Modify customer

If there is any change in a customer's data, such as address, card or account email, it is possible to make this change through the Customer API or our SDKs.

In the table below we describe all the attributes that can be modified. To make the change, send a PUT with the customer_id and the attributes you want to modify to the endpoint /v1/customers/{id} and execute the request or, if you prefer, use one of the SDKs below.

Important
If you don't have the customer_id, follow the steps described in the section Search customers to get the information. Also, the email field can only be modified if the customer does not already have an associated email.
