Add a help scout form to any part of your WooCommerce website:
Adding Help Scout to your website is now easier than ever, thanks to the plugin’s shortcode support. Add a Help Scout form to any part of your website using the shortcode [wc_help_scout_form]. These forms are easily customizable using CSS and other tools.
Quickly start a new conversation related to an order:
When viewing an order within WooCommerce, you may need to quickly contact the customer. Help Scout for WooCommerce adds an intuitive form to each order description within WooCommerce. This form allows you to contact the customer directly through Help Scout.
Customers can view conversations from “My Account” page.
Let your customers keep track of their support tickets in one easy place. WooCommerce Help Scout adds a new field to the My Account page which lets customers view and reply to conversations.
Start a conversation from a blog comment.
Sometimes, a customer may have an issue or query and may not know how to contact your helpdesk. This may result in the customer commenting about their issue on a related (or unrelated) blog post. With WooCommerce Help Scout, you can easily reply to these comments and turn them into a ticket within Help Scout.
Manage all of your customer queries via Help Scout
After setting up WooCommerce Help Scout, you can view all of your tickets, queries and customer feedback in one place. Help Scout’s great UI and effective tools allow you to easily manage, reply to and update conversations. The end result is a smooth customer service experience for the customer and the store owner.
Note: As of August 2020, you can configure only one mailbox ID for Help Scout, and once set, you should not change it to another. Else, it will give an error as the other account won’t recognise the customers associated with the first account. We are currently working on this and will update you soon about it.
