Introduction

What is the Zendesk Marketplace?

Zendesk Marketplace is a place to discover and install apps and bots for Zendesk Support (including Messaging), Zendesk Sell or Zendesk Chat, as well as themes for Zendesk Guide.

There are several types of apps, bots, and themes available in the Zendesk Marketplace:

  • Public apps: Public apps are built with the Zendesk App framework and can be installed directly from the Zendesk Marketplace. Public apps can be offered free of charge, or can be set up as a paid app.

  • Integration apps: Integration apps are integrations built using our REST API, and generally live in a third-party product. These apps are discoverable in the Zendesk Marketplace, but don't have components that can be installed in a Zendesk product.

  • Bots: Bots are integrations with third-party bots that can replace Answer Bot to be first responders of any channels customers want. They are free to install from the Marketplace.

  • Marketplace themes: Marketplace themes are custom themes offered by Zendesk or third party developers. They modify the look and layout of a Help Center. They can be offered free of charge, or set up as a paid theme with an option for a 14 day trial.

As part of Zendesk’s Technology Partner Program, Solutions Architect consultation may be offered to you as part of your assigned tier benefits. Technology partners can submit the request for consultation from within Partner Connect.
