Loyalty Program Management
Updated by Connor Fotsch
Leverage the integration between Friendbuy and Braze to expand your email and SMS capabilities while effortlessly automating your referral and loyalty program communications. Braze will generate customer profiles for all the opted-in phone numbers collected via Friendbuy.
- You'll need your Rest EndPoint. This can be found by going to Braze > Resources > Documentation & User Guides > API > API Overview. Use the correct REST endpoint based on which instance you are provisioned to. If you are unsure, open a support ticket or use the table provided on the API overview page to match the URL of the dashboard you use to the correct REST Endpoint.
- Confirm your API-Key. In your Braze account, go to Settings > API Keys. A REST API key is required with every request to the Braze API. The API Key gives you access to your data for a workspace.
- Log into your Friendbuy account and go to Developer Center > Integrations tab > click on Add integration on the Braze integration card.
- Paste your REST Endpoint, and your API Key in the provided fields.
- Click Install Integration....
- Go back into your Friendbuy account and refresh the page to confirm the Braze integration has been successfully installed. A blue checkmark and success message will appear on the card confirming installation.
How customer data is sent to Braze
Customer data collected in your referral program will be added to the respective Braze profile after a customer interacts with your referral program widgets. Important to note, customer data will only be sent to Braze if the customer opts-in through the referral widget by selecting the opt-in boxes.
For example, if a customer enters both their email and phone number in the widget but only checks the opt-in box for SMS marketing (and leaves the email marketing opt-in box unchecked), then only the phone number will be sent to Braze. If a customer submits their contact information without either opt-in box checked, customer data will not be sent to Braze since consent was not collected.
The opt-in checkboxes are required to collect consent from the customer indicating they would like to receive additional emails and/or SMS messages from your company. See an example referral widget below:
