After a long time trying to build a marketplace using (hacking) out-of-the-box solutions, I finally decided to take the Webflow + MemberStack path. I’m happy I did! I know it will be a long journey to learn and implement the solutions, but I’m sure it will be worth it.
So, I want to start with a more general question to make sure I understand the basic concept right.
My understanding is that:
- The user fills up and submits a signup form on Webflow.
- The user’s info gets added to Memberstack.
- Zapier sends the info from Memberstack to Airtable.
- Zapier sends the info from Airtable back to Webflow CMS.
So, my questions are:
Is this the correct approach?
Why do I need Airtable (or Google Sheets) in between? Can’t I just have the info bouncing between MemberStack and Webflow?
Couldn’t it be problematic to have 3 copies of the same database (memberstack, airtable and webflow)?
I’d appreciate any resource I can get my hands into to learn more about these integrations.
( After watching the Webflow Basic tutorial and reading several posts here, I’m starting to get my head around it)
Thank you very much!
