Trying to add leads to my Aweber list. 


I have a form on my landing page, connected to a webhook 

Zap is webhook > find aweber subscriber > update aweber subscrIber. 


I want to capture NAME and EMAIL address. 


I want to send traffic to this form that is

1)SUBSCRIBED and I want to update them with a TAG

2) NOT SUBSCRIBED YET - I want to add them to my list and TAG them. 


On the Find aweber Subscriber step I get this error: 

Of COURSE the person has already been subscribed!!!! I am trying to FIND them in my list… 

Screenshot below of my step 2: 




Please help. This is driving me crazy! It seems to be working, but i am getting my inbox filled with error messages…

You can try this setup with Paths (Pro+ plan required)

  1. Trigger: Webhook
  2. Action: AWeber - Find Subscriber
    1. Set to continue for no match
  3. Action: Paths
    1. Action: Path A
      1. Action: Filter
        1. Condition: Step 2 match found = false
      2. Action: AWeber - Create Subscriber
    2. Action: Path B
      1. Action: Filter
        1. Condition: Step 2 match found = true
      2. Action: AWeber - Update Subscriber
