Many of our clients do all their customer support themselves via email, which is usually the easiest way to help customers when you’re just starting out. But as your business grows, it gets harder and harder to provide great support this way. Even before you have dedicated support reps, using email can lead to miscommunication and a whole range of support problems you can’t afford.

That’s why we’re happy to announce our new partnership and integration with Zendesk, the leading cloud-based customer service software. Their intuitive, super-fast interface allows you to efficiently help your customers with whatever they need, from resetting passwords to tracking orders.

Now that Zendesk is integrated with Bigcommerce, your support reps can easily pull up order details and history to better help your customers. Just by entering the order number, your team will have all the details they need to quickly address any issues.

They’ll also have better insight into who they’re communicating with so they can provide the appropriate level of service. That gives them the ability to recognize regular customers and make a great first impression on new ones.

When you integrate Zendesk with your Bigcommerce store, you’ll get:

  • Customer data like billing, shipping and order information on Zendesk ticket pages to help solve tickets faster
  • The ability to easily navigate to additional data in Bigcommerce by clicking on customer or order numbers in Zendesk
  • Improved customer satisfaction thanks to better conversations

Why did we choose Zendesk? Their service helps provide support to more than 65 million people around the globe, and their clients have positive ratings for over 86% of their support interactions. That’s a very impressive number in the customer service industry.

It’s also a really flexible platform, works in every support channel you could want (email, phone, chat, web portal, Twitter, Facebook), and is easily scalable as your business grows. In fact, they’ve worked with Groupon from the start, growing with them from a small support team to one of the largest in the world. And their robust reporting and analytics let you see where your support process needs work so you can make improvements.

So if you’re looking for a help desk solution to integrate with your Bigcommerce store, try Zendesk for free. It’s simple to set up, and will enable you to provide world-class customer support in no time.

  • Hey James, this is a pretty old article and we do still support an integration with ZenDesk, but it is not a one-click app like most of our newer integration. There are a couple more steps associated with getting everything set up, which you can find here:

    Let me know if that doesn’t help and I’ll see if I can find a product team member who can help out. Thanks!

  • We have signed up with Zendesk, have installed their Bigcommerce app, filled out the information, however nothing seems to work. There doesn’t seem to be any type of integration. Am I missing something?
