Only Guest Checkout - Turn “off” Customer Accounts

Greetings,

I’m setting up a 1-product store to get my feet wet with magento, and the model for this microbusiness is one where we don’t want to permit customers to create an account.  Just give us your money and we ship you the product.

Of course through template modification I can probably hack things into the shape I desire.  But from a global/systems standpoint it would be awesome to make guest checkout the only checkout process that’s available.

Is there a way to do this without “hiding” the my account stuff with xhtml/css?

I don’t have an answer for you, but I actually modified it to not allow registrations for guests and only allow checkout for people with accounts (we create the accounts on the back end). I had to modify the code and .phtml and .css files to get what I wanted but it worked. I doubt there is an easy way to do either of these things at the current moment. It is possible to hack things though and get what you want.

I too would like to be able to do this… only checkout as a guest. Just to make things really simple, in a store with very few products. Is there any way to do it?

Thanks,

Jim

A solution could be our module here:

We wrote a little Module that makes a smooth guests-only checkout and disables all user-account interaction:

Solution sounds nice, but there is no easy way to buy it… Could you add more payments methodst to your site?

You can try our new shop: http://shop.skelpo.com/magento-modules/guestsonly.html

It is just in the process of getting ready so don’t blame for not a custom design yet wink
