This guide by Zoho shows how to create a PHP application for yourself or clients that can be integrated with Zoho CRM. PHP code is used to create executable actions for websites. In this case, an application is created to offer a dynamic solution to your web page.

PHP SDK offers a way to create client PHP applications that can be integrated with Zoho CRM. This SDK makes the access and use of necessary CRM APIs with ease. In other words, it serves as a wrapper for the REST APIs, making it easier to use the services of Zoho CRM.
A point to note would be that the developer of the client application should create programming code elements along with configuration-related properties files, interface implementations, instances or objects. Authentication to access Zoho CRM APIs is through Oauth authentication mechanism. Invariably, HTTP requests and responses are taken care by SDK.
