Updated over a week ago


The synergy between Cardtapp and Zapier is designed to facilitate seamless operations, but occasional hiccups can arise. Addressing these common challenges promptly can ensure that your automated workflows remain effective and efficient. Here's a guide to help you navigate through common issues and their solutions.

1. Triggers Not Activating

  • Check the Connection: Ensure that Cardtapp is correctly connected to Zapier. Sometimes, an expired authentication or a revoked permission can disrupt this connection.

  • Test the Trigger: Within Zapier, use the "Test Trigger" functionality to check if the trigger is working as expected.

  • Review Trigger Conditions: Ensure that the conditions specified for the trigger match the actual events in Cardtapp. For instance, if you've set up a "Tapper Created" trigger, ensure that new contacts are actually being added to Cardtapp.

2. Actions Not Being Carried Out

  • Check Action Setup: Ensure that the action is correctly set up in Zapier. Every field and condition should be appropriately mapped.

  • Inspect Data Fields: Sometimes, missing or incompatible data can prevent an action from being executed. For example, if you're trying to add a contact to an email list, ensure that the email field from Cardtapp is correctly mapped to the email field in your marketing tool.

  • Test the Action: Use the "Test Action" functionality in Zapier to diagnose any issues with the action process.

3. Data Not Syncing Correctly

  • Review Data Mappings: Ensure that all data fields from Cardtapp are correctly mapped to the corresponding fields in the connected app.

  • Check Data Formats: Ensure that the data formats in Cardtapp match the expected formats in the connected app. For example, date formats might differ between apps.

  • Inspect Filters: If you've set up filters in your Zaps, ensure they aren't inadvertently filtering out essential data.

4. General Troubleshooting Tips

  • Reconnect Accounts: Sometimes, disconnecting and reconnecting your Cardtapp account to Zapier can resolve minor glitches.

  • Update Apps: Ensure that both Cardtapp and the connected app are updated to their latest versions.

  • Check Zapier's Task History: Zapier provides a task history that can help pinpoint where a Zap failed, giving insights into what might have gone wrong.

5. Reaching Out for Support

If you've tried the above steps and the issue persists, don't hesitate to contact Cardtapp's support team. They are well-equipped to assist with integration challenges and can provide expert guidance to get your Zaps running smoothly.

  • Contact Cardtapp Support: Reach out via email, phone, or the in-app chat feature.

  • Provide Detailed Information: When contacting support, provide as much detail as possible about the issue, including screenshots, error messages, and a description of the steps you've already taken to troubleshoot.


While the Cardtapp-Zapier integration is designed for a smooth user experience, understanding how to address common challenges ensures that you can quickly get back on track if issues arise. With a proactive approach to troubleshooting and the support of the Cardtapp team, you can make the most of this powerful integration.
