We used Google Checkout for about 18 months before switching to Volusion. Is it possible to import those customers and orders into Volusion?

Best,

Freelap - it is a mess to import customers into V - trust me I did it and it was a mess. You can not import the passwords so you end up with all of the customers in there with no way to log into their account. I imported my customers from my old site last year and lost all of their passwords in the process.

I now have a notice on my site for former customers to check the Lost Password box and then to change their pw when they sign-on. I had thought it would be easier for emails, but it would have been better for them to sign up with a new account. If you want them for an email list it is probably better to import them to the email list directly than to the V store. Maybe I am wrong, as I was new at the time, but I just remember what a mess it was.
