In the quest to automate some of your business processes, you’ve probably come across Zapier. The best part; Zapier offers a free plan to help you get set up. You can build and run some basic workflows to see if Zapier is right for you. However, the free plan offered by Zapier does not allow you to experience its full power.
Today, we look at some of the limitations on Zapier’s free plan and what you get access to when upgrading to a paid plan.

Zapier is a platform that helps people automate processes in their businesses by connecting various apps together in steps controlled by conditional logic of ‘if this then that’. On Zapier, you have free apps and premiums apps. What is the difference?
