Connect via Segment

Add Ripe as a Segment Destination to sync your customer and event data in real-time.

Connection modes

There are two ways to send data to Ripe via Segment.
  • Web (Device) mode: Your sources include additional code on your website or web app which allows Ripe to use the data you collect on the device to make calls directly to the Ripe API.
  • Cloud mode: Your sources send data directly to the Segment servers, which then translate it for each connected downstream destination, and send it on.
