When someone purchases your product or donates to your cause, you'll want to thank them in some way, but that generally means manually gathering the information from the sale and sending the email yourself. Zapier can help you do this automatically so you can spend your time on the more important things in your organization and less time on the tedious tasks.

How it works

  1. Someone makes a purchase or donation on your website via PayPal
  2. Zapier automatically sends them an email

What you'll need

  • A Paypal account
  • A Gmail account
  • A Zapier account
