I’m trying to connect Paypal and Mailchimp. I have multiple products, so not sure how to create a zap for one product with it’s price and then another zap for the other product which links to a different Mailchimp audience. Are there unique IPNs for each product and price?

Let's consider the expected outcome for a user in your platform.
- When a user signs up to your platform, you want to send them a welcome message. However, you don't want to them to be added as a subscriber to a Mailchimp audience until they have paid > This is currently happening on Mailchimp side, independent of Zapier.
- When the user pays for a program via PayPal, you then want to add them as a subscriber to an audience in Mailchimp > This automation is the part that's set up on Zapier side. At the moment, it is working as expected as our logs show that no subscriber was created from your Zaps.
Based on this, my theory is that the Mailchimp automation not only creates the welcome message but also adds the user who signed up as a subscriber (before they pay from PayPal, which is when Zapier steps in).
If you wish to send them a welcome email via your Mailchimp automation, you will need to inquire with Mailchimp support whether it is possible to disable it from adding the user as a subscriber. That way, Zapier will step in only when the user pays (as it is doing at the moment), and add them as a subscriber.
