- Easily automates thousands of tasks
- Inexpensive, cost effective
- Cost increases dramatically to add functionality
- Zapier needs to increase the number of tasks per subscription
- A video library to help people on how to use Zapier
- Zapier can integrate perfectly with almost every single app or service out there
- Even if an integration is not developed you can always use the global integrations to connect with webhooks, emails, parsing, and build from zero your own custom integrations (you need more tech knowledge)
- Zapier can run as fast as real-time, and with one of the paid options it gives you more than 75,000 tasks which is really good. They also have the free version which runs I think every 15 minutes and it has 100 tasks which is not bad for testing purposes. Actually, a few companies nowadays offer this kind of free tier.
- The builder nowadays is really easy and friendly to use, they have implemented advanced features as paths and decision points and they continuously improve the platform.
- Sometimes 75,000 tasks are not enough (believe it or not), and after that point, you start to pay per task it would be nice if they would offer more tasks under the same plan price.
- It's supposed to work in collaboration with your team, but I feel there is plenty of opportunities here.
- They have user communities for advanced and new users, but I think it could be done better
- Allows for integration with apps that don’t have a native integration
- Do not have to create complicated API codes
- Provides instructions and examples on how to create work flows
- Some can be lacking in instructional details needed
- Sometimes a zap will yield an error which can be hard to troubleshoot
- Customer support is limited bc zapier cannot access your apps
- Low cost
- Easy configuration
- Tons of native integrations
- Lack of customization options within integrations
- Limited ability to execute outside of the core functionality
- Inability to run large-volume integrations at a competitive price point
- Ease of use
- More apps
- More workflow options
When we take orders, we need to print a form out for our production team, make sure it's in the calendar, and send a confirmation to the customer. Zapier makes this easy and is a great tool to supplement Google Forms.
- Connects Google Forms to calendar
- Makes it easy to duplicate Zaps
- Provides customer service when there are issues.
- Could be easier to learn how to make zaps especially with calendars
- Need an easier way to format dates.
- Massive amount of supported apps
- Reliable at getting data where it needs to be
- Easy for non-developer team mates to setup integrations with on their own
- Pricing is high depending on use case
- Related to the above, if an app does not have the best trigger or action setup, it might take 2-3 zaps to accomplish what should really be a single zap, and this would could be prohibitively expensive, costing even more per month than the software tools themselves you are connecting
If a service already offers a native integration with the other service you need to connect, there is no point in using Zapier, but with tens of thousands of popular software tools out there, it isn't possible for every SaaS to integrate with every other, thus the need for Zapier.

For example, when running a webinar as a marketing funnel, our funnel software doesn’t integrate directly with our webinar software or our CRM. Luckily Zapie reintegrated with all 3 platforms so it allows us to functionally sign up registrants to our webinars using our designed funnel pages and store their details in our CRM.
We also use Zapier across 20 or more similar scenarios for other marketing funnels where pieces do not connect natively, Eg our WordPress website, WooCommerce purchases, Typeform quizzes, ClickFunnels opt-ins, Asana project tasks, and ActiveCampaign email subscribers. It’s very versatile in how many different services it can connect with that otherwise would not be able to work together easily.
- Connecting software and services that do not connect natively.
- Passing data from one software system to another.
- Using simple logic to trigger automations in specific situations.
- You can only access logic pathways (ie perform different actions based on data received) on higher plans.
- Sometimes when a zap fails it notifies me by email but they get lost in my inbox and I don’t notice.
- Triggers alerts for new business inquiries.
- Sends contact data from one system to the next with ease.
- Allows us to track outside lead sources based on number of zaps.
- Certain programs are not syncing properly and after requesting help, need quicker repairs.
- Automatically collect leads from Facebook's API and put it in any CRM of your choosing.
- Automatically send emails based on the CRM status of your lead/client (meaning you can plug in your Mailchimp or whatever you're using and integrate it into your sales pipeline).
- Use webhooks to start automation sequences from your LP lead generation (for example if someone left their details on your LP, send their data to Mailchimp and start an emailing sequence).
- Sometimes specific CRMs aren't configured to the max in Zapier's interface, but their customer support always listens to your problems, opens a ticket and lets you know once your feature is done.
Due to lack of experience with using Zapier in large corporates, I'm not sure if it's well suited for it, but I doubt the right person can't find the right functionality to make it work. It's very easy to use and offers tons of APIs.
- They connect apps to one another.
- The make Facebook lead ads flow right into your tracking sheet.
- They allow the internal part of my business work together.
- They could use a few more app integrations.
This made me more autonomus and helped me improve my productivity.
Zapier is quite easy, powerful, and cost-effective automation solution.
Zapier became a must have tool to our everyday work.
- Connecting apps easily
- Automate work
- Good support
- May be more concrete examples of growth productivity
- Some video training by area of expertise (e.g marketing)
You can update your leads in both ways from your automation tool and CRM.
You can connect all your forms to your crm and it is very efficient .
- Ease of use - multiple people in the organization can set up and run Zaps per their specific use cases without much training.
- Connectivity - Zapier is able to connect to multiple applications we use on a regular basis.
- Functionality - Zapier provides embedded functionality within the app itself (email, data conversion), but also appropriate triggers and actions for apps it connects to.
- Versatile - Zapier can execute complicated and simple tasks and thus has many use cases.
- Complexity - due to the flexibility it provides, this can introduce some complexity across the different steps being set up operationally.
- Dependence - depending on the use case Zapier becomes a key tool and dependency and thus needs to be monitored, without internal control to fix things. If Zapier goes down (rarely, but can always happen), then this could present a problem.
- Variability in pricing - pricing relies on the numbers actions being triggered and depending on how you've set up the zap, it could increase quickly, and thus needs to be monitored and understood.
- Highlight key activities in business (new sign ups, missing information, cancellations, key successful events of our users).
- Post key events, as above to Slack or Email.
- Efficient updating of parts of our in-house built applications and many more.
- Zapier is easy to explain and set up for our clients.
- Zapier allows our team to pay more attention to strategy than development.
- I think the pricing structure could be made more clear to users.
- Definitely more access to additional integrations and more options within those integrations would be helpful.
Some of the most common things we do with Zapier include automated notifications to our company Slack for important notifications and new sales leads. We use it a lot to create tasks in Asana for reviewing new leads, partner applications, etc.
- Quick to get started, and there are plenty of examples to follow.
- Works with almost any program you use, either out of the box or via API.
- Filters and branching help build logic into automations.
- Finding and saving your Zaps can take some getting used to.
For small little fixes, personal productivity, and notifications/tasks it's a home run.
- Seems to have widest range of integrations compared to other vendors
- Very clear and easy to use, from set up to testing and running
- Some times the interface seems a little slow to load
- Requires plugin for WooC integration that needs an admin login and password--would be better if just tapped directly into the API like other platforms can
- Sometimes (though rarely) processes are delayed, which can interfere with business processes
