Zoho Subscriptions Integration - Zoho Desk Knowledgebase

Setting up and using Zoho Subscriptions integration

Zoho Subscriptions is a comprehensive subscription management tool that handles the customer subscription lifecycle from signup to payment. Right from the moment a customer subscribes to your service/product, Zoho Subscriptions sends invoices, charges them on renewals, sends payment thank you notes, notifies you and your customers if a payment fails, retries these payments and repeats all of this over and over again, until their subscription expires. And it does all of this automatically.

The Zoho Subscriptions integration for Zoho Desk allows your customer support agents to view all the subscription information of a customer alongside their tickets. This helps your agents build a better customer conversation in Zoho Desk.

The Zoho Desk for Zoho Subscriptions integration delivers the following benefits:
  1. Create and view contact information like billing address, shipping address, etc
  2. View subscription details such as plan, subscription status, amount, and renewal date of a customer
  3. View a list of sales transactions and invoices created by the contact
