Depending on what your final goal is, you will be better off using 1. ShuttleCloud’s integration within Gmail or 2. the ShuttleCloud Migration Tool in the G Suite Marketplace.
1. If what you want is to import mail and/or contacts to your Gmail or G Suite account from a prior webmail provider such as Hotmail or Yahoo then the ShuttleCloud app within Gmail is the best option for you!
Your users will be able to complete their migrations following the steps in this article: https://blog.shuttlecloud.com/how-do-i-import-email-from-another-email-account-into-a-gmail/ or if you prefer a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEeorOjbbNU&t=
2. If, on the other hand, what you want to do is import emails to your G Suite account from a business email provider such as G Suite, Office 365, or others, then the ShuttleCloud Migration Tool in the G Suite Marketplace App is what you are looking for!

– User-driven migration within the Gmail interface.
– Migrates from most consumer email systems (e.g., Yahoo, Gmail, Outlook, AOL, etc.).
