Connecting Ecwid with Intercom

Being a customer communication platform, Intercom allows you to use targeted messages, bots, and real-time chat in order to onboard, engage and support your customers and thus generate more sales.

To connect your Ecwid store with Intercom, you do not need any coding skills. You can integrate both with no code by using the Zapier service where you can simply select a trigger (when something should happen) and an action (what should happen). As a result you will have an automated task, a “zap”.

Plan availability: You can use Zapier service on all paid Ecwid plans.

Here is an example of how you can automatically create new contacts in your Intercom account from the new customers in your Ecwid online store:

  1. Sign up for an account with Zapier or log in to your existing Zapier account, if you already have one.
  2. In your Zapier account, click Make a zap:
