The Shopify Gorgias app is an omnichannel customer support platform designed specifically for e-commerce businesses and integrates easily with all Shopify stores. The app offers a wide range of tools and features to improve and optimize customer support. It integrates all possible communication channels through which customers can get in touch with a company - including email, Facebook, SMS and live chat.

In addition, the app is directly connected to the company's sales data so that customer data can be displayed during communication. Features also include the ability to process orders, subscriptions and refunds directly from the helpdesk, as well as automation features for frequently asked questions.
