NetSuite Data Migration

When you switch to BlueSnap for your payment acceptance, you bring your existing client data, including their credit card and bank details, along with you. We work with your current provider to securely migrate your data, so you never have to handle it yourself. There's no need to recollect payment details and recreate records.

After we have imported the data into your BlueSnap account, you will receive two comma-separated value (CSV) files that contain the results of the import. No sensitive card data is contained in either file:

  • Processed data file β€” Contains a record for each client that was successfully created in your BlueSnap account. The record includes the client ID and the last four digits of their card/account number. This is the file you will import into NetSuite using the CSV Imports tool.
  • Discrepancy data file β€” Contains all client records that could not be imported. Each record include the client information and details on the error. Use this file to investigate the errors and determine if you want to fix and retry importing these records.

Create a Tokenized Payment Method in NetSuite

Before you can import your data, you must create a token that represents the payment method used for the records in your processed data file:

  1. Go to Setup > Accounting > Accounting List > New.
  2. In Name, enter the name for the new payment method. For example, Credit Card Token.
  3. From the Type dropdown list, choose one of the following:
    • Payment Card Token to create a credit card token.
    • General Token to create a token for a direct debit payment method, such as ACH or SEPA.
  4. If you selected Payment Card Token from the Type dropdown list, select the Requires Line-Level Data checkbox.
  5. Click Save.

For additional details about payment method tokenization, refer to the NetSuite documentation.

Import BlueSnap CSV Data into NetSuite

NetSuite provides the Import Assistant to guide you as you import CSV data.

  3. Select ONE FILE TO UPLOAD and click Select... to browse the file system for your processed data file. After you select the file, click Next.

Step 2: Import Options

On Import Options, choose one of the following Data Handling options to indicate how the imported data will impact your existing NetSuite data:

  • Add: Use this option if all the imported records are new to NetSuite.
  • Update: Use this option if all the imported records already exist in NetSuite, and the import will modify existing these records.
  • Add or Update: Use this option if the imported records are a mixture of new and existing records. The existing records will be modified.

Click Next.

Step 3: File Mapping

On File Mapping, click Next to skip this step. File mapping is not required for this data migration.

Step 4: Field Mapping

On Field Mapping, you can see the automatic mappings of the CSV file fields to NetSuite fields:

  • CSV file fields are listed on the left.
  • Field mappings are displayed in the center.
  • NetSuite fields are listed in the right pane.

You might need to manually map fields that the Import Assistant could not automatically map. The mapping status of each field is indicated as follows:

  • Fields that need to be mapped are in darker text.
  • Fields that have already been mapped are gray.
  • Custom fields are marked with a special icon.
  • Key fields are marked with a special icon.
  • Required fields are marked with Req. You must map these fields or provide default values for them.

After you map all fields, click Next.

Step 5: Save mapping & Start Import

On Save mapping & Start Import, click Save & Run to import your BlueSnap CSV data.
