Allows the admin to disable functionality of customer registration in store.


Back to top

The extension disables functionality of customer registration in the store. The admin can disable registration of new customers from his Admin area anytime. Once customer registration gets disabled, the registration form for registering new customers is not visible. The customer cannot register on the web store by even using a direct link of the registration page. It is very useful in cases where the admin wants the customers to shop on the website without creating an account or wants them to shop using a Guest checkout only.

Also, this extension used in cases where the admin wants to get admin approval before allowing customers to register and shop. This is possible by manual approval from Admin area. If manual approval of customer account enabled, then the Admin will get notification of every new customer registration through email. The customer will also get the notification when the admin manually activates his account. So, if manual activation enabled then the customer cannot log in or shop until his or her account gets activated by the admin manually.


  • No core file changed.

  • Admin can disable customer registration form.

  • Admin can change settings differently on multiple store websites.

  • Customers can not access direct url for account creation in store.

  • If social login / sign up gets enabled, disabling registration should also stop social sign up.

  • Activate new customer accounts manually that means new customers can log in after approval/activation by the Admin.

  • If approval needed by Admin then, forbid ‘Log in’ and ‘Check out’ actions for non-activated users.

  • Notify customers when their account gets activated.

  • This extension will not affect the below functionality:
    1. Admin will always be able to register new customers from the Admin area.
    2. Existing customers will always be able to log in, shop and checkout in the store.
