Zapier and Make both make it possible to set up the integration without a hassle and give you great flexibility to choose the features that make sense for your webshop. In addition, the platforms offer you the ability to set up automation, where a number of actions are carried out automatically without you having to lift a finger.
With the Shopify SMS integration you can:
Studies show that the “recovery rate” is roughly 25% with an abandoned cart SMS. This means that 1 in 4 who receive the SMS message will go back to your webshop and complete the purchase. In addition, various studies show that approximately 2 out of 3 prefer to receive updates about their order via SMS messages rather than other communication channels.
You can also apply the SMS integration internally and send information to yourself or employees via SMS when:
The above examples of external and internal use are only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what you are able to set up.
You simply select the services you want to integrate with our GatewayAPI SMS app at Zapier or Make. The two platforms offer a plethora of options – actually over 5,000 services to choose from. These include Google sheets, Gmail, Google Calendar, Pipedrive, Slack, MailChimp, Trello, Zendesk and various social media. To name a few.
Once you have selected the services you want to use, you can use the available triggers and actions and combine them in exactly the ways that make sense to you. Triggers and actions can be described as a series of predefined functions, where all the difficult coding have been done in advance.
As the term suggests, a trigger is activated when something specific happens, e.g. when a customer completes an order. You can then choose which action it shall trigger, e.g. that an SMS is sent to the customer or the owner of the webshop.
Shopify’s app at Make offers over 60 actions, which provides plenty of options to choose from. The list of triggers and actions can also inspire you to which tasks can be automated using the platform.
We recommend that you use Zapier if you have a single trigger and a simple flow, where Make is better suited for more complex automation flows, where different actions and flows are executed based on previous actions and results.
Once the accounts are created, you can set up your first integrations by following the steps in the guides below.
You can also use our pre-configured Make Shopify SMS template. The template is configured to send an automatic SMS reminder via GatewayAPI to users who have abandoned their cart.
Our pricing model is simple where you only pay for the SMS traffic you send. By default, we therefore have no setup fees or subscriptions.
