eCommerce: Add a Store Login


The eCommerce login feature allows Website visitors to create an account for your store and sign in during their next visit. In addition, Website owners can manage those visitors and grant them special promotions. This is useful if you'd like to monitor customer activity or reward frequent buyers.


Add login button

There is no signup or login widget for StoreFront. Instead, you can link any text, button or image widget to the store login page. To do so, go to the Store link section and select the "Store Login" option from the dropdown.


Login page

The login page has forms where customers can enter their username and password to log in to the eCommerce store. They can also recover lost passwords or create new accounts from this page. The login link can only be used once and will expire in 14 days.


Customer account home

Once logged in, customers can adjust account settings, view order history or manage address information.


Managing customer accounts

You can view your customer accounts in the StoreFront control panel. To access a list of customers, click on the My Sales tab, then click the Customers tab. You can export customer information to a CSV from this screen.


Things to consider

The text on the button does not change when the user is logged in, so we recommend using neutral text on the button, such as "My Account" rather than "Customer Login".
