Stop spending your time on data entry so your information matches across your platforms; Zapier automation can handle those workflows for you.

This PayPal-FreshBooks integration, for example, will listen for new successful sales on PayPal, triggering for each and using the information to find an existing client on FreshBooks, create one if none are found, and then create an invoice for them automatically.

How It Works


A new PayPal sale is processed

Automatic Zapier Actions:

  1. A FreshBooks client is found or created
  2. An invoice is created for them on FreshBooks

What You Need

  • PayPal account
