Removing Customer Sign Up


Guest

Recommended Posts

I've done a search here and didnt come up with the topic. Anyways, my client would like the requirement for customer account removed. Payment is done through Pay Pal, so if the customer is not a PP member, they have to sign up twice.

 

any ideas?

The guest account contributions do not really keep the customer from having to enter the info in they just keep them from getting an account. There is not much difference in how much info they have to enter in. If you are using paypal you should be using paypal ipn anyway and I believe the following contribution will prepopulate the paypal fields with the customer information when they are transferred to the paypal site to pay.

 

Paypal IPN

The Knowledge Base is a wonderful thing.

Do you have a problem? Have you checked out Common Problems?

There are many very useful osC Contributions

Are you having trouble with a installed contribution? Have you checked out the support thread found Here

For US merchants, buyer sign up is no longer required.

 

I believe ozcsys is correct in that the "PayPal_Shopping_IPN" contribution takes advantage of PayPal's pre-fill feature so that shoppers would not need to etner name & address information twice.

Is there anyway to remove making the customer sign up for a account? Just letting them make a purchase. My question has nothing to do with paypal...I know the original did but I just want to remove that requirement.

 

thanks

The guest account contribution makes it so an account is not being opened for the customer but there is not really not that much difference in how much info is collected. I believe it does appear less intrusive to the customer. Unless you are selling downloads you will need to collect the info to process the sale anyway so that would work.
