How to use SUMIFS function for summing values if criteria range exists in a range?


My data:

A B C a 3 d b 1 a c 8 e d 5

I want to use SUMIFS function, sum range is B1:B4, if the corresponding value in column A exists in column C, sum the values in column B, in this case the sum will be 3 + 5 = 8 I tried =SUMIFS(B1:B4,A1:A4, COUNTIF($C$1:$C$3,A1) but I get zero.
