Hot off the Keyboard
Respond to post sales questions from your buyers on Etsy
Wave goodbye to constantly switching between eDesk and Etsy to manage your post-sales customer queries!
We are thrilled to launch our new and improved Etsy integration, allowing seamless management of post-sales customer queries by enabling direct response to Etsy queries within the eDesk platform. Users will now have access to Etsy order data in eDesk and can use message templates, smart snippets and AI automations. This empowers agents to provide contextual responses that resolve customer queries faster with increased personalisation for improved. customer satisfaction.
How it works: Once your Etsy store has been connected, eDesk will automatically import your Etsy data directly into your eDesk account. Now when a post-sale query from Etsy comes into eDesk, agents will see the relevant order data directly on the right-hand side of the ticket. So your agents can reply to your customers directly from eDesk, with all the relevant context at hand.
If a pre-sales query does convert to a sale, you can then attach an order number to the eDesk ticket so you can manage the conversation from within eDesk.
