Hi, I am going to import customers with Transporter App.

 

This is the way to create a customer with a password using Shopify API.
Like this.

Create a customer with password and password_confirmation and skip sending the welcome email
POST /admin/api/2019-10/customers.json
{
"customer": {
"first_name": "Steve",
"last_name": "Lastnameson",
"email": "steve.lastnameson@example.com",
"phone": "+15142546011",
"verified_email": true,
"addresses": [
{
"address1": "123 Oak St",
"city": "Ottawa",
"province": "ON",
"phone": "555-1212",
"zip": "123 ABC",
"last_name": "Lastnameson",
"first_name": "Mother",
"country": "CA"
}
],
"password": "newpass",
"password_confirmation": "newpass",
"send_email_welcome": false
}
}

 

If Transporter App doesn't provide this feature, is there any App I can use for this?

Thank you.

Hi @Yu727,

 

Transporter app takes in CSV files, but the transporter CLI tool allows you to shape your data (from other platforms or locally) into the CSVs for upload.  Note that transporter is only available for Shopify Plus stores.

 

If you wanted another 3rd party tool, definitely check out the app store where there are a lot of options to help with the import of data from other platforms.

Thank you @Ryan 

Can I import a customer with a password using the Transporter App? It seems Excelify App has this feature.

To be honest I'm not certain of the capabilities of transporter app, but I would guess yes.  Excelify is a great solution as well, and does not require the shop to be a Plus plan.

I see.

But there are limits such as even $50/month Plan allows importing only 20k customers once.

So I chose Transporter App.
