Our custom fields are snippets of customer and order info that you can use in advanced support tools. For example, here’s a Zendesk macro with ChannelReply custom fields:

Support Walmart, eBay, Amazon & More on One Screen

Our integrations with eBayAmazon, Back Market, Newegg and Shopify all work similarly. You can answer customer messages, see buyer and order details, use custom fields / variables to speed up replies, and more. All that in the same helpdesk where you manage Walmart support!

Plus, your helpdesk will have its own integrations. The specifics depend on which one you use, but here are a few that you can almost always connect:

  • Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce and other store builders
  • Email
  • Phone support
  • Live chat
  • Social media like Facebook and Twitter

If you’re supporting all these channels separately, you have no idea how much time you could be saving right now. Combine ChannelReply with a good helpdesk and get your free time back!

How Do I Start?

If you don’t have an account yet, start your free trial to begin. Our setup walkthrough will guide you through every step of the process.
