.

  3. Select “Catch Raw Hook” in the “Event” dropdown and click the “Continue” button.

  4. Copy the “webhook URL”, then go to GeoBooster web-application, choose your business, proceed to the “Settings” page, paste the URL into the “Zapier webhook” field, and click the “Update” button.

  5. Create a new moment in the GeoBooster for your business and approve it for publishing.

  6. Go back to Zapier and click on the “Test trigger” button.

  7. It may say something like “We couldn't find a request”, which is OK, because GeoBooster sends moments to the webhook every 10 minutes. Please wait for 10 minutes and click the “Test trigger” button again.

    customerName: moment.customer || 'Anonymous customer',
