Send Exported WordPress Data via Email using Zapier

Zapier can be used to send an export file via email. Connect Zapier to WP All Export and create the required trigger and action. The trigger would execute whenever a new export is found. The action would be sending the export file via email using Gmail.

Trigger: New Export File in WP All Export Pro
