Ok it looks like this question has been asked 1000 times. I have yet to find a formal answer to it and by the looks of the dates its been an issue for 5 years????? DOES ANYONE HAVE A SOLUTION TO CUSTOMER ACCOUNT ACTIVATION?
1. New customer enters details (Name, Email, Password)
2. Page changes to "An activation email has been sent!" or something to that degree
3. Customer activates by clicking email link sent
4. Finally customer is redirected to login page and is required to login for access to the store
This is the absolute most basic and logical customer account creation there could be.... I'm not sure why it's still an issue after 5 years and has me considering Shopify to be a platform that might not be suitable for even the most basic of functionality for an eCommerce store.
