These instructions are for Velocify™ Clients who are already using the Zillow integration.
Zillow.com is now sending Version 2 Lead Notifications.
The new fields that are part of Version 2 Lead Notifications are:
Borrower Email Address- In the earlier version of the Zillow it was only possibly to capture borrower contact information over the phone after the borrower contacted the lender. Now it is possible to have borrowers email address posted from Zillow to Velocify.
Contact Price- Zillow charges for leads when contact is made between the borrower and the lender. The cost is contained in this field. The data is provided by Zillow.
New fields also include VA Loan Fields- Zillow is offering a new loan type: the VA loan. The new fields contain VA loan data. These are: Eligible for VA Loan, VA Loan First Time Use, Has VA Related Disability, and Veteran Type.
To begin receiving version 2 lead notifications:
It is necessary for existing customers to upgrade to API Version 2 to receive Version 2 Notifications. To make this upgrade, follow these steps:
Go to www.zilow.com
Click Sign In in the upper right hand corner
Log in with the credentials for the account whose notifications you want to upgrade
Hover over the My Zillow tab and click the Lender Billing link
All saved searches on the edited account will be updated immediately, and version 2 notifications will be sent to relevant URLs specified in your Zillow account from that point forward.
To configure a lender account to post contacts the lender must add the URL on their lender settings page. Here's how:
On the Lender Settings page, click the Enable Contact API checkbox and add the Contact API URL* to which you would like the contacts posted in Contact API field.
*Note: This is a different URL than the URL that your leads are posted to. You will need to contact your Velocify account manager or client support to get this URL. To use the Zillow integration, you need to use 2 different types of URLS from Velocify that you must input at zillow.com. The Contact API URL you get from Velocify support. This is different than the Delivery Instructions/URL that you get from the Velocify Manage Campaigns page when you save searches at zillow.com.
If you would like to stop receiving the contacts through e-mail, uncheck the Enable Email Contact option.
