How can I store client photos in customer profiles?

I would like to store files as part of the Customer profile.  My business has before/after photos of clients.   In Customers the notes can only be text. Maybe an app exists to store files and link them to Customers?

Hi @radiantbelle!

Our Customer Fields app has a feature that allows you (and/or your customers) to upload files. These uploaded files can be accessed via the app admin, the Shopify admin, or even on your storefront.

All of the custom data collected by Customer Fields is saved into Shopify using metafields for each of your customers, and this opens up all sorts of possibilities for accessing and editing custom data. The 'file upload' feature is included in the app's "Pro" plan, and all of the app's plans offer a 14-day free trial so you're welcome to test out the app's features for 2 weeks at no cost.

 

Be sure to give the app a try and let us know if any questions come up!

Hey @AllPetkind!

You can use the Customer and Metafield objects in Liquid to display a customer's metafield values on the storefront once a customer is logged in to their account. 

 

Shopify docs:

If you're using the Customer Fields app, you can also install an embedded form on the storefront so authenticated customers can edit their metafield values.

Hopefully this helps!
