Troubleshooting

Q1: I have successfully connected to Klaviyo but I am unable to export my email to Klaviyo from Kombai.

A: Please ensure the following points are considered before exporting your template to Klaviyo:

  1. Check if you have given all the necessary permissions to the API Key. To know what permissions to give, check point 5 of Generating API key in Klaviyo.
  2. Images that are more than 5MB in size are not supported by Klaviyo. Please make sure that each of the image you have used in the Figma design is less than 5MB. For users in Premium plan and above, we recommend selecting Optimize images for deliverability under Output Image Format to optimize image size.
  3. Currently, Klaviyo only supports images with PNG, JPG, and GIF file formats. If you are using some other image format, e.g. WEBP, please convert those images to PNG or JPG before importing to Figma.
