How to Import Customer Addresses to Magento 2 Without Data Duplication (Remove All Address Association)

- Magento 2, Our extensions

Importing Customer Addresses to Magento 2 is associated with a duplication issue. Since they don’t have exact IDs, Magento stores all the information that you provide via an import table even if this information is already available in your database. When you update customer data regularly, it may result in a situation when every customer account is overwhelmed with duplicated address information. Luckily, it is possible to avoid this situation. You only need to use the Improved Import & Export extension to import Customer Addresses. The module lets you import a Customer Addresses file ignoring all addresses available in your Magento database. You will no longer need to delete duplications manually every time the import process is complete. Follow our Developer’s Cookbook to discover more Magento 2 tips.      Continue Reading
