WordPress Integration WITHOUT WordPress-to-Lead

Is there a way to integrate WordPress to SalesForce using alternate Contact Forms and NOT use the WordPress-to-Lead Plugin?

We are looking to send a Contact Form to the SalesForce database and NOT the WP database.  We also want to be able to send the same data to an email address.  However, the contact form solutions out there either automatically put the data in the database, and/or do not integrate with SalesForce as easily as WordPress-to-Lead Plugin.  Suggestions?

Hi Clare,

Yes, there are other ways to integrate WordPress with Salesforce without using the WordPress-to-Lead plugin. Here are some alternatives:
  1. Use a Form builder plugin that supports Salesforce integration : There are several form builder plugins available for WordPress that have built-in support for Salesforce integration. Some popular options include Gravity Forms, Formidable Forms, and WPForms.
  2. Use a third-party integration service : There are several third-party integration services available that can connect your WordPress site with Salesforce. Some popular options include Zapier, Integromat, and Workato.
  3. Use the Salesforce REST API : If you have development experience, you can use the Salesforce REST API to create a custom integration between your WordPress site and Salesforce.
As for sending the same data to an email address, most Form builder plugins have email notification features that allow you to configure an email address to receive form submissions. You can set up an email notification to be sent to the desired email address along with the Salesforce integration.

If you plan to integrate Salesforce with WordPress using the Gravity Forms Salesforce Plugin, I recommend checking out the article at for a comprehensive guide. It includes step-by-step instructions to connect, cost considerations, limitations, and best practices for using the Gravity Forms Salesforce Plugin.
