Hi there, @communityoil.
You can use your QuickBooks Online (QBO) report to get the information you need. I'll guide you on how.
To export the report, select the Export's icon drop-down arrow between Print and Settings. Then, choose either Export to Excel or Export to PDF.
For more tips while running basic reports in QBO, you can open this article: Run reports in QuickBooks Online. The same resources give you details on how to memorize, print, and email reports.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you again. If you have any other questions while getting your customers' contact list, feel free to add a comment below. Keep safe!
Great - spot on! Thank you. But onward: One of the optional columns in Customer Contacts is Customer Type. I can get this column heading onto the report. But I cannot find where I can populate this column with my data. There does not seem to be a slot in New Customer or Customer data Edit for this info. I would like to utilise Customer Type column. Please advise. Hoping for one of your superb responses here.
Thank you for getting back to the thread, @communityoil. I can help you customer types column in QuickBooks Online.

I'll be around if you need anything else or if you have further clarification about customer types. Have a good one!
Thanks for responding. However, I have no Customer Types on the Customer screen unless I'm missing something. So I cannot find anywhere to enter a customer type against any customer. Going back one line in your response, I have not even got Get Paid & Pay. Am I in the same software as you? (QBO)
Thanks for getting back to us and for sharing some clarifications, @communityoil.
The option to add a customer type is only available in the US version of QuickBooks Online (QBO).
As an alternative, you can look for a third-party app that has the feature you need. Simply hover to the Apps menu inside your QBO and search for an app from there.
Furthermore, I can see having this feature can aid in you seamlessly managing your business. I recommend sending your feedback to our Development team. This way, they can review your opinion and might consider adding it in future updates.
Additionally, I've added this article that can guide you in case you want to learn how to combine your customers in QBO: Merge duplicate accounts, customers, and suppliers in QuickBooks Online.
You can always count on me if you have any other questions about managing your customers in QBO. I'll be more than happy to help you anytime. Have a good one!
