FieldName Type Size Note
FirstName StringField 100
LastName StringField 100
StoreCode StringField 100 This value indicates the location that the member is associated with. StoreCode format is typically 001, 002, 003, and so on.
InputSource StringField 100 This value indicates how a member is created (example: through a subscribe page, through API Integration, etc.). Do not update an existing input source value during PATCH/UPDATE requests.
Birthdate DateField If applicable, members will receive special mailing for their birthday.
Example DateField If applicable, members will receive special mailing for their anniversary.
