  4. 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.

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 and verify data

Allow at least fifteen minutes for the Zoho sync to complete. To confirm your integration is complete, check that the Zoho integration in your enabled integrations list (found under Account Name > Integrations) has a green bar on the left.

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

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.

  1. In Klaviyo, navigate to Audience > Lists & Segments.
  2. Click Create List/Segment and choose Segment
  3. Give your segment a descriptive name and any tags you'd like
  4. Set the segment definition to: Properties about someone > Lead status > is set.

  5. Click Create Segment
  6. Compare the people in this segment with the leads in your Zoho account; the lists should match.

Zoho metrics

Unlike other integrations, there is no viewable metric from Zoho, but Klaviyo does sync the following information for each Zoho lead:

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

Contact, channels, and information sections of a profile in Klaviyo with customer property lead status set to Lost Lead

This information is viewable in each Klaviyo profile synced from Zoho. To view all Zoho leads at once, you can use the Lead Status segment discussed above.


You've now integrated with Zoho and reviewed your synced data.
