They were frequently a bit unaware when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t assist with what I required.

Then you would not need to utilize Zapier and you would not need to pay an extra fee. Unfortunately, I don’t think you’ll resolve the issue by utilizing a various e-mail marketing service.
