Customer Lookup

I am trying to add integration into our website to help make online order pick up easier. I am trying to look up orders by customer name. To do that I need the customer_ids. When looking at the customer api it looks like you are not able to search for customers based on their given name and family name. Am I missing something here?

Hi @jgrenard welcome to the forums!

There is no way to search customers by their names at this time; only by email and phone number. I will update this to be a feature request for now.

Hi Jeff, I’m the PM for Customers API.

Feature request noted! Apologies for the inconvenience. This is something I want to make available in the future, stay tuned.

Any updates on this?

Our workaround will probably be to add a custom field, and then copy the name field to the custom field and search that. It’s not ideal to have the maintain a separate field for this.

At this time there isn’t any update on this. Your workaround will definitely work since that is a field thats queryable. :slightly_smiling_face:
