Hey! We are Raisegiving, a payments platform geared towards helping nonprofits raise money and manage donors. We are looking to give our Users (Admins of nonprofits) the ability to integrate their Raisegiving account with other tools such as Mailchimp and QuickBooks.
Examples of desired use cases:
- Users should be able to sync Raisegiving audience with their Mailchimp audience, trigger the creation of a new Mailchimp audience based on data from their Raisegiving account.
- Donations made on our platform should sync with users Quickbooks account.
Does anyone have any helpful insights into the pros and cons of Tray.io vs Zapier?
Tray.io is expensive and only makes sense in a few rare occasions where you need 2-way constant data binding in a 'loop' where Zapier is more like an automation swiss army knife. Tray.io is aimed exclusively at enterprise while Zapier supports businesses of any size. Tray.io is very expensive and Zapier is much more reasonable especially early on before you have massive amounts of zaps.
You may also want to look at Integromat but Zapier would be my choice in this case. I almost don't see Tray.io as being something worth considering for your particular use case unless there's a massive scale behind your product that I'm unaware of (absurd amounts of tasks in the hundreds of thousands).
Zapier also has a great community and an "experts" program in the event that you want to outsource your automation.

Hey! I have been using Zapier for a while and I get updates for everything that I do. :D Sports, gmail, and pretty much everything else!
Huge time saver. I used to tweet from the Leanstack account in real-time. Then I somehow found out that people don’t actually do that anymore. I had heard of Buffer somehow, so I tried it out and was on the free tier for a while. Then I realized I could save a ton of time by just scheduling tweets once/week. Then I hit the Free plan limit, and I upgraded and started the once/week scheduling. I’ve been happy ever since. Protip: use the “Shuffle” feature after scheduling a lot of tweets at once to mix it up a bit
Honestly have not yet used Buffer in this particular stack, but with past experience using it and a personal inclination towards Buffer for social media management, we intend to handle syndicated and scheduled social media content to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn using them.
Check raining weather. Stock price tracking. Cross post articles between LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook pages for business growth or press release.
Zapier is used to catch Webhooks from Shopify to do things like customer follow-up, cart abandonment and other cool things.
- Trigger Redmine issues.
- Merge request trigger from Gitlab by webhook.
- Post messages/alerts to Chatwork to dev team.
We use Buffer for general social media management, especially in terms of analytics and general oversight.
This service saves so much time integrating different API services and triggering different cloud apps.
Monitoring new customer sales, keeping MailChimp lists up to date with current subscriber information.
We use Buffer to plan our important tweets like reminders for call for speakers, registration, etc.
Sends messages to Slack when code is committed in BitBucket or when deploys have launched.
I use IFTTT to pipe posts from Instagram, Google+, and Medium to my WordPress blog.
