Enabling Customer Accounts

Purpose: Customer accounts are accounts created on your online store that contain the customer's information for  identification and faster transactions each time the customer visits the store. This creates an advantage to both you and your customers since it can keep track of the customer's transactions at any given time. As a store owner, it is your own choice to either allow or require customers to create their accounts when doing business with your store.

This process shows you how to enable customer accounts.

1. On your Shopify page, click on Settings.

2. Click Checkout.

3. In the Customer Accounts section, click on the radio button to enable customer accounts. Choose whether you want it to be optional or required.

4. Click Save.

You have now enabled customer accounts on your store. In the example above, customers who made their purchases will be able to checkout with their accounts if they have created one or as a guest.
