    I have several user accounts, which must be kept separate. At work we have instigated a shared Customer List and we are being asked to add our customer contacts onto this list. The easiest way would be for me to transfer my personal customer list (stored in iCloud) to the corporate account, where the contacts could be picked up. I have seen a number of apps that can move contacts between groups, but none that can move contacts between accounts.

    Help!!!

    Very new iPad user.

    If you go to icloud.com on a computer you can select contacts and export them as vCard (.vfc) files. You can then import those files into your corporate account using whatever tools they supply. You can even email them to yourself and use Open In in the Mail app to import them on the iPad.

    vCard is a standard format that most modern contact apps should recognize.

    It may not be ideal, but you could accomplish what you're looking for using our app called Migration+. You export selected contacts from one phone then import using another device. You could create a shared business account user ID on Migration+ and use it between all sales people across multiple devices/apple IDs.

    If you need to transfer or sync contacts between a pair of iPhone/iPad accounts (such an Exchange account & an iCloud account), there's an app called "Contact Mover & Account Sync" that can accomplish just that. It allows you to move/sync contacts in any direction.
