The Shopify integration supports Shopify profiles and events being available in Sunshine for a single storefront. A profile contains the identity of a customer in a Shopify storefront. An event is a description of an activity that occurs in Shopify. Each event is associated with a profile.
Supported events for the Shopify integration include the creation or modification of customer accounts, and actions performed to an order and during checkout.
Events can be displayed in the customer context when viewing a Zendesk Support ticket. This provides a single view of information between Zendesk and Shopify. Customer context can be used, for example, to help you understand customer behavior, look at sales trends, and identify improvements to your business.
This feature is in early access and was part of the Shopify v3 integration EAP. To get started with the new integration and the Sunshine feature, complete the Shopify Events for Sunshine EAP form. Access will include a free trial of Sunshine.
To learn how to install and use the Shopify integration feature, watch the video Shopify Events for Sunshine demo.
