Getting a Paddle Customer ID

The easiest way to get a Paddle Customer ID is to use the Boathouse API.

If you prefer to call the Paddle API directly instead of our API send a POST request to the Paddle Customer API (using your Paddle API key) to authenticate:

Bearer: <Your Paddle API Key>
  "email": "[email protected]" // replace with the customer's email

Paddle will return a JSON object with the customer id (starts with "ctm_").

Store this id alongside the account information in your database.

  "data": {
    "id": "ctm_123example",

The Paddle Customer ID is used for the checkout process and accessing the billing portal.
