Advanced Sign Up

The SuiteCommerce Advanced Sign Up extension lets you use an alternate sign up form on your website, in addition to or instead of the existing standard customer registration form. This form is particularly suited to wholesalers who want their users to register before they are able to shop on their site. To complete the registration process, users must be approved either manually or through the automatic approval process. You can decide which fields to include on the form and whether the form creates a lead or customer record in NetSuite.

Important:

Commerce extensions are only available if provisioned, installed, and activated for a selected domain in your account. For more information, see Commerce Extensions.
