eCommerce retailers needs a customer support platform to provide an exceptional post-purchase experiences to your customers, and many turn to Zendesk as the industry's leading conversational support platform. agnoStack adds native Zendesk support for eCommerce allowing real-time access to shipping and payment status, order and customer details, and to initiate actions such as modifying, refunding, cancelling or creating orders without ever leaving Zendesk.

Online sales are growing at a faster pace than ever, and brands have finally begun to truly embrace a customer-first approach. Consumers are more willing to buy new products via new channels and are taking chances to try new brands at unprecedented rates. And, whether it’s the Shark Tank effect, Shopify’s ease of getting started, or just a rise in entrepreneurial spirit, more people are starting more companies today than ever in the history of the world.
Last year, eCommerce sales saw a staggering 44% plus increase. Surprisingly, that surge is being led today by the SMB and mid-market, not the enterprise space - as it had been for the first 15+ years of online sales. These emerging/hyper-growth brands have overtaken large enterprise retailers in terms of their contribution toward total growth.
Agents supporting these online retailers spend most of their day playing “swivel chair” between eCommerce, customer support, shipping, payment and loyalty platforms. The explosion of online sales is being compounded by a nearly 1.5x rise in return rates. This combined hyper-growth of sales with the exponential number of post-purchase inquiries (along with crippling post-COVID labor shortages) has created the perfect storm of opportunity.
Coming up with (and producing) an incredible product, and developing an amazing online store, is only half the battle. Consumers will only remain loyal to a brand that treats what happens after their purchase as equally important to what happens before. The need for an intuitive, highly scalable, post purchase experience solution remains glaring. And AI/bots are simply not the answer - great HUMAN connections matter more than ever.
