A little bit about us :
We're on a mission to simplify the everyday lives of consumers. We believe post-purchase is a critical phase of the customer journey.
That's why we created Narvar - a platform focused on driving customer loyalty through seamless post-purchase experiences that allow retailers to retain, engage, and delight customers.
If you've ever bought something online, there's a good chance you've used our platform!
From the hottest new direct-to-consumer companies to retail's most renowned brands, Narvar works with Levi's, Estee Lauder, Coach, TUMI, and 500+ other brands.
With offices in San Francisco, London, and Bangalore, together we've served over 306 million consumers worldwide across 5 billion interactions, 38 countries, and 50 languages.
Pioneering the post-purchase movement means navigating into the unknown. Our team thrives on this sense of adventure while nurturing a mindset of innovation.
