Example Use Cases

  • Automated Thank-You Postcards: After a customer completes a purchase on an e-commerce platform, trigger a workflow in Pipedream that sends a personalized thank-you postcard using the Lob API. This gesture can enhance customer loyalty and provide a memorable brand experience.

  • Billing Reminders via Mail: Set up an automated system that sends out physical billing reminders or invoices to customers who have due payments. By integrating the Lob API with a payment processing platform on Pipedream, you can target those who haven't engaged with digital reminders.

  • Address Cleanup for CRM: Keep your CRM data pristine by using Lob's address verification. Create a Pipedream workflow that periodically checks and updates customer addresses in your CRM system, ensuring that all physical correspondence reaches its intended destination.

Authentication

Lob uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Lob account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Lob APIs in both code and no-code steps.

Enter your Live Lob secret API key below.

You can find this key under your account settings in the Lob dashboard.

Alternatively, you can use your Test Secret API Key, but you'll need to create a new Lob Connected Account in Pipedream in order to make Live requests.
