#Example 1

Here I am showing how to connect PayPal with Zapier. PayPal is a fast and safe way to send money, receive money, set up merchant accounts, make online payments, etc. After selecting PayPal, it will take you to the Zapier.

There will be so many events available on PayPal. Here I am selecting “Trigger when All merchant Transactions, regardless of status” and then, creating a contact on a specific list in the Constant Contact account.

Given below are the base settings of Constant Contact and PayPal. From here you can set up the settings like event, contact adding list, transaction, etc.

In the PayPal settings, there will be several settings. If you want to choose a different app instead of PayPal, you can do it from there. You can also choose the PayPal event from there. PayPal has a list of events like “Only successfully completed payments”, “only refunded payments”, etc.

The next step is setting up the webhook URL. You will need to configure your app with this Zap’s webhook URL. You will get a URL from these settings. So, you have to add this URL as your PayPal IPN Url. Then the next step is, you have to test your trigger. Zapier will find all the merchant transactions in your PayPal account to confirm that the right account is connected and your trigger is set up correctly.

From there you will get all your transaction lists. From there, you can select one transaction. You can see the body, address city, country, etc. of the transaction.

The next is Constant Contact settings. The first step is to set up the event. The invent list includes creating contact, updating contacts, finding contact, etc.

The next step is you have to connect to the Constant Contact account if you have more than one account, you can log out of any account anytime and connect to any account you want.

Then there will appear a popup that Zapier would like to access your account update, campaign data, account read, etc. you have to allow the access. Then only Zapier can fetch the data from your Constant Contact account. After allowing access, click continue.

The next step is to Set up action. In that, there will be so many fields like Create source, email, List, First name, etc. In this, most of the fields are optional. Required fields are Create source and Email. Create a source describing who added the contact. After filling in the fields, click continue.

The next step is Test Action. To test Constant Contact, Zapier will create a new Contact. This will check whether everything is working correctly or not. If there is an error happens, you can retest and review it.

Then they will use a sample like the one given below for setting up the rest of your Zap. It will contain contact_id, email address, permission to send, updated date, etc.

After the test is done, you can click Publish Zap. It will Publish and save your setup, turn on your Zap and start to automate your work. Simple.

Now you can see the connected integration from the Zapier integration. From there also, you can visit Zapier. If you want to disconnect that integration, then, you can do it from there.

#Example 2

Let’s see another example. Here we are going to connect Twitter to Constant Contact using Zapier. Here I selected “Trigger when a specific user likes a tweet”, then “Creates a contact on a specific list in your account”.

On Twitter, the events available are “Trigger when a specific user likes a tweet”, “Trigger when a user of your choosing gets a new follower”, “trigger when there is a new tweet in a specific list you choose”, etc.

The next step is to choose your Twitter account. You have to connect your Twitter account from here.

If you connect to your Twitter account, then you will get a page like this asking “Allow Zapier to access your Twitter Account”. They will also ask to follow Zapier on Twitter for product updates and announcements. But that is optional. You can either follow or not.

The next step is to enter the username. After entering the user name, the next step is to Test the trigger. Zapier will find a recent Tweet in your Twitter account to confirm that the right account is connected and your trigger is set up correctly.

After setting up all the settings of Twitter, the next is Constant Contact set up. Constant Contact set up is the same as above. The events include Create Contact, Update Contact, Find or Create contact, etc. After testing all, hit the publish button. Then your Constant Contact and PayPal will be connected through Zapier.

After clicking Connect Airtable + Constant Contact, you will enter into their settings. From there, if you want to change the app, you can. Also, if you want to change the event, you can do it. There are only two events available for Airtable. They are “Trigger when a new record is created.

The next step is to Choose an account. You have to connect to your Airtable account. For that, you need your Airtable API Key. After entering the API key and clicking continue, Zapier will access your Airtable account.

The next step is to set up Trigger. For that, you have to fill some fields like Base, Table, Limit view, etc. In these, there are required fields and also optional fields. Required fields are Base, Table, and Which timestamp field should Zap use to check for updates.

After finishing the Airtable setup, next is Constant Contact. The Constant Contact events include Create Contact, Update Contact, and Find or create contact. Here I selected create a contact on a specific list.
