This help file will show you how you can easily start automating Magento feedback requests in your eDesk account.
Before you start
- eDesk Feedback is available as an Add-On. To find more information, click here.
- You’ll need an Admin login to eDesk. If you don’t have an Admin login, you can request one from an Admin user within your business.
- You'll need a Magento seller account. To find out more about this, click here.
01 How does it work?The Magento Feedback integration allows you to set up eDesk to automatically request reviews on Magento when a customer purchases from your business. All you need to do is set up rules that determine when and under what circumstances the feedback request is sent, and you'll write the feedback message that will be sent to your customer. Then eDesk does the rest. Easy!
When your customers respond to the feedback request and write a review, the review is left on your Magento webstore.
02 How do I connect eDesk with Magento?Connecting Magento to your eDesk account is a straightforward process. Simply follow the instructions below:
