Follow along with the video below, or continue reading these instructions below the video:
In Help Scout, click “Manage,” then choose “Apps” from the dropdown menu.

Follow along with the video below, or continue reading the instructions under the video.
In the “Default Mailbox” field, enter the email address of one of your Help Scout mailboxes. Your eBay, Amazon and Walmart messages will be delivered to this mailbox by default.

Click “TEST CONNECTION” once done.
Green checkmarks should appear, with “TEST CONNECTION” changing to “CONNECTED.” Click “OK” to continue. If you see an error message instead, follow the instructions provided or contact us.
