Extending Customer Data Tables

Hi All,

I'm new to the Shopify platform and am curious if anyone knows whether or not it is possible to extend the customer data tables to store additional customer information.  Our company had decided to move ahead with the regular Shopify platform (versus Shopify Plus).  I have tried doing some searching online but the only information I have really found was the ability to add metafields but that looks to be more related to product data rather than customer data. 

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

Hi DMast,

 

Just stumbled upon your post and was curious to see the answer...

 

So a quick google leads here:

https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/products/metafields

 

which leads to the app store here:

https://apps.shopify.com/search?q=metafields

 

I would say be very careful with customer information being stored using an app... check where the data will be stored, who has access, what policies they have in place etc.
