Leading Ecommerce Merchants Rely on Pipe17
High volume sellers like these are already realizing order operations success on TikTok Shop.
“We easily launched and integrated our new TikTok Shop with our entire omnichannel order operations technology stack,” explains Matt Pierce, director of ecommerce at RipNDip. “Pipe17’s deep knowledge of the TikTok environment really helped us accelerate the process of connecting everything including our existing fulfillment centers and ERP.”
“As an early adopter of TikTok Shop, we were excited by its potential but concerned about the potential impact on our order operations,” states Jeff Livingston, Vice President of Federici Brands LLC - Color Wow. “Thanks to Pipe17 we are now seamlessly processing orders from our TikTok Shop through to fulfillment and immediately reconciling them with our ERP.
Pipe17’s onboarding team was great to work with and they got us up and running much faster than we anticipated.” “We were impressed with the Pipe17 team as we worked to get Wovenbyrd’s TikTok Shop live,” says Jake Bjorseth, CEO of Trndsttrs, a TSP network agency. “It can be an arduous process integrating brands into TikTok Shop seamlessly, but Pipe17 has delivered efficiently and quickly for even the most complex integrations.”
