Does Magento give the ability to add custom attributes for customers? I need the ability for customers to select from a drop-down list what type of organization they are from when they create their account. I didn’t see anything in the demo admin site for that.

You would have to create a custom module for this. It would be fairly straight forward.

If this is so straight forward, I wonder why there is still no module available to do it....

A company/developper who would make a clean extension, upgrade proof, that would allow to add Customer Attributes, would make a lot of money....

I have a B2B store to make, and I will not use Magento because of this. First Name and Last name are not enough to identify a customer in B2B.

I suppose no one has asked!

I have made the following:

Quick Order Module
Custom Options based on Category in shopping cart
Custom Option in Listing page (With Pulldowns)
Static Blocks on FrontPage
Expandable Menus
.ASP/.ASPX Category/Product bridge (So all your old links work on your new Magento site)

See them all here

Yes, it is doable with the Customer Attributes extension.
It allows to add fields of several types to the registration form as well as on the billing info page of checkout (if a customer chooses to register to your site). In admin panel you can see and even filter by these custom fields.

If you have exact list of organizations, you can create separate Customer Group for each organization (store manager handles it successfully wink)
