We rent out to companies. How do I track them as customers?

Option A: 
If you rent out to companies, add them as Customers. First Name can be left blank. The last name becomes the company name. Essentially, all your companies will be listed as “customers”.

Option B:
If you have multiple contacts at the same company, these contacts should be added as Customers. You can then categorize the contacts/Customers into Customer categories. Each category is a customer. This is a great approach when there are only a few dozen companies who you deal with.

Categories can be configured from Settings → Customer Settings → Customer Categories. Each company will be a category.


Now when adding Customers (contacts at a company), make sure to choose the correct category. Based on the category (company), you can:

  • View Customers by a company (Customers → ‘Edit’ icon on top right of the table → Customize View to show Category)
  • Run reports based on companies (More → Reports → All Customers → Category dropdown)
  • Define rules or special discounts for a particular company (More → Rules → Add a Rule → Customer Category)

How do I add a Shipping and Pickup location to an order?

Shipping locations are currently linked to the contact person (individual Customer) instead of businesses. You can enable ‘Pickup and Shipping Location’ from Settings → Company Settings → Advanced Settings.

Shipping location

This feature enables you to record locations of Customers, where you can ship the Order or where a delivery/courier service or even Customers can pick up the rental items from e.g. your storefront in a mall or franchise in another state.

How do I pull up a list of customers subscribed to emails?
