How to disable customer account?

Hi, according to his:

We can disable a customer account. When I go click on the Customer's account, at the bottom I only see a red "Delete Customer" button. How do we disable a customer?

Hi, @ javadevmtl!

I'm Miles from the Social Care team at Shopify. If a customer has an account, you'll see the option to disable it at the top of their customer profile. If they don't, you won't see this option and instead see a delete customer option. Here's a screenshot of where you can find the button:


Once you've clicked the button, you'll be reminded that a customer will no longer be able to log in and you can then click "Remove account". A customer won't be notified of this removal and you'll need to send a new account invite for the customer to be able to create a new account.

If you're seeing something different to this, could you please let me know what you're seeing? Screenshots are also super helpful - but please make sure you don't show any sensitive customer information.

Hi thanks! Didn't realize we first had to send an account invite and then the customer has to accept the invite.
