Need to track contacts and payments made from PayPal in Salesforce? You're in luck: Anytime you have a new purchase in PayPal, Zapier will copy their contact info to make a new contact AND a new opportunity in Salesforce. That means you can stop copying and pasting customer information and payment histories!

How this integration works

  1. Successful sales come through PayPal
  2. Zapier searches for matching contacts in Salesforce or creates a new one
  3. Zapier creates new opportunities in Salesforce
