Email Verification for Sign Up

1. EC (EN).png

In order to minimize the chance that users are using an email that is not their email address to make orders, you can turn on the toggle in Admin > Customer Settings which will send email to users for verification.

 

This article will cover the following:

 

1. Email registration/ verification settings

Step 1. Confirm your plan

At the upper right corner of the store backstage, go to "Hello, OOO" > "My Subscription & Billing" to view the store's plans and modules.

  1. Under the Paid Subscription, there are Plans and Modules. Please check if your store has the e-Commerce plan. If so, please skip to Step 2.

  2. If you are using the Basic, Advanced, Premium, O2O, Enterprise, or Cross Border plan (as shown below). Please confirm whether your store is using the Premium, O2O or Enterprise plan.

  3. If your store meets the requirements above, please go to the SHOPLINE Admin > [Apps] > [Apps Store] in the left menu to install the features.

 

🔔 If you want to send verification emails to users, you can switch on the toggle for "Send Verification Email When Register." Merchants can consider switching on the toggle for "Verification is required before login." If the toggle for "Verification is required before login" is turned OFF, customers are not required to complete the verification for signing in and placing orders. Or else, verification is required for logging in and placing orders.

A. Email only

The system will guide existing members who have signed up with mobile numbers to fill in the email when logging in next time.

*Note: If you have enabled email verification, the system will automatically send a verification email when the existing member fills in the email address. This will not affect their login process.

B. Sign up with email and mobile number

The system will guide existing members who have signed up via email / mobile number to fill in the mobile number/ email when logging in next time.

*Remarks:

  • If you have enabled email verification, the system will automatically send a verification email when the existing member fills in the email address. This will not affect their login process.
  • If you have enabled mobile phone verification when existing members enter the email address, they must complete the verification first to log in.

🔔 Please see this article to learn more about signing up with mobile numbers.

 

*Notes:

  • This feature currently does not support directing customers registered via Social Commerce and Shopper App to complete membership information.
  • If you have enabled the verification feature, the existing members are required to complete the verification when filling in their email / mobile phone number.
  • If you enable the mobile number sign up method, a window will pop up to suggest you enable the Google reCAPTCHA verification settings. Please connect to your Google reCAPTCHA to prevent SMS abuse.

  • If you have activated the "Google reCAPTCHA" validation settings, customers will be verified during registration for potential bot risk according to the "Security Preference" settings you have configured in the Google reCAPTCHA admin. If the risk level is too high, customers must pass a visual verification to receive a text message. You can adjust the "Security Preference" settings on your own to reduce the proportion of customers encountering visual verification.
  • If you haven't activated the "Google reCAPTCHA" validation settings, customers will go through the Google reCAPTCHA set up uniformly by SHOPLINE during registration. If a customer's risk level exceeds the "Security Preference" settings configured by SHOPLINE, they must pass a manual visual verification to receive a text message.

    If you haven't integrated reCAPTCHA, customers at high risk of being bots will encounter an SMS verification process when they click the "Next" button, and they will see a visual verification prompt that says "I am not a robot" (as shown in the image above).

 

Step 3. Verification settings

In SHOPLINE Admin, go to [Settings] > [Customer Settings] > Verification method to set up whether to send the verification email.

*Note: If you have enabled "Send email verification, verification required before login," besides new sign-ups, the system will automatically send a verification email when the existing member changes their email addresses.
