One of the great things about using Webflow to build websites is the pixel-perfect control you get over your designs. That said, if you want to do more than add basic components and features to your pages, you’ll need to look outside of Webflow for that.
The good news is that Webflow has a lot of apps and services it integrates with. For instance, if you want to add a payment processor, translate your content, or create a better search experience, you’ll find a Webflow integration for it.
Below we’ll look at 10 of the most useful Webflow integrations to start with.
How to Use and Install Webflow Integrations
You may have noticed an area called Integrations on the backend of your Webflow website. You’ll find it under Workspace Settings.
This is where you’ll find a list of your Authorized Applications.
However, in order to activate a third-party integration, you’ll need to go to Webflow University and then follow the link to the source. There’s no way to install an integration from inside of Webflow.
While I’ll be giving you links to the direct sources below, it’s a good idea to bookmark this list of integrations. That way, when you decide to add a new feature or functionality to your site, you’ll have an aggregated list of all the approved integrations in one place.
10 of the Best Webflow Integrations
If you’re looking to impress more visitors, generate more leads, and/or make more sales, then these Webflow integrations will come in handy:
Designing a website that is engaging for visitors is critical. Designing a website that makes visitors want others to engage with it is just as important.
AddThis is a Webflow integration that includes a variety of engagement boosting tools:
- Social share buttons
- Social follow buttons
- Related posts blocks
- Promotional banners, pop-ups, and sliders
- Tip jars
If you’re building a website that will be regularly publishing new content — like a blog or shop — this integration will be invaluable. Add these components around your highest quality content and watch lead generation, website engagement, and referrals soar.
Calendly is an appointment scheduling app. While you could keep your Calendly scheduler separate from your website, the better option is to embed Calendly onto the relevant pages of your site.
This integration will be useful if you want people to be able to make their own appointments from your website. Calendly supports all kinds of appointments — consultations, services, classes, webinars, and so on.
What's especially nice about Calendly is that it integrates with a wide variety of platforms. For example:
- Google Calendar
By taking advantage of its many integrations, you can automate the majority of the booking process. For instance, by syncing Calendly with Zoom, a new conference room will be generated whenever someone makes an appointment with you.
Jetboost is the second multi-plugin integration on this list. What’s great about finding Webflow integrations like these is that it reduces the number of integrations you need to use. Plus, if you can find one provider to create a bunch of reliable tools and features for your site, that’s always a good thing.
As for what you use Jetboost for, it depends on what type of content you have on your website.
The Jetboost product that I think everyone will find useful is the real-time, on-page search engine. You can add it to your blog, shop, job listings, and other data-filled pages. Or you can place it on your sidebar and enable users to look through all your content.
Jetboost also has search-enhancing products, like dynamic filtering and sorting as well as advanced pagination. So if you want to make it easier for visitors to find what they’re looking for the first time around, this integration will be invaluable.
While Webflow has its own collection of form Elements, it’s not the best way to build out forms. Instead, use the Mailchimp integration — called the Elfsight Form Builder — to create more advanced forms, segment your audiences, and automate your communications with them.
It’s the latter two features that are the most important. Any CMS will enable you to build contact and lead generation forms. However, what you want is a tool that will streamline all of the work that happens after your form gets filled out.
Something else to think about with Mailchimp is how it integrates with other platforms. You can add forms to all kinds of platforms and services — like your social media accounts, chat widgets, surveys, subscription pages, and more. Having a tool that enables you to create consistent forms across all your channels would be beneficial in terms of brand building.
Memberstack is a Webflow plugin that makes it easy to launch a website that sells one-time and recurring products and services. This would be useful if you’re selling things like:
- Software products
- Recurring services
- Gated content
With this integration, you’ll be able to set up everything you need to sell these specialized products to customers.
It all starts with templates built for specific types of recurring products. In addition, you’ll enable users to create accounts so they can add their personal details, save payment methods, and manage their services.
Plus, this plugin integrates with a ton of other apps, including many of the ones on this list. So you won’t have to worry about any conflicting integrations between Memberstack and Webflow since the platforms seamlessly work together.
Webflow is a powerful website builder. While it gives you the tools to create great looking and dynamic websites, it falls short when it comes to analytics (like most content management systems do).
While you could use the Google Analytics integration to monitor your website’s traffic and performance, the app has become confusing and convoluted over the last couple of years. If you want to be able to quickly glance at your data and understand what’s going on with your site, the Nocodelytics integration would be a better choice.
With this app, you and your clients will have a much easier way to review your website analytics. What’s more, you won’t be bogged down with irrelevant data points. You’ll be able to track data related to website visits, on-site searches, clicks and other meaningful engagements.
POWR is the last collection of apps on this list. You’re going to find this integration attractive if you’ve been looking to add common features to your web pages that don’t appear to be readily available within Webflow.
For example, POWR comes with apps for:
- Multimedia sliders
- Media galleries
- Promotional pop-ups
- Live chat
- Tabbed content
These types of website features are fairly common, but you’ll need more than the Webflow builder in order to add them to your site. With this integration, you’ll get access to all of them and more.
I’d suggest comparing AddThis and POWR before committing to one over the other. There’s some overlap between the features, so see if you can find one that gives you everything you need so you’re not having to mess around with multiple integrations if you don’t need to.
Whether you’re setting up a full-fledged online store or want to sell a handful of products or services, your Webflow site is going to need a fast and secure payment gateway.
Webflow integrates with a number of different payment processors. However, Stripe is one of the leading solutions on the market and accepts a wide range of currencies if you’re planning to sell to an international audience.
Speaking of international users, Weglot is a must-have integration if you’re building a website that will serve a global audience. While you could assume that users will translate the text on your pages using their browser, there’s no guarantee of accuracy with that DIY method.
To ensure that every visitor can fully understand your content, Weglot is essential. Use this app to automatically translate your text into any of 100+ languages.
If you’d prefer, you can hire translators to provide the text for the most popularly requested languages on your site. Another option is to do a mix of both — get your text automatically translated and then have someone edit it (from your end or from Weglot’s).
It’s up to you how you put this app to use.
If you were to compare Webflow’s approved list of integrations with something like WordPress’s plugin repository, you might be disappointed. While basic features and functionality you want will likely be there, you may have more case-specific needs you want to address.
That doesn’t mean you need to use a different website builder. It just means that you need Zapier. As of writing this, Zapier can connect Webflow websites to more than 5,000 apps.
For example, you can use Zapier to do stuff like:
- Add form leads to a CRM like Salesforce.
- Create new tasks in a tool like Trello when someone requests a consultation.
- Update a Google Sheet every time a new purchase has been made in your store.
- Create a Zendesk ticket when someone fills out your contact form asking for support.
- Generate a Facebook post to promote a recently published blog post.
Whatever you’ve dreamed of doing to automate the processes attached to your site, you can likely create that functionality and automation using Zapier.
Webflow is a powerful website builder in that it gives you total control over your designs and content. That said, the kind of content and features you’re able to put on your site is limited.
This is why integrations are always something to consider before you settle on a website builder or content management system. The available features and functionality can make or break your web design capabilities.
While Webflow’s list of approved integrations may seem small in comparison to some competitors, Zapier opens up a whole world of possibilities. Just keep in mind that Zapier integrations require a bit more work in setting up than direct one-to-one integrations. So be sure to factor that into your decision-making process if you’re on the fence about using Webflow.
