If This Then That (IFTTT) – https://ifttt.com/ is an online platform that allows multiple services to be connected together. For example, if you get a certain text message, it can put a post on facebook for you. Alternatively, you can use IFTTT to expand the functionality of existing services such as Alexa, to send you an email when your Alexa alarm goes off.
The principle of IFTTT is simple, connect multiple services together…. Well what about WHMCS?
WHMCS – https://whmcs.com is a client management, billing and support solution primarily used for web hosting. Orders are placed, tickets are raised, invoices are generated and all the bits in between. All of it, within WHMCS.
Usually the staff or administrator of WHMCS receives email notifications when ever a new event occurs. But why not expand how notifications can be received using IFTTT.
This script uses the official WHMCS API to integrate itself as a new Notification Provider. Once set-up this script, using PHP & CURL will pass the notification through to IFTTT to the IFTTT Web Hooks module.
Once setup within WHMCS you can then move to IFTTT.com and configure an endless number of possibilities ranging from Text Message / Mobile Notification to turning on a lamp at home when you get a new notification. You could even have dominos deliver a pizza to your house when you have a invoice paid (You’re welcome to set this up to my home address!)
