A buyer represents your customer, the shopper who is performing a checkout and making a purchase.


A buyer can be used to perform the following tasks.

  • Display a human-readable name (display_name) for a buyer in the admin panel when browsing transactions.
  • Associate multiple stored payment methods (cards, PayPal, etc) with a single customer.
  • Initialize Embed with the buyer ID to automatically display the buyer’s previously stored payment methods, allowing for faster checkout.
