I regularly build e-commerce sites for businesses to sell to their dealers.
These customers do not want just anyone to be able to sign up for an account, rather they prefer to create user accounts themselves and send the login info to the dealer.
It would be nice to be able to choose whether users can create their own accounts, request an account and wait for approval or user accounts created by admin only, then be able to require login to view products.

the project is looking great so far guys, keep up the good work.

I agree, as I have had a couple clients with similar requirements, and they don’t want just anyone surfing the store either (at least not being able to see prices). I think this goes along the lines of memberships that have been discussed earlier though. So I do expect to see something along these lines in the future.
