A simple list of customers is not always enough to meet your business needs. Contacts is a feature that allows you to fill in contact information for alternative contacts associated with a given customer. It is by no means necessary to have alternative contacts for your customers, but it makes sense in cases where the product is sold through a partnership or the customer has contacts who wants a copy of the invoice and other special cases.
A contact has to be marked as one or more of the following:
Invoice To: A copy of the Invoice email is sent to contact Primary Email
Delivery To: Delivery address from contact is used and appended to parent customers' invoices
GLN Contact: The contact is a GLN contact
OVT Contact: The contact is an OVT contact (Finnish GLN)
Your Reference: used for adding a reference from the customers' party to the invoice
A contact can only be created as the child of an existing customer. Contacts can't be subscribed to your products or have a payment method associated with them.
