Shopify Customers Login?

Customer account, what is it?

When enabling customers to create their personal accounts, their information including identity (name, phone number, email), order history and current order status will be stored in your database. When a customer logs in, their details such as name, email and address will be pre-filled from your data during checkout.

Set your customer account preferences?

You can set up customer accounts as required or optional, you can even disable them. When customers want to create an account, they will be directed to a separate page for account creation. Keep in mind that if you make customer accounts required, that might hurt sales conversions because it complicates the buying process.

To edit your customer account settings, go to Settings -> Checkout in your Shopify Admin.

  • Accounts are disabled: There won’t be an option for customers to create an account or log in during checkout. They will have to enter their information manually at checkout as fields won’t be pre-filled.
  • Accounts are optional: It’s not mandatory to have an account to check out, but customers can still create an account. Their information will be pre-filled if they have an account and are logged in during checkout.
  • Accounts are required: It’s mandatory to check out with an account, which means customers have to create one and are logged in to complete their checkout. This setting is helpful if you’re running a wholesale or members-only store.

If your customer account setting is optional, you can send your customers direct invitations to encourage them to create an account. They will receive an email asking them to create their password; this email is only valid for 30 days.
