user registration required?

user registration required?

are all potential buyers required to register? Is there a way to disable this requirement?

I am able to add products to my cart, to check out, make a payment (through paypal sandbox) get redirected back to a confirmation page... but if i am not a registered user, the transaction will not proceed further. I do not want to force customers to sign up..

thoughts?

This is an important part of the PowerStore that associated the order with the user so that the user can visit their order history and reporting can be done on a user level. Do you want to disable user logins altogether on the site so that there are no order histories or reporting being done on them?

Since the user portion is so tightly integrated we will need to know what specifically you would like to get rid of and we will try to help you get it that way.

From a consumer psychology aspect, having to "sign up" for a possible 1 time purchase can definitely be a sales barrier (in my opinion). I understand the pros of being able to track purchases, etc, but (for this particular site) i think is unnecessary in this case. I would like to know just how difficult it is to remove this function all together. If it is too crazy, then it stays in. I have seen in the forums where others have tried to just disable the password part of the procedure, it that seemed very difficult.

On the flip side, for another site i am building where this is a good function, how difficult is it to ADD a link to a permission based 3rd party email supplier? Their forms are very specifically coded and i think (not sure) it would be difficult to add their form/code to the PowerStore registration page.

You can remove the requirements to login completely but the records that are created as a result will not be able to be associated with a user.

To remove the login requirements you will need to work on the checkout, confirm and pp_confirm page. What you will need to do is remove the validations for the password. You will need to remove the server validations as well as the spry validations for this.

On the checkout page you will need to remove the spry validations, these are controlled with these lines of code:

var sprypassword1 = new Spry.Widget.ValidationPassword("sprypassword1", {validateOn:["blur"], minAlphaChars:1, minNumbers:1, minChars:6});
var spryconfirm1 = new Spry.Widget.ValidationConfirm("spryconfirm1", "UserPassword2", {validateOn:["blur"]});



Next on the confirm page you will need to remove the server validations. Here is the code to remove for the server validations:

php:
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRX(((isset($_POST["UserPassword"]))?$_POST["UserPassword"]:"") . "","/[a-z,A-Z]/",true,5);

  $WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateLE(((isset($_POST["UserPassword"]))?$_POST["UserPassword"]:"") . "",((isset($_POST["UserPassword2"]))?$_POST["UserPassword2"]:"") . "",false,6);



Finally on the pp_confirm page you will need to remove both spry and server side validations. Here is the spry to remove from the pp_confirm page:

var sprypassword1 = new Spry.Widget.ValidationPassword("sprypassword1", {validateOn:["blur"], minAlphaChars:1, minNumbers:1, minChars:6});
var spryconfirm1 = new Spry.Widget.ValidationConfirm("spryconfirm1", "UserPassword2", {validateOn:["blur"]});



Here is the code to remove for the server validations:

php:
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateEL(((isset($_POST["UserPassword"]))?$_POST["UserPassword"]:"") . "",6,50,true,3);

  $WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRX(((isset($_POST["UserPassword"]))?$_POST["UserPassword"]:"") . "","/[0-9]/",true,4);
  $WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRX(((isset($_POST["UserPassword"]))?$_POST["UserPassword"]:"") . "","/[a-z,A-Z]/",true,5);
  $WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateLE(((isset($_POST["UserPassword"]))?$_POST["UserPassword"]:"") . "",((isset($_POST["UserPassword2"]))?$_POST["UserPassword2"]:"") . "",false,6);



This will allow a user to go through the checkout without logging in or creating a new user.

Further to this, I have a client who wants folks who download "Free" products to be able to do so without logging in, while keeping the login active for any products that have a cost associated with them.

Is this doable?

Thanks

put the download buttons for the free products on pages that are not protected.

Hi Jason,

thank you for the quick reply. Can you point me to any documentation on how to do that? or give me directions here, I'm not sure what you mean exactly.

No, there is no documentation for this, as power store does not support free products and allowing access to users that don't have a login.

if you wanted to make those downloads accesable without a login, you would need to create a page that had the download links for those product files on it.

Ah ok, I figured as much but thought I'd ask.

Thanks for the quick reply
