Why won’t magento save guest data during checkout?

So a customer is going through checkout as guest, enters two addresses because he prefers to ship to a different one, choses a shipping method, enters his payment information is finally ready to place to order only to see that he accidently ordered 2 pieces of an item. So he uses the button “Forgot an item” to go back to his cart, removes the one item, clicks on the checkout button expecting to get back to the checkout review but instead he’ll have to do it all over again…

I know the magento team already stated somewhere, that they have their reasons not to save the guest checkout data - I’d really just like to know what these reasons are since I am planning to change this behavior. Are there any security or other issues I might run into? It just seems like such a basic feature wouldn’t be left out without good reasons, so I’m afraid I’ll run into problems with modifying this.

I am afraid not. In the end I had to hire a freelancer to do the job.

hi..

This is very to change in your configuration design file. We must to touch a configuration coding file.. To change your guest to customer modules like to show both the order reviews and to modify that order placed..

Purchase online point of sales software system with affordable price and point of sales gift voucher with special discount coupon code..

Thank you!!
Haseena…
