How to Send Confirmation Email to New Customers

Magento Go gives you the option to require customers to “opt-in” by clicking a confirmation link in an email message, before their accounts are activated. This measure ensures that the account is associated with an actual person, rather than with a computer that is setting up fake accounts. It is a best practice to require that customers opt-in, and we recommend that you take advantage of this feature.

To enable confirmation email for new customers:

  1. From the Admin panel, select System > Configuration.
  2. In the Configuration panel on the left, under Customer, select Customer Configuration.
  3. Click to expand the Create New Account Options section. Then, do the following:

    1. Set Require Emails Confirmation to “Yes.”
    2. Set Confirmation Link Email to the template you want to use for confirmation email. It is initially set to the default template, but can be changed.
  4. Click the Save Config button to save your changes.
