Trouble using Zapier with Patreon

Here’s what’s happening: I use Zapier.com’s automation tools to help manage my Patreon account including a Zapier zap that triggers on New Member Pledge. One of the actions is that it sends a message to a specific Slack channel. However, every time I get a new member pledge, there are least two and sometimes three messages generated, the first one or two with zero as the pledge amount and the last with the actual pledge amount.

I’ve checked my Zapier task history and it is indeed running multiple times, not just outputting the message multiple times in one run. My assumption is that this is a bug in Patreon’s implementation of the Zapier API. Thoughts or suggestions?

I’ve had the same problem for months. Looking forward to an answer!
