Customer entities hold information about the people and businesses that you sell to. They're related to addresses and businesses.
Customers are the people and businesses that you sell products in your catalog to.
Paddle automatically creates customers for you as part of the checkout, or you can create and manage them using the Dashboard or API.
Customer entities hold information like:
- Who you're billing
- What their email address is
- Whether they've opted-in to marketing from you
Customers have two sub-entities:
- Addresses, which hold information about customer billing addresses
- Businesses, which hold information that you need when working with a business
