Zendesk vs. Gorgias

Try Gorgias for free.

A stronger Shopify integration

Gorgias is a Shopify Plus technology partner designed for Shopify stores. Unlike Zendesk, with Gorgias you can:

  • Display customer information pulled from Shopify and other integrated apps, alongside the tickets (ReCharge, Smile, Yotpo, etc.)
  • Include Shopify variables in macros with only one click (tracking number,  shipping date etc.)
  • Cancel, refund, duplicate, edit notes, update shipping info, create gift cards and more all from Gorgias!

Manage all of your information in one place. No need to bounce between tabs and copy paste order info!

Maximize your productivity with automation and integrations


Combine the data pulled from Shopify with Gorgias rules to set up automatic and personalized auto-responders to those "Where is my order" messages.


Using Shopify data in rules, you can automatically sort, tag and assign your tickets based on their topic and attributes. If a customer has spent more than $500 or placed more than 10 orders, tag them as VIP and assign the right agent.


Gorgias integrates with 20+ apps: ReCharge, Smile.io, Yotpo etc.

See ALL features

All your channels in one app, not one app per channel

With Zendesk, you need different apps to respond to customers. As a result, customers need to repeat themselves when they switch channels.

Manage all your support in one app with Gorgias and get a complete history of the conversation across all channels, including live chat, Facebook Messenger, and social media comments. You can even hide, like and reply to social comments from Gorgias.

Unlimited agents

Do you have part-time agents? Do you want your entire team to be able to check out tickets?

Stop paying for user seats and pay on productivity. Gorgias’ offer unlimited agents and admins.

Convert your support team into a profit center using revenue statistics

With Gorgias, start measuring the impact of chat on sales and see how much money you team is generating from support.

Reward your agents on customer conversion and revenue generated by pre-sale tickets.

Gorgias is an always-improving app that gains new features on a monthly basis. We are agile and ship features according to our user feedback and requests.
