How do I let my customers update their email address and password from their account page without having to contact me to do it for them? I can't seem to find any documentation on this anywhere?
As far as i'm aware this unfortunately isn't possible. Well ... you could use Shopifys API to allow the customer to update their email address. But according to the documentation updating a password isn't possible what so ever. Sorry :(
It is totally possible! Shopify is scriptable, and so you just need to add some scripting to handle it.
That is not terrible. That is modern. That is the way to go. Does not get much easier than that.
Indeed, it is so standard, it has been part of Shopify documentation for many years now, as a standard feature for most shops.
@HunkyBill - Shoot me a message on our site (link to the left) and let me know how much you'd charge to add this functionality to a store (edit name, email and password). We have a project that will need this and if you can perform the task quicker than we can, it may be a great opportunity to start a working relationship. Thanks!
We built the Customer Fields app to simplify this process and make it easier for customers to edit their name and email using an "Edit Account" page. The app also allows you to easily customize the registration form to include new fields, which can also be edited by customers if you so desire!
