Supported FastBill Integrations


Authorise FastBill

To connect your FastBill account, we need the email address you used to set up your FastBill account and API Key. If you already authorized your FastBill account(s) in the past or in any other PieSync integration, you'll be able to skip this part of the authorization and choose from your CONNECTED ACCOUNTS.

Default Field Mapping 

Depending on the other app you're syncing with, you'll see a number of FastBill fields being mapped by default. For instance, in a connection with Google Contacts, the default field mapping looks like this:

PieSync syncs the default name field(s) that come with the apps. Sometimes they have a different structure in both apps you connect. E.g. first and last names are separate in app A and joint in one field in app B. In the background, PieSync joins first and last names together from app A to B and separates them again from app B to A. Our algorithm is smart about which part it updates in app B.

Customizable Field Mapping

You can custom map any additional FastBill fields that aren't included in the default mapping yet. Bear in mind a mapping between two fields can only exist if the types of fields are compatible and the particular compatibility will determine the direction of the mapping as well.

Additional Options

Syncing Deletions

In connections between Google Contacts and FastBill you are able to SYNC DELETIONS one-way.
When a contact gets deleted in Google Contacts, we add the tag 'PieSync Trash'  to that same contact in FastBill.
You will be able to review this segment first before deleting or taking any other action in FastBill too. 

Syncing Unsubscribes

In connections between FastBill and some marketing tools we support such as e.g. MailChimp, you are able to SYNC UNSUBSCRIBES one-way.
When a contact gets unsubscribed in your marketing tool, we add the tag 'PieSync Unsubscribes'  to that same contact in FastBill.
You will be able to review this segment first before taking any action in FastBill too. 
The availability of these additional options is app and connection dependent. If the feature box (screenshots above) is not there to tick, it's simply not possible. We need to be able to detect deletions on one side and at the same time be able to create add the tag 'PieSync Trash' on the other side. 
Thanks to the feedback we have already received, we created a list of popular apps that we’re going to work on very soon. By voting them up in our pipeline, YOU decide which connectors we’ll release first. If you don’t see your app on the list or need any further help, drop us a line - support@piesync.com. Don't forget to read our blog for the latest in productivity, apps, and technology!
