I need a feature to pull transaction IDs as a buyer and then send it to google sheet. Like, I paid someone for an item via PayPal. Now I want to get this transaction ID into google sheet.

 

It seems like there is only Zaps for merchant who use paypal to receive money from customers. No trigger events for buyer? Anyone?

Hi @z-m-a 

When you make a purchase, you should get a receipt email from PayPal with the transaction ID. You can setup a zap that parses the data from that email, grabs the ID and then triggers a zap that writes it to Google Sheets.

Zapier has its own parser, and I wrote a blog post about other passing options.
