Nothing says celebration like fireworks. Set up this integration, and we'll throw you a party whenever you make some money. It will trigger with every new successful sale you make on PayPal, automatically finding a random "fireworks" GIF on GIPHY and inserting that, along with the sale's value, in an email notification we'll send to you. The more you sell, the bigger the party!

Note: you can customize the keyword for the GIF while setting up the integration.

How this PayPal-GIPHY-Gmail integration works

  1. A new sale is made on PayPal
  2. Zapier automatically finds a random "fireworks" GIF on Giphy and sends you an email notification for the PayPal sale, including the GIF
