AWeber issue: "Create Subscriber" action returns "blocked/fake address" error

My question is, for the “Create Subscriber in Aweber” what email label as required are you supposed to use? Is the email for testing purposes or does it need to be a particular email? Next in the Name filed which is not require and the Tags which also do not say required should I be putting something in those regardless?

Once I run test from Zapier to Aweber I get a response with” id 0”, email the same one that I put in the required field and the “status not added because blocked/fake address”. What is causing this and what do I do to fix this?

Good question.

Required fields in a Zap step must have a valid value.

You should map an email address dynamic variables from Step 1 to Step 2.

Make sure to test with real/representative data.

Hi @Troy Tessalone 

Would I add {{Name}} in the name areas? I’m not to familiar how to do that.
