I'm in the mist of building a new commence site using wpsc and I noticed that there's an option to allow my buyers to register for an account on my ecommence site.
Naturally even if I choose this option, I'll NOT make it mandatory for the customers to register. They will still have the option of a quick checkout.
I have never felt the need to provide this option, but after looking around I noticed that almost 90% of the ecommence sites nowadays have the option to allow their buyers to register on their site.
What is the purpose of creating accounts for my customers? My customers are still able to track their purchases using an email link I'll send to them once I send out their parcel so I don't think this is for tracking purposes.
I'll like to hear your thoughts on this as whatever I can find from this forum was from years ago. :)
