Why Gorgias is the right choice

Built-in Shopify actions

Zendesk doesn't come with built-in Shopify actions. If you sign up for a demo, ask them about Shopify actions. We can tell you that without custom configuration ($$$), you can't make edits and returns on Zendesk.

On Gorgias, we integrate tightly with Shopify so we can pull and push information instantly from Day 1. Using Gorgias, you can respond to customers and actually resolve order requests simultaneously. Your days of tab-shuffling and copy-pasting are behind you. In Gorgias, you will find everything you need in the right place to help your customers.

Free, unlimited seats

At Gorgias, you can add as many users as you need at a $0 cost. We don’t charge per user because we know that easy access is important and that it takes a village. Whether you’re a team of 100+ or operating in a lean army of one, you can keep growing your business with Gorgias and add as many users as you need.

At Zendesk, your bill will double each time you add a member to use the platform. Each time you’re growing your team, you will have to consider the Zendesk cost.

Don’t wait months for onboarding

It won’t take you months or weeks to ramp up in Gorgias. Most of our customers complete migration in 7 days and start answering emails, chat messages, and Instagram comments.

From the first login, Gorgias is set up with the tools you need. Our integrations don’t require technical people to step in and implement custom configuration in order to make it work for your needs. We anticipate the needs of our customers, and provide multiple channels to get in touch no matter the time or place. Hear it from our customers.
“What has been really great (and different from Zendesk) is that Gorgias has allowed us to grow tremendously. It allows as many seats as needed. That is really great to be able to flex up the roles of agents as needed.

Migrating from Zendesk to Gorgias is worth the effort if for NO other reason than the simplicity of creating tickets.

This is it! Have used Zendesk and tried others, but we really need a system that is simple, robust and integrates well with Shopify. Nothing comes close to Gorgias. After the first day, we skipped the trial and went to the paid version.

Hands down the best customer support app for Shopify owners. I've used Helpscout, Zendesk and Desk.com and Gorgias beats them all. You can tell that they were built from the ground up for Shopify.

Big fan of Gorgias. Great product for a fraction of the price of Zendesk and Kustomer. Their support is super responsive, as well.

We use zendesk currently. Don’t use half the features and it’s expensive. Gorgias looks great and better integrated into Shopify.

Zendesk is overkill for 95% of Shopify merchants. I think Gorgias has come in and set a high standard.

We recently switched from Zendesk to Gorgias! My team loves it. The gorgias team helped setup a lot of the macros before the official switch, so the process was seamless. We've been on gorgias for about 2-3 months, and the team really loves it. I was also worried about the per ticket fees, but they don't count some of the automated messages. Happy to put you in touch with the team if you want more specifics!

Big fan of Gorgias after shifting from ZenDesk. We felt like ZenDesk was a bit of overkill for us - being such a large, enterprise solution - we weren't using enough of it to really warrant it. Gorgias looks and feels like Shopify, and to be honest, has what feels to be a superior integration with both Shopify and other elements, like Smile Loyalty etc, that we use regularly.
