Integrate with Contentful

Contentful is an API-first content management platform to create, manage and publish content on any digital channel. Would you like to use your Bynder assets in your Contentful content? Save yourself time and instead of uploading your assets twice, add your Bynder assets directly to your Contentful content using the Contentful integration. At the same time, the integration ensures that the latest version of your Bynder asset is always reflected in your Contentful content. Once you've uploaded a new asset version to Bynder the latest version will be automatically visible in Contentful.

The integration is built, maintained and supported by Contentful.
