Customer Approval

Zen Cart Customer Approval

Most stores allow customers to visit, browse and buy the same day with no prior approval. However, it is possible to configure your store with restrictions on this process.

The Customer Approval Status setting allows you to set restrictions on customers in three possible ways:

1= Must be Authorized to Browse

This means customers are locked out of the store until they are approved. This is the highest level of restriction available. It is suitable for “Members-only” stores, or stores which are designed for a company intranet.

2= May browse but no prices unless Authorized

This setting allows potential customers to create accounts and look at products, but not see prices until an administrator approves them.

3= Customer May Browse and May see Prices but Must be Authorized to Buy

This setting allows potential customers to create accounts and shop, but not complete transactions until they are approved.


Still have questions? No problem! Just head over to the Zen Cart support forum and ask there.
In your post, please include your Zen Cart and PHP versions, and a link to your site.
