Best Practice for Shopify Markets + Klaviyo

Hello People,

I have found this post: 

The recommendation here is to run multiple stores + Klaviyo accounts… Shopify Markets is in Beta now, the benefit is to sell to multiple markets from one store. Therefore, the recommendation seems to be a bit outdated, since the benefit of Shopify Markets is to sell internationally from one single store. As far as I understood, it is more ore less the same technology and options Shopify offers today but bundled differently. 

We currently run our store in EN but are about to add DE as a second language. Customer marketing+forms and so on has to be bilingual too. 

Is there a Best Practice approach how to run (lists, flows, forms, content, ...) in multiple languages without unnecessary overhead?

Thanks!

I’ve also got a number of clients asking for this feature. Any update from Klaviyo would be welcome.

The best solution I’ve found so far is to create a custom product catalog, together with custom tagging of customers by the locale Shopify designates. This has a bunch of cons though, and is not that simple to get off the ground. For example, you generally have to use custom product blocks instead of the built in ones, to be able to access localised pricing information contained within a custom product feed.

This post from the Klaviyo Developer Blog explains some different approaches, but they all have cons attached: https://medium.com/klaviyo-developers/deep-dive-internationalisation-the-product-catalog-f8f240fb1954

Im also curious now

Hi Klaviyo Team

Still no update on this topic, even it was mentioned by you guys on this thread?

Very much needed to have a solution here.

update? or at least is there a planning?

Whats the update on this?

Is there already progress on the integration with Shopify Markets. 

We are wondering how to translate fields in the popup-form for out Markets Store, which has 3 languages enabled (NL, DE and EN). 

Best,

Hi @Brian Turcotte 

Sorry to keep nagging. But any update yet? 😁 We just transitioned to Shopify Markets and have deactivated emails for all subscribers outside our main market. I’m about to go through all flows, blocks, customers etc to get up to speed for all subscribers again.

Would rather wait a month or two if you have a solution coming up :)

I’m looking very much forward to this feature as well.

Any update on the expected release date? 😊

We are also looking to utilise Shopify Markets but with different TLDs for our markets. Ie. we have .co.uk for our UK parent site. And then .com for our US and Canadian site, .au for our AUS account and so on. Therein lies an issue with Klaviyo only allowing one sending domain per account.

You guys can try this app https://apps.shopify.com/multiple-google-shopping-feeds. It has an integration with Klaviyo (and other platforms such as Google, Fb, pinterest).

It’s made to create multiple feeds and it’s built for Markets. Seems to work pretty well so far.

Looking forward to see the solution and I have some bigger project i had to pause, so i really hope that the Q3 is gonna stick.

Hi @peanutbutter!

 

I’ll make sure to update the thread when we know more, but this is a very interesting idea! 

 

I haven’t heard of this exact use case, but here’s an example of someone using liquid to implement a unique automation, so I know others are thinking similarly:


If you do try this custom method, I’d love to hear how you plan to attack it and if it works out.

 

Thanks,

Brian

+1 on this

 

In the meantime @Dov I am thinking in using liquid to modify the subfolders in the products and collections URLs to try to send users to the correct market. 

Do you think this is possible and Is there any example of something similar that you can share?

Hi @livit,

We do have an update!

This feature is planned for development in Q3 of this year. Our product team is listening to your requests and are working hard to bring these all to life. In addition to Shopify Markets, we have a number of exciting feature releases planned for this year so stay tuned!

hi @Dov! just to double check: until Q3 of this year it won’t be possible to connect Shopify Markets with Klaviyo? Soon we will have English as a second language and I am trying to figure the best way out to send marketing emails via Klaviyo based on the customer’s preferred language.

IP address location and billing address are not an option for us. The best option would be to use the information from which shop url customers were purchasing (/de or /en). Any recommendation how we will get this to work?

 

Thanks a lot in advance,

Half a year later - any news?
Shopify is pushing Markets hard - it’s the future of Shopify, so an update would be welcomed.

Hey @heluski,

I think the two below Community post may be relevant to answering your question:

Whenever you’re dealing with different countries and different currencies, we highly recommend using multiple Klaviyo accounts with each country specific store connected with their own account for the aforementioned reasons in the above topics. 

Although nothing would be stopping you from creating specific emails that contained different pricing to be sent to a specific recipient group, keep in mind that there may be some additional ramifications in doing so. One example would be the difference in the currency conversions. Because Klaviyo only supports one currency type per account, using one Klaviyo account to market to multiple different currencies can cause some inaccuracies in reporting. 

I’ve seen cases where this was feasible within accounts, however it does take a lot of active management within the account to ensure you aren’t sending the incorrect emails to users. Additionally, there may be some a number of custom aspects you’ll want to incorporate to maintain the data accuracy such as using a custom checkout page to ensure the currency conversion is applied. 

David
