Creating A Customer

The following example Pipeline demonstrates how we can create a customer record in the Shopify store using the Create Customer Snap.

Initially, we configure the JSON Generator Snap to pass customer details in JSON format. Upon validation we see the following customer details in the output preview of the Snap.

JSON Generator Snap ConfigurationOutput

Next, we configure the Mapper Snap to get specific customer details and map them to the target columns.

Upon validation, we see the following data in the output preview of the Snap.

Next, we configure the Create Customer Snap to create a customer with the output from the upstream Snap.

Upon validation, the Snap creates the customer and we can view the customer data in the output preview of the Snap.

You can extend this Pipeline further to create orders for the created customers.
