Help Scout Integration with Amazon and eBay

We’re happy to announce that we now provide Help Scout integration with eBay and Amazon. Now you can support all your customers from one clean, easy-to-use platform!

eBay and Amazon, United on Help Scout

ChannelReply delivers all your eBay and Amazon messages to Help Scout, letting you support all your ecommerce customers from one place. It also provides order and customer data and threads marketplace messages.

No more checking eBay, then Amazon, then one email address, then the next. Help Scout unites all your support in one place—ecommerce marketplaces, email, live chat, even phone support. And its powerful features like saved replies and workflows can do way more than normal eBay and Amazon messaging tools.

Stay Focused—Stay on One Screen

Threaded Amazon Messages in Help Scout

A conversation with an Amazon customer. Customer and agent replies are threaded into the same ticket.

Nothing will derail a train of thought faster than having to switch programs. And if ChannelReply only delivered messages, you’d still have to check Amazon and eBay to find out what the customer ordered, when it’s supposed to arrive, etc. That’s why we also deliver all that info to Help Scout!

In Help Scout, you’ll see all of the following and more in the ChannelReply app:

  • eBay info:
    • Buyer’s user ID
    • Order ID
    • Listing item title
    • Listing item number
    • Listing hyperlink
  • Amazon info:
    • Customer name
    • Order ID
    • Listing name
    • ASIN
    • Listing hyperlink
  • General info:
    • Shipping service level
    • Shipping address
    • Carrier name
    • Tracking ID
    • Order quantity
    • Total amount charged to the customer

With all that available on the ticket, odds are good you’ll never need to look at eBay or Amazon to write your answers. But, in that unlikely event, you can use the listing hyperlinks to jump straight to the item in question. No searching required!

Everything Else You Need to Know

  • Return notifications
  • eBay Resolution Center inquiries and cases
  • Amazon A-to-z Guarantee claims

…and everything else generated by either marketplace. On top of that, ChannelReply can ping you anytime you get negative feedback on Amazon.
