Login Changes Completed

The login change mentioned previously has now been implemented. All customers can now login using either their email or their old user name.

No changes or settings are required for individual stores.

What exactly has changed?

  1. Customers will no longer be asked to create a username when creating a new account, the email address will be used instead.
  2. The user name field on the login screen for returning users has been changed to be labelled Email.
  3. There are no longer separate email addresses for billing and shipping, the login email is used for both.
  4. If an existing customer tries to re-register the system will prompt them to login (if login is enabled for the store), or they can continue with registration.
