Hi @ASAoperations 

This thread is discussed here: 

You should be able to filter them out.

Hello, 

there’s  not much discussion in the that thread so it’s not very helpful. I’m not able to filter out any text that contains ‘recurring’ or similar

Can you send a few screenshots from the Zapier trigger showing what data you receive from paypal?

Hey @ASAoperations,

With the PayPal integration I believe there’s a field called txn_type, which will return the word "recurring" for recurring subscription type payments. If you change the Filter to check the txn_type field (rather than the Raw Ipn Body field) for the word recurring, that should allow you to identify whether the payment triggering the Zap is a recurring one. 

Hopefully that helps! :)
