How It Works
With Loop & Gorgias working together, you can create a seamless support experience by placing all returns data right inside your Gorgias admin. Stay focused and close tickets faster by viewing refund status, shipping status, return reasons, and more in the same window you use to talk to customers.
To activate the Gorgias integration, you will use an API Key available on Loop Plus. If you are on Loop Plus, follow the instructions below.
If you are on Loop Basic or Loop Pro and would like to use the Gorgias integration, email us at email@example.com for more information on upgrading to Loop Plus.

GORGIAS AND LOOP ARE NOW INTEGRATED!
The current version of the integration will update return data when the following trigger events happen in Gorgias: a ticket is created, a ticket is updated, or a ticket is responded to.
To update your returns data manually, simply add an internal note on any open or closed ticket, for example: “Update”. This will refresh your returns data with the most up-to-date information.
We will be updating this integration in the near future with improvements and recommendations from our brands, so please let us know of any feedback!
