You might have already tried using triggers to automatically send messages to eBay or Amazon and had nothing happen. Don't worry—using ChannelReply and Zendesk as an eBay and Amazon autoresponder just takes a little extra setup.
In the default Zendesk setup, triggers send emails instead of adding a comment. ChannelReply therefore can't deliver the message, because it can only send comments. However, by following the steps below, you can use triggers to create a comment so that ChannelReply will send it.
First, you need to create a target for the trigger. Go to Admin->Settings->Extensions->Targets.
Hit “add target link" and choose “URL target” from the list.
Enter the following data:
(Note: Change “company” to your company’s Zendesk domain.)
Attribute Name: ticket[comment][body]
Here is an example:
After that, you can modify your "Notify requester of received request" trigger to send a notification to a newly created target.
To do that, just click Edit, change the action to "Notifications: Notify target" and then choose “newly created target” from the right-hand dropdown menu.
Now, when you receive a new ticket, your autoresponder will add a new comment to it and ChannelReply will deliver it to the customer.
