Josh -

Kounta has a  simple to use interface that allows you to add new Contacts to your Kounta system.

  4. Select Add a new contact.

Once added you can click the cog symbol and add more information if required.


You can also import lists long lists of customers using a spreadsheet (CSV).

To get the import CSV template, add contacts to it and re-imports it by:

    Hi Josh

    Customer Access : Transaction History

    Do you think it will be useful for customers to be able to login to customer history only! In environments where customers would like to view online there purchase history only. This feature may create excessive demand on the DB.

    This request came from a group of schools wanting to monitor their children's purchase patterns?

    What are your business application thoughts around here? Would Paypal cover this?

    Presently no, but when we revisit user permissions we will be separating alot of the information out for this kind of reason.

    You will be able to limit them to REPORTS though and a new there is a new report coming soon that will help for getting spend patterns in this regard.
