You can manually invite customers to join your referral program from your Klaviyo lists and segments by following this step-by-step guide. Before proceeding, ensure that Klaviyo is properly integrated into your ReferralCandy account. If you haven’t done so already, follow our Klaviyo integration guide.
Set up your Klaviyo flow and email
Before sending an invitation to your customers, set up a Klaviyo flow first using the RC - Enrolled via invitation metric as the flow trigger. Follow the Enrollment via Invite Customer feature guide for a sample flow template.
You can also use ReferralCandy custom properties in your invite email template. Read more about ReferralCandy custom properties and how to use them.
Export your Klaviyo list and segments
Export a copy of your contacts from the Klaviyo list and segments you wish to invite to your referral program and download them in CSV format using the steps here.
The CSV file should follow the following format:
Column 1 should be first_name or First Name
Column 2 should be last_name or Last Name
Column 3 should be email or Email
Column 4 should be locale (optional)
Import contacts to ReferralCandy
Using the Invite Customers feature, upload the CSV file exported from Klaviyo.
Click Add Customers. This process may take time depending on the number of contacts you imported. Once done, you will see the number of customers added from the file name you uploaded.

Click the Import without invite button.
You will get the following popup message confirming that you're importing customers without sending them an invite email via ReferralCandy. Click the Add to ReferralCandy button to proceed.
