  • Abandoned series (includes cart, search, and product)

    • Used with Triggered Campaigns

  • Customers who have a category affinity for different brands or products

    • This audience can even include a division, such as men's or women's clothing

    • Used with both Promotional/Batch Campaigns and Trigger Campaigns
