More Detailed Order Info than Free Apps

Shopify Order Data in the ChannelReply App

Zendesk, Freshdesk and Re:amaze all have free Shopify integrations. So why use ChannelReply instead?

The first reason is to get more data. ChannelReply shows all the basic Shopify order info you'd expect—buyer's name, item ordered, etc. But it also shows way more detailed info about your Shopify orders than free apps do, including:

  • Order date
  • Item SKU
  • Tracking number
  • Shipping service (e.g. USPS, DHL, FedEx)
  • Delivery level (e.g. Standard, Express, etc.)

Answer more tickets without switching back and forth between Shopify and your helpdesk. Spend less time lost in a forest of browser tabs. Provide faster, better support and get back to selling!

Cancel, Refund and Restock Hassle-Free

Supporting Shopify customers means more than just answering questions. You also have to deal with refunds, cancellations, and all kinds of other inconveniences. Luckily, with the ChannelReply app, you can handle all this without leaving your helpdesk:

  • Cancel orders as needed
  • Issue refunds for the precise amount necessary
  • Restock items while refunding
  • Edit order details like shipping address and Shopify order tags

Support eBay, Amazon and Walmart on the Same Screen as Shopify

ChannelReply isn’t just for Shopify. It also lets you support unlimited eBay, Amazon and Walmart accounts from the same helpdesk. Try it free here!

Unbeatable Customization

ChannelReply does more than just display order data beside each ticket. Using custom fields, it can also pull your Shopify data into the most advanced tools Zendesk, Freshdesk and Re:amaze have:

Instantly Personalize Your Macros / Canned Replies / Response Templates

Answering a Shopify Message with a Zendesk Macro

Save hours typing replies. ChannelReply can fill in canned responses with details like the buyer’s name, what they purchased, the status of their order, and even their package’s tracking ID. Send personalized responses to any common question without touching your keyboard!

The video below shows how you can use ChannelReply data to save hours typing replies. While it uses an Amazon ticket in Re:amaze, it works exactly the same way for Shopify in all three helpdesks.

Build Powerful Automations

ChannelReply’s Shopify data can also work as the basis for rules like Freshdesk automations and Re:amaze workflows. Automate a huge variety of time-consuming management tasks, such as:

  • Assigning tickets about a certain item to a specific agent
  • Notifying local support teams whenever a ticket comes in from a buyer in their country or region
  • Setting tags on specific ticket types to change how they’re processed in reports, views and rules
  • Adding private notes or sending internal emails to remind agents of procedures for specific items, regions, etc.

Here’s an example of how this data can be used in Freshdesk, which has some of the most powerful automation options in the industry:

Personalized Autoresponders

Tired of answering every message? Build autoresponders and answer common questions in your sleep!

Our ecommerce autoresponders for Zendesk, Freshdesk and Re:amaze work perfectly with Shopify. Plus, regular Zendesk autoresponders are compatible with our Shopify integration, even without any special setup.

One of the best things about our autoresponders: they work with all the custom field features we described above. You can set rules to send different replies based on, say, where the buyer lives, so their message is in the correct language. And you can automatically fill in details like the item title and shipping info just like for macros.

The result? Perfect personalization for truly helpful auto-replies. Never waste time answering questions like “Where’s my order?” when your autoresponder can do it for you!
