Hi @vantage 

Good question.

Are you encountering an error when trying to map variable across your Zap steps?

Have you tried testing the Zap step after mapping the variables?

Please provide detailed screenshots in order for us to have context, thanks.

 Hi@vantage!

If you take a look at the API documentation for Sendinblue, you can see that these are the accepted formats for numbers:

 

Taking a look at our Formatter (find this under Formatter — Numbers — Format Phone Number), I’d say one of the following should work for you, but be sure to do some testing, to confirm. So the first option or the second last, as shown below:
