Hi could you clarify what Zaps is just so I know if i upgrade 20 will be enough. I had only one running on the free version. but says i have no zaps, it zap meaning every time I've triggered it to try and go off, I only set up for PayPal and mail chimp and it didn't work. 


So is it how many times it triggered and zapped or is it like payola and mail chimp is one zap and them many chat and course craft another zap?


Thank you.

Hi @Christine - A zap is basically a task automation that links one or more apps. A zap contains one trigger and one or more actions.

In the free tier, you can have up to 5 “active” zaps and up 100 tasks/month. When you select a paid plan, the number of active zaps you can run and the monthly task quota will increase.

To get a better understanding of the key concepts in Zapier, I’d suggest reading these articles:
