Account Verification

Hi,

 

Why does not Shopify require account verification for the customers? My customers just receive an account confirmation email and they can login to my store right away which means anyone can use any email to create an account. This is ridiculous...

 

Any idea how we can tackle this?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Accounts are set as optional. And I think you misunderstood me; I want to require my customers to verify their emails otherwise anyone can signup/sign in with any email address.

 

Thanks.

Then you need a custom App to do that.

Hello everyone, 

We have just released an account verification feature in the Customer Fields app!

If you're not familiar with Customer Fields, the app offers a suite of tools to customize your Shopify registration form(s). You can add additional fields, set up automatic customer tags, and now... require email verification before a customer is able to access their account.
