Myer, a leading Australian department store, wanted to gain a better understanding of customers’ external spending behaviors to enhance its direct marketing campaigns.

The retailer used Mastercard Customer Data Enhancement (CDE) to segment shoppers. CDE provided insights on customers’ spending headroom, share of wallet and propensity to spend across retail categories to inform the company’s overall customer management strategy and significantly improve targeted marketing campaigns.

By using Customer Data Enhancement, Myer activated lapsing customers and drove over a 2x uplift in sales compared to previous targeting models.
