Import customers from a CSV file

If you have a spreadsheet with your customer info, you can import it into QuickBooks all at once. Before you get started, prepare your customer list in Excel to make sure that the column titles and the order of the columns in your Excel sheet matches our example. To see how your Excel file should look, download and open this sample.

When your Excel sheet is ready, follow the steps below to import into QuickBooks:

  1. Go to Sales
  2. Select the Customers tab.
  3. Select the arrow next to New Customer > Import Customers.
  4. Select Browse.
  5. Select your excel file and Open, then Next.
  6. For each of the QBO fields on the screen, choose one of your Excel columns. This action tells QuickBooks which columns in your Excel spreadsheet get pulled into which QuickBooks field. Select Next when you have completely mapped your fields.
  7. The next page shows your data and where it's going into QuickBooks. Make sure you check the box on the left for all the items you want to import. When you're ready, select Import.
