Learn how to integrate your Gorgias helpdesk with Klaviyo to manage all of your SMS conversations from inside Gorgias.
This integrations only works when recipients are in the US or Canada, as alphanumeric sender IDs cannot receive text messages.
The following guide will help you set up the Gorgias integration in a few steps. First, you’ll enable the Gorgias integration in Klaviyo. Then, you’ll set up the integration in Gorgias, which will enable a real-time sync of specific Gorgias data into Klaviyo.
How the Gorgias Integration Works
When a customer sends an SMS to a Klaviyo phone number, an associated ticket is created in Gorgias. Each subsequent message is then added as a comment to the Gorgias ticket, and any replies in the ticket from a Gorgias agent will send an SMS back to the customer.
This integration syncs ticket information from Gorgias to Klaviyo, including creation event data and when new messages are sent or received. The integration also syncs data from Klaviyo to Gorgias about SMS messages associated with the Gorgias ticket.
