We send invoices through Stripe. We want to trigger a Zap when the customer pays that invoice. So which trigger should we use to initiate a Zap?

New charge or New customer or New order? It’s quite confusing.

Hi @thinker500 

Try the Stripe “New Charge” trigger.

You may have to follow that with a Filter step as Step 2.

Thank you @Troy Tessalone for your answer.

But don’t know what should we check in the filter (step 2).

As we will be taking payment against the invoice, we should check if the charge is made against the invoice or not. Right?

If that’s right, what fields should we check for in the filter step? There’s no exact field from Stripe that can tell us that the payment made is against the invoice that we sent.

Try this…

Use a Webhooks trigger for your Zap, which will generate a webhook to put in Stripe.

In Stripe, go to Developers, then Webhooks, and Add Endpoint.

For the Events to Send, search by “invoice” and choose “invoice.paid”.
