Maximize ecommerce potential with TikTok Shop integration



3 key takeaways

  • TikTok Shop has become increasingly popular with consumers.
  • Use the TikTok Shop Connector to integrate it with the rest of your tech stack.
  • Integrate TikTok Shop to drive efficiency and get the data you need.

No matter what side of TikTok you’re on, you’ve probably noticed the buzz around TikTok Shop. It’s gaining popularity amongst shoppers and your customers.

Despite only launching in the U.S. a few months prior, over 5 million new customers made purchases on TikTok Shop between Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year. On top of that, a recent independent study commissioned by Celigo found that 60.76% of all consumers surveyed are using TikTok to research products before purchasing.

Tapping into TikTok Shop is a smart move, but without integrating it with the rest of your ecommerce tech stack, you risk incomplete, stale data and operational inefficiency. Manual tasks in your order management, fulfillment, and accounting processes become necessary to get your data in the right place. This wastes valuable time and resources.

With Celigo’s TikTok Shop Connector, you can connect TikTok Shop with the rest of your ecommerce tech stack to streamline your operations, enhance visibility, and elevate the shopping experience–all to deliver better customer experiences. Let’s explore the benefits of integrating TikTok Shop, common use cases, and how it works.
