How Do I Add Customers to Commerce7?

If you're just starting out, you might not need to add customers to Commerce7 and that's okay!

If you're migrating an existing database of customers from your previous system, you can either do this by bulk import via our API's, or you can add your customers manually

If you're going to manual route, we recommend pouring yourself a glass of red and getting to work :)

How do I manually add my customers?

To manually add a customer record to Commerce7, navigate to customers > customers in the admin panel and click "add customer". 

 

 

The base requirement needed to add a new customer in Commerce7 is an email address. We use an email address as the unique identifier for contacts in Commerce7. 

 

 

As you can see from the steps above, it might take some time to manually add all your customer records in Commerce7 - so if you have a large number of customer records you'd like to move migrate over, it's best to use our API to do a bulk import. 

 

How do I import Using Commerce7 API's?

As long as you're able to export your contact records from your previous ecommerce partner or from their current location, you will be able to import them into Commerce7 using our APIs.
