New Account Opt-In

It is a best practice to require that customers “opt-in,” to ensure that the account is associated with an actual person. Magento Go gives you the option to require that customers “opt-in” by clicking a confirmation link in an email message before their accounts become active.

To require that customers “opt-in” for an account:

  1. From the Admin menu, select System > Configuration.
  2. In the Configuration panel on the left, under Customer, select Customer Configuration.
  3. Click to expand the Create New Account Options section. Then, do the following:
    1. Set Require Emails Confirmation to “Yes.”
    2. Set Confirmation Link Email to the template you want to use for confirmation email.
  4. When complete, click the Save Config button.
