Once your accounts are connected you can move on to Step 4, where you can add custom filters, if you only want submissions that meet certain criteria to get sent to Mad Mimi. This link has more on that process:


Step 5 is the meat of your zap, where you decide what parts of your PayPal sale correspond to different parts of an audience member. Make sure that all fields marked 'Required' have data by using the 'Insert Fields' button or choosing an option from the drop-down. More on that process here:


After Step 5 you'll have the chance to test that zap out with sales from PayPal. You can click on the samples to see the data you get from PayPal (you'll need to create a few test sales first) and what info exactly will be sent to Mad Mimi.


The last step is to name your zap and turn it on! Now your sales will end up as new audience members without any extra work!
