Using WP Serverless Forms WordPress Plugin with Basin

WP Serverless Forms is designed to replace PHP form actions with API and WebHook driven services such IFTTT, Basin, FormKeep, Formspree, custom Endpoints and more.

Using WP Serverless Forms with Basin

To get started create a Basin account. They offer a free starter plan for core features that would cover most users needs.

Once you have an account and verified your email address create you first form endpoint. This endpoint will generate a unique URL.

Your basin URL will look something like this:

Installing WP Serverless Forms

Next, download, install and activate WP Serverless Forms.

The options for this page are under Settings admin menu labeled, WP Serverless Forms.

There you’ll see an option for a new HTTP Endpoint. This is the URL that was generated by the 3rd party provider such as Basin.

Using with Contact Form 7

WP Serverless Forms is designed to work with minimal config. There are no settings or changes you need to make to Contact Form 7 or your existing forms, just install the WP SLS Forms plugin, add your Endpoint and that’s it.

While active, WP Serverless forms will replace the Contact Form 7 action URL with the Basin (or URL) of your choice. When users submit forms data is sent to those endpoints.
