Work With Shopify Actions

  • PDF

Give your Support heroes a true command center for getting work done without jumping back and forth between Shopify and Gladly. If you’re using Gladly’s integration with Shopify, Agents can cancel orders, edit order notes, initiate order refunds, issue discounts, and more in Gladly.

Actions Overview

  1. Actions must be activated on the Shopify configuration page.
  2. A Customer's Profile in Gladly is linked to the Shopify Profile.
  3. Every time an Agent views the Customer's Profile in Gladly, all of the latest Customer information is automatically retrieved from Shopify, including available Actions.
    • Gladly uses the Customer's email address and/or phone number to match a Customer in Shopify.
    • If automatic sync fails, a manual lookup is available.
  4. Gladly displays the Actions as buttons in the Orders card in the Customer's Profile, menu selections in the Gladly + icon, or both.
  5. When an Agent selects an Action, Gladly instructs Shopify to perform the Action.
  6. When the Action has been completed, the Customer's Profile information and available actions are refreshed.
  7. A summary of the Action performed is logged to the Conversation Timeline.

Activate Shopify Actions

Activate Actions in the Shopify configuration page. All existing Shopify Action features like Edit Notes, Cancel Order, Refund Order, and any future enhancements will not appear if this is not activated.

When Actions is activated, proceed to activate/deactivate which Actions your Agents can perform in Gladly without going to Shopify.
