- Square Online merchants can now utilize customer data to provide a more personalized experience
- One-click Klaviyo integration particularly helpful for Square POS merchants
Square Online has announced an integration with marketing automation and customer data platform Klaviyo. Customers will be able to synchronize between the two platforms, utilizing real-time purchase history, profile properties, and catalog information to deliver personalized SMS and email marketing.
Rich Gardner, SVP of Global Strategic Partnerships at Klaviyo, said of the integration that
“storing and utilizing your customer data in a way that improves their experience is no longer a nice to have — it’s a need to have.”
Special emphasis was included in the announcement of the benefits to Square POS (Point of Sale) users. The POS software is a way of making transactions, designed both for online ecommerce selling and brick-and-mortar stores through Square’s range of card readers and registers. Klaviyo would allow all that information to be used for marketing purposes, bridging the gap between online and offline customer interactions and helping merchants create a personalized shopping experience across all channels.
This announcement comes off the heels of reports of Klaviyo making an IPO (initial public offering) later this year. The Boston-based startup has allegedly raised more than $775 million dollars to enter the stock market, and this new integration would certainly bolster its position to potential shareholders.
Rich Gardner continued, saying
“We’re excited about the possibilities this integration brings to Square sellers and to see more of these partnerships come to life as we continue to think about the relationship between physical and digital, and unifying product information across in-store and online channels”
Square Online users will be pleased to see it upgrade its marketing capabilities, especially between both online and offline communications.
