Note: We use "Program" and "Member" as label-agnostic terms to refer to any marketing you are using Buzzbassador to facilitate, whether you refer to it as an affiliate program, influencer marketing, ambassador program, referral program, creator partnerships, brand reps, partner program, etc.
At the start of 2021, we launched a new integration with Klaviyo! 🎉 This integration will allow you to automatically populate your Klaviyo lists with your members' contact information, organize them into segments based on status and performance, and even create custom, automated email flows for them. But first, you gotta get it set up!
This article will walk you through step-by-step how to integrate your Klaviyo account with Buzzbassador.

How to Set Up Your Klaviyo Integration
1. Navigate to your Klaviyo API Keys
Log in to your Klaviyo account. Then, in the top right corner, click "Account Plans"
2. Once you are on that page, click "Settings"
Now, click "API Keys".
3. Generate a new Private API Key
Once you are looking at the API Key list, click the black button under the "Private API Keys" section that says "Create Private API Key".
This will generate you a new Private API Key. Keep in mind that this API Key is like a private password, and should never be exposed to the public. For that reason, I have blurred mine out for this example.
On the Private API Key Name section, name it "Buzzbassador".
Under the Select Access Level section, select "Full Access Key". Make sure that Full Access is selected for every scope by checking that each scope row has the button filled in the "Full Access" column.
4. Navigate to Buzzbassador's Integration Settings
Once you have generated that new API key, keep that Klaviyo tab open and open Buzzbassador in a new tab or window. Once in your Buzzbassador account, click on the "Settings" icon at the left side menu to open your settings. Then, click the "Integrations" tab.
On that page, you will see the Klaviyo integration at the top. Click "Connect" (or "Edit Connection", if you're updating your credentials).
This is where you will paste your API keys in step 5 and 6, so keep this tab open.
5. Copy and Paste your Public API Key into Buzzbassador
Go back to your Klaviyo tab, on that same "API Keys" page, you will see your Public API Key -- it is a short string of random characters. Copy this key to your clipboard.
Once you have it copied, go back to your Buzzbassador Integration settings and paste that key into the "Public API Key" field.
6. Paste your Private API Key into Buzzbassador
Now that your Public API key is set, go back to your Klaviyo tab and copy your newly generated Private API Key. Again, this is the longer string of characters under the "Private API Key" column.
Once that key is copied to your clipboard, go back to your Buzzbassador Integration Settings and paste it into the "Private API Key" field.
7. Save your changes
Once both Klaviyo keys are pasted, click the "Update Credentials" button at the bottom of the pop-up to cement the new integration.
And you're good to go! Now your Klaviyo and Buzzbassador accounts should be connected.
You can also edit or disconnect your integration any time by clicking the "Edit Connection" button on the main Integrations page.
