Hi,

 

I have a customer who says they have tried multiple times to reset their password and are not receiving the reset email.  I tried on my end as well and she still did not receive an email.  I Don't know if this is a shopify issue or email issue...

This is an accepted solution.

Are emails landing in the junk/spam box? Are they using a common email provider such as Gmail, yahoo, outlook?

Possibly, consider sending an email to merchant support, maybe they can look into the logs.

I had asked her all that and if she had a different email (she is using an att.net).  Took her a while to get back to me then was embarrassed because the emails had went into her spam.  I assumed she had checked that but I guess I shouldn't assume!  thanks for the tips

I just wanted to chime in and say thank you. I was going crazy trying to figure out why customers weren't receiving password reset emails, and I was literally on live chat with support for almost an hour troubleshooting until I came across this thread.

I am having the same issue. Customer has checked spam, not there. She is using gmail. I can't contact merchant support because it's asking me to verify my account details, which I have already done, and won't let me proceed.

Hi @novellyyours 

 

I'd be happy to help you with this! You should be able to connect with our live chat support team at any time through our Help Center. You mentioned having some issues verifying your account details, can you share some more information about that? What issue are you seeing? 

 

You can initiate a password reset for a customer account from within their customer profile in your admin. If you they are still not receiving it then connecting with our authenticated chat support is the next step in troubleshooting this.

Hello,
Please see attached. I cannot access chat support.

I don't see how I am able to initiate a password reset. I dont't see that
option in the customer profile.

Hi @novellyyours 

 

Thanks for following up about this. I see that you mentioned having something attached to your reply, but I don't see any screenshots or any attachments to review with you.

  • Ensure the web browser is up to date and on the latest version.
  • Try another device, like another computer or mobile phone.
  • Try another internet connection (example, switch to a cellular network on a phone rather than wifi.)
  • Ensure you do not have any firewalls, pop up blockers or VPNS enabled on the device as these can interfere with your access to our Help Center chat support.

Hi @novellyyours,

 

Thank you for sharing those screenshots. To confirm however, have you attempted all of the troubleshooting steps above? 

 

As you're not seeing the option to send a password reset email, our support team would need to investigate further. Please be sure to try accessing the Help Center from another browser, device, and internet connection to see if this helps to resolve.

 

Please let me know how it goes.
