Access to Zapier

It is important to note that access to Zapier requires a Yousign account as well as an App or API plan from the Plus plan.

Good news, this is available also during your 14-day free trial!

However, if you have a lower plan or if your trial period has expired, you can go to your Subscription page to access the Plus plan (or send us a message).

Step 1. Create your account on Zapier

First and foremost, if you don't already have an account on Zapier, create your account here. If you already have a Zapier account, you can go straight to step 2.
