Create and edit external customer IDs

Create external customer ID 

When changing the Customer billing details of an account, you also have the option of providing the external customer ID if none exists.

You can enter any unique alphanumeric ID (string) as long as it's not already used as the external identifier of an existing Customer, in which case you'll receive the following error message: "The External ID you entered is used by another customer account. Please enter a new External ID and try again."

Edit external customer ID 

When changing the Customer billing details of an account, you also have the option of editing an existing external customer ID.

External references can be swapped for any unique alphanumeric ID (string) you wish as long as an existing customer account in the Avangate system isn't already using the same identifier.
