Gorgias and Rivo integration explained

Gorgias helps businesses communicate with customers easily. It streamlines conversations across channels into one place and, with the Rivo integration, you can make the most out of the Loyalty program by adding the app to your helpdesk.

โœจ Integrations are available on the Starter plan and above. Check out how many apps you can integrate with your Rivo account here


In Gorgias, your customized sidebar can have all the Loyalty data for getting context on your tickets and delivering an exceptional customer experience:

You can also use the Rivo properties as variables that can be inserted into pre-made responses to populate them with Loyalty data.

If you delete the Widget and or any of its Attributes, you can always drag the element and drop it into the sidebar.

Macro variables

A macro is a pre-made response you can use to respond to your customers faster. When you set up a Rivo variable within a macro, each time you use it Gorgias will replace the variable with the Loyalty data of the customer.

The Rivo Loyalty properties need to be configured as back-office variables, so before you copy and paste the next variables, you need to get the ID of the Rivo integration in your Gorgias account.

How to get the ID?

  1. In your Gorgias account, go to Settings.

  2. Go to HTTP integration and click Rivo.

  3. Copy the integration ID at the end of the URL (e.g. https://my-account.gorgias.com/app/settings/integrations/http/12002).

Rivo variables

To display your customer's points balance


To display your customer's Loyalty status


To display your customer's referral URL


To display your customer's VIP Tier name


Common questions

Why can't I see the Rivo widget in my sidebar?

After you set up the integration, it should be executed right after a ticket is created, a ticket is updated, or a ticket message is created. If any of these events happen but you still don't see the Rivo widget in your sidebar:

  1. Open any of your tickets or customer profiles

  2. Click the โš™๏ธ button on the sidebar ('Edit widgets')

  3. Find the Rivo widget on the page and drag and drop it into your sidebar

  4. Click Save Changes.

I added the variables to my message but it didn't show the Loyalty data. Why?

There can be multiple reasons why the variables were not inserted correctly:

  • The Loyalty status of your customer is not "member". Gorgias pulls the data of Members only.

  • The variables were not added through a macro. You need to copy and past the variable(s) to a macro first

  • You didn't add the correct ID of the HTTP Integration. Read more about it here.

I can't get the app up and running. Can you help me?
