The header of every page in your store extends an invitation for shoppers to “Log in or register” for an account with your store. You have the option to require that customers register before making a purchase, or to allow them to make purchases as guests. Customers who open an account with your store enjoy a range of benefits, including:
- Faster checkout. Registered customers move through checkout faster because much of the information is already in their accounts.
- Ability to self-serve. Registered customers can update their information, check the status of orders, and even reorder from their account dashboard.
