How to Integrate Tidio With Zapier
In this article, we will show you how to integrate your Tidio account with the Zapier tool that will allow you to send the data from Tidio to your chosen application.
Before you start the integration
- The Zapier integration is an internal part of our Chatbots editor. Zapier is available as one of the actions and can be added to any automation you’ve created.
- Most Zaps send out data collected during the chat to other, 3rd party apps.
When to use Zapier with Tidio?
This integration will save you time by performing repetitive tasks for you. You can automate workflows which previously had to be done manually with the connections called – Zaps
With Tidio as the Trigger for Zaps, you’ll never have to export contacts collected through the Tidio from chat manually again.
Examples of the Zapier integration with Tidio
Create a lead in the CRM of your choice
With the Zapier integration, you can make sure every valuable contact will be sent to your CRM regardless of it being integrated internally in Tidio!
There is a wide variety of CRMs available out there. Now, you can automatically send contacts and leads to every one of them, as long as they are available in Zapier.
What is important is that it will happen automatically, as a part of your automation you use to gather the visitor data.
Get an email notification for every incoming message
If you value each and every message you receive from your customers, you don’t want to miss on a sales opportunity and want to be extra sure you get the message no matter where you are – use the Zapier integration to be notified about each
Improve customer service in your Shopify store
Tidio integration with Zapier allows you to additionally automate and track the usage of Shopify-specific bots ( Shipping Zones and Check Order Status bots).
While both of them provide you with great value by answering your visitor’s important questions in no time – they can give you even more insight into your business condition and opportunities.
Shipping Zones Bot is a great indicator of where your potential users are. Keep track of locations you are receiving a lot of questions about and consider offering your delivery right there. You can do that by creating a Zap after the bot has been launched and then sending the information to your email or Google Sheets spreadsheet.
Check Order Status, however, is an excellent way to see if you offer fast enough shipping. If you receive a lot of questions about the order status, you might need to work on how fast your products are delivered to your customers. Just add a “Send to Zapier” action to your bot and from there analyse the number of inquiries in the tool of your choice connected with Zapier.
