How do I merge multiple customer accounts?

There are times you may end up with multiple customer accounts. You can easily merge the accounts from the Customers page.

Merging a customer will combine the following;
  • Customer payments
  • Customer addresses
  • Customer notes
  • No-sale transactions
  • Sale transactions
  • Loyalty memberships
  • Orders
  • Rent history
  • Time clock entries
Follow these steps to merge customer accounts:
  1. Navigate to Admin > Customers
  2. Search for the customer you want to merge
  3. Select BOTH customers and click the [Merge] button.


  4. Select the primary account you want the second account to be merged into.
    Example: If I want the account number CA004000001 to be Bob Barkers only account. I would then select CA004000001.




  5. If you want to preview the changes beforehand, keep the DryRun checkbox checked then click the [Merge] button.
    To make the changes permanent, uncheck DryRun and click the [Merge] button.
