Partner data - Mastercard

Enrich your customer profiles with Mastercard data

Lexer’s CDP not only allows you to load your own 1st party data, but also enables you to quickly turn on additional data sets, to enrich your customer data. In this article, we'll look at how Mastercard data interacts with Lexer.

Mastercard and Lexer

Within Lexer Identify you can access a suite of attributes derived from Mastercard data. The Mastercard dataset provides a view of how a particular postcode area “spends” in comparison to the rest of Australia. Individual Tribes can be queried, or grouped together for easy comparison of spending habits by geography. Within Identify, we report on the percentage of a Tribe who are considered “top spenders” in a category.

Mastercard data

The Mastercard dataset gives insight on customer spend habits, relative to Australian postcodes, and covers 25 categories. These categories are:

Category Description
Automotive Retailers of petrol, used or new automotive retailers.
Computer/Software Retailers of desktop computers, laptops, software and accessories.
Decor Retailers of home furnishing.
Department Retailers of department stores.
Discount Retailers of lower cost department or dollar stores.
Education Retailers of college or university education.
Electronics Retailers of consumer electronics and appliances.
Entertainment Retailers of sporting games, concert, theatre, amusement parks.
Children/Family Apparel Retailers of clothing for the family or child-specific apparel.
Fast Food Retailers of quick-serve food.
Grocery Retailers of fresh, specialty, and frozen foods.
Home improvement Retailers of construction materials, appliances, paints, parts.
Home services Retailers of home services, cleaners, exterminators, etc.
Men’s Apparel Retailers of men’s causal, professional and formal wear.
Office Retailers of office suppliers.
Online (any) Retailers of online stores.
Pharmacy Retailers of over-the-counter medications and supplies.
Photography Retailers of camera and photography suppliers, photo editing.
Restaurants Retailers of restaurants.
Courier Services Courier/postage services.
Dry Cleaning Dry cleaning services.
Fin. Services Accounting, insurance, and legal services.
Telco/Cable Retailers of cellular and wireless phone providers.
Travel Retailers of travel agencies, tour operators, car rentals, air, hotel.
Women’s Apparel Retailers of women’s causal, professional and formal wear.

The categories are derived from the location of sale, not the contents of a customers basket. So for example, a person who shops at Coles will be in the “Grocery” category, regardless of the contents of their shop.
