The people replying are expert and appeared well-informed with many of the assistance questions I asked until I got to a concern handling integrations. They were often a bit unaware when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t help with what I required. With the more basic concerns, I didn’t need to go backward and forward with them numerous times to get the problem sorted out – .

Then you would not require to use Zapier and you would not need to pay an extra fee. Unfortunately, I don’t think you’ll solve the problem by utilizing a various email marketing service.
