The Power of Zendesk Customization for Shopify
Elevating Customer Support for Enterprise Retail with agnoStack's new Elastic Path Integration Provider
As all retailers know, providing exceptional customer support and post-purchase experience is a key differentiator for success. As eCommerce platforms like Shopify continue to scale, enhancing customer support experiences becomes paramount, especially for enterprise retailers. With Shopify Premium for Zendesk, agnoStack is excited to unveil a transformative solution that caters to the unique needs of Shopify Plus and general enterprise merchants using Shopify.
With the brand new Advanced Customization capabilities of agnoStack, retailers can now take their Zendesk experience to a whole new level. The game-changing synergy between Zendesk Commerce, Shopify Enterprise, and agnoStack's Advanced Customization capabilities powered by Elastic Path Composer.
Customer experience doesn't stop at checkout!
According to recent Qualtrics Research, "73% of consumers say Customer Experience is an important factor in their purchasing decisions" and noted: "happy customers are more than 5x as likely to repurchase, 6x as likely to forgive AND 8x as likely to try other products/services"!
As noted in Shopify's most recent Global Ecommerce Sales Growth Report, global ecommerce sales are expected to total $5.8 trillion worldwide in 2023. This number is expected to continue growing over the next few years, proving that ecommerce is becoming an increasingly lucrative option for businesses. It also marks an 8.9% annual increase—the second-fastest global ecommerce sales growth rate in the forecast period between 2023 and 2027.
Online sales are expected to continue rising and take a larger piece of the retail pie. By 2027, it’s estimated that world retail ecommerce sales will exceed $8 trillion.
Shopify recently released their Summer '23 Edition (twice-annual showcase of latest products and innovations) with over 100+ updates - including AI-infused, built-for-commerce magic! These updates allow Shopify merchants to be more productive, creative, and powerful than ever before—ushering in a new era of commerce full of brand new possibilities.
entrepreneurs are heroes. And every hero needs a sidekick
Sidekick is a "first-of-its-kind, AI-enabled commerce assistant" that superpowers business owners on Shopify - purpose-built to answer common questions as they scale their business. Merchants can task Sidekick with things like:
- “Set up a discount for my holiday sale.”
- “Help redesign my store to feel more like summer."
- “What are my best-selling products?”
- “Walk me through a tutorial on preparing an email campaign.”
Merchants are always looking for new ways to grow their businesses - especially in enterprise retails. One of the best ways to do that is to expand their product offerings, but sourcing new products and taking on the risk of buying inventory up front can be a challenge.
Shopify Collective is a new low-cost, low-risk way to increase business-to-business (B2B) sales. Merchants can now source new products from brands they love on Shopify that will ship directly to the merchant’s customers.
As merchants truly scale their enterprise commerce businesses, many also grow the number of platforms and channels they use to sell products. 42% of online sellers operate through four or more marketplaces and we think this will continue to expand well beyond Enterprise.
Managing these additional sales channels adds complexity, and merchants often need separate business processes or apps for each marketplace to handle orders, fulfillment, inventory, and product listings. Shopify's new Marketplace Connect provides a unified experience for merchants to sell on all the biggest marketplaces—like Amazon, Walmart, and eBay - while connecting, managing, and fulfilling every order directly from within Shopify.
Shopify Checkout is seen by many consumers and brands as the best in the world, and a recent report from a Big 3 global consulting firm confirms this. That study revealed that Shopify Checkout has a 15% higher conversion rate on average compared to other leading ecommerce platforms.
This is tremendous news and builds on the excitement that in response to strong demand from enterprise retailers tracking the success and scale of the Shop Pay buyer network, Shop Pay will be available to enterprise retailers not on Shopify - opening access to Shopify's accelerated checkout to the biggest brands, even if they’re not on Shopify.
Zendesk has long been recognized as a powerhouse in customer support solutions. Its flexibility allows businesses to adapt their support processes to match their unique workflows and requirements. With agnoStack's new Advanced Customization, retailers can further tailor their customer support experiences, ensuring that every interaction reflects their brand values and customer-centric approach.

For businesses operating at an enterprise level, Shopify Plus offers a comprehensive suite of tools designed to manage high-volume sales, customize online storefronts, and implement advanced features that cater to complex operations. However, as enterprises evolve, the need for customized support solutions becomes more pronounced. This is where agnoStack's partnership to bring Elastic Path Composer to customers through the new Integration Provider steps in to provide an unparalleled support ecosystem.
At the core of this collaboration is agnoStack's advanced customization capabilities and Elastic Path's Composer iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service) solution dedicated to commerce.

This means reducing the complexities and costs associated with orchestrating and managing composable solutions. With Elastic Path Composer, retailers can enjoy streamlined integration workflows tailored to the intricacies of enterprise retail, accelerating time-to-value, and providing a seamless bridge between data, systems, and exceptional customer experiences. Composer represents more than just an iPaaS; it's the commerce-intelligent iPaaS that revolutionizes how retailers approach integration and sets a new standard for agility and efficiency.
