Postscript

Updated 6 days ago by Romain Lapeyre

Postscript is an SMS marketing platform for Shopify merchants.

How it works

Enabling the integration allows Postscript to create SMS tickets inside Gorgias. When support agents respond to the ticket in the Gorgias interface, the responses will be sent out via the same SMS number that the initial message came through.

When the ticket is closed in Gorgias, if the customer replies to a Postscript ticket within 24 hours, the old ticket will be reopened. If however, you receive a response from the customer after this time frame, a new ticket will be created!

Setup instructions

This integration requires you to have a Postscript account
  1. Copy credentials from Gorgias, from Settings > Rest API
  2. On your Postscript account, go to Integrations > Gorgias and paste your credentials
  3. Save

And that's all - your Postscript account is now integrated into Gorgias! You can review it under Settings > Integrations > HTTP.

Please bear in mind that, if the reply isn't older than 1 day, a new ticket for that reply will not be created.

Frequently asked questions

  1. What does "Auto-Create Tickets" mean?
    This option creates a new Gorgias ticket for every customer that replies to your Postscript number. Disabling this option allows you to manually choose which responses get created as Gorgias tickets via the Postscript responses interface.
  2. Can I create SMS tickets from Gorgias?
    Unfortunately, customers must first text your Postscript number to start an SMS Gorgias ticket. You cannot start an SMS conversation with a customer from Gorgias.
  3. Can auto-reply rules be applied to Postscript tickets?
    No, as of now. But rules with other actions as tag/assign etc. will work properly!
  4. We've noticed that the email signature is also included in replies to Postscript tickets, is there a way of removing this?
    Since the channel for Postscript tickets is email, the email signature is also included in your response. The only way of removing this is by manually deleting the signature.
  5. Can GIFs and images be pulled in Postscript tickets?
    Your customers are able to send images/gifs via SMS and those will be visible in Gorgias! Please note that images can be sent one way as of now, so you will receive images sent from customers, but cannot reply with an image just yet.
  6. Is it possible integrating multiple Postscript accounts into a single Gorgias account?
    Yes! Postscript now supports multiple accounts integrated into Gorgias. For differentiating tickets coming from a specific store, you can use rules that would tag tickets based on the subject line, as the store name will be pulled to the subject line of the ticket.
 Please note that this integration was built by our partners and while we do support it, in case any technical issue arises, the wait time might be a bit longer than for a regular support request. Thanks for your understanding!
