Introduction

Customer Approval extension allows you to restrict customers from logging in to your website without prior approval. This is particularly helpful when you want to verify the customer's details before giving them access to the website. It can also be used to force the customers to login before they can make a purchase by disabling Guest Checkout which is a standard feature in Magento.

The extension allows you to redirect customers to any URL internal or external. It also allows you to configure the extension for your store to send email notifications to the admin upon account creation and to the customer upon approval and rejection of the customer application. Email templates for admin notification, customer approval and rejection come with the extension. Custom emails templates can be created using the Transactional Emails feature in Magento. The extension is configurable at the store view level allowing you to have different settings for different stores in your multi store setup.

Customer approval can be done in one of the three ways:

  • Using our Mass Actions to approve/reject multiple customers at the same time.
  • Using the action provided on every grid row for each customer.
  • Using the Approve / Reject buttons in the customer edit page.

Features Included

  • Approve / Reject customers in batch from 'Manage Customers' grid.
  • Approve / Reject single customer from the 'Manage Customers' grid row actions.
  • Approve / Reject single customer from admin customer edit page.
  • Display customer approval status on each row in the 'Manage Customers' grid.

  • Email templates included for approval, rejection and admin notification.
  • Custom email templates can be created under Magento Transactional Emails. The extension can be configured to use custom templates that override the templates provided with the extension.
