I am using Zapier to send data to my webhook. How does Zapier send data to my webhook?
Zapier will be triggered for every row/record of a spreadsheets that is being imorted. Therefore, your webhook will be hit for every row/record of a spreadsheet.
Make sure your webhook can handle a high-volume of requests in case a user imports a large spreadsheet consiting of many rows.

Why is Zapier limited to 100 rows per import?
If EasyCSV enabled you to upload more than 100 records per import you would encounter the Zapier rate limiting system – you can read more about it on Zapier's page. Even at 100 records per import you may encounter rate limiting if you attempt to do many 100 record imports.
Let's say EasyCSV enabled uploading of more than 100 records per import, trying to process more than 100 records at a time means Zapier would hold the 101+ tasks and email the Zapier account owner asking for their approval to process them. Once granted, Zapier will process the tasks at the rate of 1 per second. This is known as Zapier's Flood Protection.
At the speed of 1 second of processing per row, then uploading such a large number of items might not be a great fit – this is because processing 9,000 records would take about 2 and a half hours to run.
If you want to upload more than 100 records at once you will want to look for an API for the application that your Zap is sending the data to. If you need help going directly to an app, instead of through Zapier, please contact EasyCSV support and we can help you connect it.
