I have customers from an other shop system I need to import into Magento. Those customers come as SQL table.
I found this old question. Where clockworkgeek advices to import the user using Mage function:
$newCustomer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer'); $newCustomer->setFirstname('Foo') ->setLastname('Bar') ... // Set all the various details here ->save();
Since this is from 2010 I wonder: Is this still a legit way?
In other projects I have worked with AvS_FastSimpleImport. Would that be the preferred method?
