How can I Ask My Guest Checkout Customers to Register for an Account After they complete their first purchase?

I’m building a Magento store, currently hosted on XAMPP. I wish that my Guest Checkout customers should be given an option to register for an account maybe after they place an order for the first time. This will certainly help us a lot with more registered customers and come-back customers instead of 1-time customer.

We are selling T-shirts and shoes and really wish that our customers come back to us again and again for a fresh purchase.

Please advise a solution. Any extension? Mod? etc.

E-commerce stores struggle with the desire to register customers on the one hand, and making the checkout process too long, risking shopping cart abandonment on the other hand.

An alternative solution that enables merchants’ consumers to be remembered for future payments, without requiring registration is Zooz Payment’s new extension.

Zooz Web Checkout EXPRESS Paymentâ„¢ Extension stores consumer credentials across all Zooz enabled merchants, under the tightest security regulations, which include PCI Level1 compliance, and patent-pending anti-fraud detection technologies.

By using this extension, you can enable your consumers to check out in a few clicks, through an optimized user interface, without needing to fill out an inconvenient account registration.

To find out more about Zooz, check out http://www.zooz.com.

I have the opposite problem.
I am new to Magento.
How can I configure the shopping site to always use guest user and not offer users the option to register?

Hi. There are couple options - most are available only after customization or with specialized one step checkout extensions. Here is one that have all those options in configuration - Lightcheckout

- guest register or not - after first purchase on success page
- allow to guest purchase
- force to register.

All options you can choose to fit your needs
