Have you ever been hesitant to go into a car dealership for the fear of being mobbed by hungry salesmen? Bank account holders feel the same way about banks that are too aggressive with cross-selling efforts. Rather than taking a scatter-shot approach that catches customers in the crossfire, banks should target those customers who might buy the product.
What is Cross-sell?
A cross-sell is the sale of an additional product or service that is related to the primary purchase that a customer or client makes.
According to study by Temkin group, loyal customers are 5x as likely to repurchase, 5x as likely to forgive, 4x as likely to refer, and 7x as likely to try anew offering.
Role of payment data in Cross-selling
Mobile banking solutions give new opportunities for banks to reach their customers. Traditional channels such as e-mail or SMS usually lack personalization, as confirmed by the Gallup study.
Gallup study shows that 66% of customers feel that incoming offers are general in nature, with 53% of customers already owning the product being promoted.
For example, a bank can put a promotional message in the personal financial management (PFM) tool, which usually includes the possibility to add customers’ personal goals.
Banks can analyze this data and benefit from it by promoting relevant e-commerce products/merchants. Thus, offer potential customers the option to receive cash back from shopping right in their banking app.
What's in it for the banks?
Increased amount of mobile app users
Offers from leading brands prompt your customers to use the banking app more.
Higher card payment frequency
Clients are motivated to pay by card more frequently.
Loyal client base
Customers value the benefits that only their bank has to offer.
Dateio success story
Cross-selling is all about connecting with your clients and creating meaningful customer incentives. Dateio operates discount programs for banks, where the analysis of transaction data provides clients with interesting discount offers in the form of cash back when paying by card, ie without the use of coupons and loyalty cards. Its algorithms work with the most accurate anonymized datasets of customers' shopping behavior on the market. By analyzing the shopping behavior of customers based on their enriched card transactions, Dateio provides personalized promotions and bank clients save money on goods they ordinarily buy.
How does It work?
Dateio’s solution combines the benefits of payment data enrichment and cash back offers into a new and unique approach that bridges the gaps between traditional and mobile commerce. Partnering with merchants that customers encounter on a daily basis (e.g., supermarkets or gas stations) guarantees the usage and high relevance of provided offers.
The model is quite simple. The customer makes a POS or online payment. The bank sends anonymized data through TapiX API and identifies the merchant’s name, logo, GPS, and category. These datasets are used for internal analysis and put into real-life use cases. Based on the category and GPS of the transactions the clients are offered in-app personalized offers, which can be easily activated with one tap. Once the payments processed, the cash back is received by the client seamlessly on the background without any required interaction.
Bank earns money rather than spends
The retailers pay commission based on sales volume realized through the card-linked marketing platform. Part of the commission is shared back with the bank. So, not only does the bank makes the customer feels better and, save money but the bank also earns a commission on the sale.
Users will be more engaged
They will spend more time in the mobile banking app to find and activate offers from love brands and will come back again to check the cash-back status. The cash back is transferred to the account directly.
