Last updated at:


This article walks you through integrating with Zoho - specifically, integrating with Zoho’s CRM service. After completing this guide, you will be able to use your leads' custom property data from Zoho to personalize messages in Klaviyo.

Add the Zoho Integration

Navigate to the Integrations tab in your Klaviyo account.

Click All Integrations and type Zoho into the search box at the top of the page.

Then, click Add Integration.

Add Zoho integration to Klaviyo

Select your Zoho CRM timezone from the dropdown. This must be the same timezone as your Zoho account.

Next, add any optional fields you want to sync from Zoho in the Optional Fields input using a comma-separated list. Ensure there are no spaces between commas.

The Optional Fields input must use the API names for the fields from Zoho. Locate the API field names in Zoho by clicking on the gear in the top right-hand corner of your account Then, under Developer Space, select APIs > API Names. Click on Leads to see the field names, along with their corresponding API names.

Monitor the Zoho Sync

Allow at least fifteen minutes for the Zoho sync to complete. To confirm your integration is complete, check that the Zoho integration on your Enabled Integrations list has a green bar on the left.

Following the initial integration setup, your Zoho leads data syncs with Klaviyo once an hour.

Verify Data

Once you integrate and sync Zoho with Klaviyo, all of your Zoho leads will be imported to Klaviyo with the default customer properties, as well as any optional fields you set in the integration settings.

To verify this, create a segment of the Zoho leads using the Lead Status property. This will group all the profiles in your account that were imported from or updated with data from Zoho.

Compare the people in this segment with the leads in your Zoho account; the lists should match.

  • Email
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Company
  • Phone
  • City
  • State
  • Zip Code
  • Country
  • Lead Status
  • Email Opt Out
