Hi Martino,

 

You can try Website Toolbox. It has Single Sign On with Shopify, can be embedded into your Shopify website or used as a standalone forum, matches your domain name, fully customizable, SEO-friendly, etc. It's extremely easy to set up.

For sure Martino, check out Answerbase which is a robust community Q&A forum that's been servicing larger brands for more than a decade....and recently released an integration with Shopify given the results that small business merchants were getting with the solution on other ecommerce platforms.  Check out some of the case studies on the site where Answerbase converts 75% of product questions to a sale...and has quadrupled the organic traffic to some stores.

 

It brings up the community Q&A content in Google search results like this:

That is a major driver of traffic from customers asking similar product questions than the ones being asked by your current customers.

 

Answerbase has a product question and answer app on the Shopify app store, which engages your audience where they live/breath right now...and then turns them into a thriving community on the community Q&A forum from there.

Third party is probably the easiest
