Ecommerce CRM integrations
To unlock the full potential of ecommerce CRM software, we integrate it with other systems you use for ecommerce operations that provide critical customer data.
We connect CRMs to ecommerce websites or online stores built on platforms like Magento, Shopify, or WooCommerce to capture comprehensive data on customer behavior and track each customer’s journey and lifecycle.
By integrating an ecommerce portal with your CRM system, you can track customer interactions in real-time, create personalized portal content for each customer, and get critical data for customer behavior analytics.
The ecommerce ERP-CRM integration provides synchronized supply and demand data generation, unifies customer-facing and back-office operations, and establishes a single source of truth.
A CRM linked to a brand’s social media channels can track key customer-related social media metrics, log new customer messages from different channels in real-time, and enable social listening for getting direct customer feedback from comments and mentions.
Integrated into CRM, customer data analytics tools deliver insights into customer behavior, predict and mitigate churn, and help create targeted marketing campaigns to ensure better customer service, optimized customer journeys, and maximized LTV.
We can integrate preferred payment gateways into your CRM to help you streamline payment processing, manage customers’ payments within a single system, instantly sync incoming transactions, and provide you with a greater visibility into your financial and marketing performance.
Email & messaging services
Once your CRM is integrated with email and text messaging services, you can create mass email, SMS, and push campaigns, deliver automatic order status updates, send verification codes and notifications triggered by customers’ actions, and update customer data.

Ecommerce CRM selection guide
This step-by-step guide outlines important aspects that digital retailers should consider to pick the right CRM tool.
Determine your objectives
First, establish the business goals you want to achieve with ecommerce CRM software. This will give you the initial vision of a suitable solution for your online store.
Choose features & functionality
Opt for platforms containing features that align with your goals and existing workflows. To avoid overpaying for unnecessary features, we recommend going for a platform that allows upgrades to more advanced plans as businesses expand.
Evaluate CRM usability
When you’ve narrowed down your search to a couple of platforms, look up their demo videos on the internet or book a demonstration with CRM providers. This way, you can get an idea of their user interfaces, design, and ease of use. Companies new to CRM should prioritize vendors that offer training and support.
Assess the integration potential
Find out what third-party integrations each CRM platform supports so that you can connect your ecommerce website and other vital business applications to CRM and create a consolidated ecommerce ecosystem.
Match your budget with CRM pricing
After determining the amount of money you are ready to spend, check if CRMs you consider offer suitably priced packages with users, features, and free or paid connectors.
Test the solution
Many CRM platforms are available for a free trial, so take advantage of this option before making the final decision to see how the solution fits your business processes and requirements in practice.
