Purpose and scope

The integration between Aphix and Klaviyo allows Klaviyo access to your product catalogue and your customers' interactions with your Aphix WebShop. Once synced and consent has been given by your customer, Klaviyo uses your customers' interactions with Aphix WebShop to build profiles. From these profiles, you use the Klaviyo platform to build targeted marketing campaigns, and measure their success. For example, you could create a marketing flow that encourages your customers to convert items in a customer's cart into a sale by sending  "Abandoned cart" emails at configurable time periods.

Our built-in configuration tool guides you through creating a link between Aphix and Klaviyo.

The purpose of this feature guide is to explain in detail how to use our built-in configuration tool to integrate Aphix with Klaviyo. 

This feature is only available as part of the Digital Marketing SmartPack. Contact our sales team for more information.

Recommendations

  • We recommend that you create a new Klaviyo account to become familiar with many of features that this integration provides, such as how to import your product catalogue, how to register customers and so on.  When familiar with its features and how they work in conjunction with your Aphix WebShop, you can re-assign the account to an existing Klaviyo account in your Klaviyo settings.

  • You may already have a Klaviyo account, which you can link with your Aphix WebShop. If you do use an existing account, make sure to use the same product codes / SKU in both systems. Using the same product codes avoids duplication in your Klaviyo account.

  • Click

    This opens a new browser which allows you to create and configure a Klaviyo account.

  • Once you click Create Account, you are guided through Klaviyo's sign up process. During this process, you are asked for business information and the sender's name and email address which will be displayed in your subscriber's Inbox. You'll need to verify the sender's email, and then your Klaviyo's account will be verified and you will be given access to its dashboard.

Add your product catalogue

Add
  • Copy the source you wish to use from the list of available sources that can be used as product feed sources. 

    The list of available sources to use as a product feed differs depending on how your WebShop is configured. For example, you may have multiple WebShops or one WebShop with multiple languages.

    . This opens your Klaviyo dashboard on the create custom source page. 

  • Enter the name of the product feed, and paste the product feed URL that you have copied from the Settings page in Aphix Management Interface.

  • Click Define Source. This creates a link between your Aphix WebShop product catalogue and the Klaviyo platform.

  • To view or configure the fields that are shared between the two systems, click on the source name. In this example, click Aphix.

  • Properties imported include product SKUs, titles, descriptions and images.

  • The price that is imported is the public-facing price listed your Aphix WebShop.

  • Click Catalog on the Klaviyo dashboard to view the products that have been synced.
