To set up your website for customers, you need to determine the registration workflow for your web store. There are four possible site registration scenarios:

  • Existing Customer, New Customer or Guest Shopper

  • Existing Customer only

  • Existing Customer or New Customer

  • Guest Shopper only

Depending on the requirements of your business, you may choose one of the various options. For a more detailed description on the various registration flows and their operation, see Customer Registration Flow.

To configure site registration:

  1. Go to Setup > SuiteCommerce Advanced > Set Up Web Site.

  2. On your Web Site Setup record, click Edit.

  3. On the Shopping subtab, Registration Page section, select the desired option in the Customer Registration Is field. The options are: disabled, optional, existing customer only, and required.

    • To enable all possible registration flows, select optional.

    • To only enable Existing Customer or New Customer registration flows, select required.

    • To enable Guest Shopper registration flow only, select disabled.

    • To enable Existing Customer registration flow only, select existing customer only.

    For more information on the different flows, see Customer Registration Flow.

  4. Click Save.


If you have multiple websites, you may want to ensure that a customer only has access to a specific site. Customers are assigned to all sites by default. To change this behavior, see Assign Customers to Websites.
