Hi, there

Elle here from Shopify. 

I'm afraid you won't be able to edit the checkout to this extent, as it's highly secure; however, I do have a workaround for you. 

First and foremost you'll need to ensure that accounts are set to optional under Settings > Checkout. This will ensure the following option appears on the first part of the checkout:

"Log in" will redirect customers to a page where they can either log in, continue as a guest, or create a new account. 

You can modify the language of this phrase within the Language editor (Online store > Themes > Edit language) Search for "Already have an account" and you'll see the option below to change the wording: 

Hope this is helpful! :)

This was so helpful.  Looked all over the code for those variables!  However, the LOGIN link does not take you to the page that has the option to SET UP A NEW ACCOUNT, only login or continue as a guest.  Can I redirect that somewhere?

I have the same problem ... there is no SET UP A NEW ACCOUNT option 


How do I add a link to create a new account ?
