  • 13 May 2020

I’m hoping to launch a membership program with my company June 4th. I want people to purchase the program through PayPal and have their contact information go into Active Campaign as a separate entity. I also want an automation to thank them for purchasing the membership.

I’ve been requested to use Zapier with Active Campaign however, I’m unsure which is the best way to link everything. 

I need advised please. This is all new to me. 

Help?  Thanks

Hi @LiveLifeColourfully! Welcome to the Community :)

I think in this case you’d be looking at something like this:

Trigger: PayPal — Successful Sale
Action: ActiveCampaign — Add Contact to Automation

Luckily, we happen to have a Zap Template that you can use that will kickstart this for you :slight_smile: You can see that template, and others, as well as more information about PayPal and ActiveCampaign integrating here:

Now, you’d have to create the automation in ActiveCampaign, to which you would then add the contact via the Zap. Hope that makes sense! If anything is unclear, please let me know!
