Conversations | Integration via tyntec Zapier App

Hi there! 

Would you like to forward your messages both ways (incoming and outgoing) to or from popular cloud-based platforms such as Shopify, HubSpot, Trello, Gmail or other apps?

This tutorial will give you some examples of how to integrate Conversations without coding, using our app in the Zapier platform.

You will need

  • An active tyntec account and tyntec API key from your Business Center
  • Sender ID or a business phone number registered with tyntec
  • A testing phone number whitelisted in the Business Center
  • A Zapier account (you need an active Trial or a professional plan with Premium Apps and multi-step Actions)

To test with Shopify:

  • A Shopify account and a store set up for testing (with enabled checkout and the phone number field enabled in the shipping address form on checkout)
  • An order created in your Shopify store using the testing phone number on checkout

To test with Trello:

  • Viber Business from tyntec
  • A Trello account (the Free Plan is sufficient)
  • A Board for storing messages in Trello and a List for a messaging channel such as ViberNote: In this tutorial, we use a Board called “Message Board” and a List called “Viber” for storing messages from the Viber channel.
  • A mobile phone with the Viber app

Usage Example: Send a welcome SMS on Shopify order

Would you like to confirm an order to your customer and welcome them? Let’s start simply with making a Zap that sends an SMS via tyntec on a paid order in Shopify.

Step One: Create a Zap and a Trigger

1. In your Zapier menu, click on the black Make a Zap button.

2. Choose your event app. Search for the Shopify app and select it. In the Trigger Event, select New Paid Order. Click Continue.
