Targeted Segments


Reward your in-store shoppers through our Targeted Segments feature!

As an organization, you’ll be able to target specific user types by creating segments, excluding segments, and adding multipliers to tailor the giving experience for your shoppers!   

  • Example: If you have a customer segment you want to incentivize with increased giving options you can now build with drag and drop ease! (Ex. As [store], we will donate twice as much if you join our insiders program).
  • Access to Targeted Segments
