Customer Accounts and Multiple Storefronts


This article applies only to CS-Cart, not Multi-Vendor.

CS-Cart offers 2 ways of handling customer accounts:

  • One customer base shared among all storefronts

    All storefronts will recognize a customer once he or she has registered on any other storefront. However, it may confuse your customers, especially if they’re supposed to see your storefronts as separate stores.

  • Different customer bases for each storefront (recommended)

    Customers will have to create accounts separately for each storefront.

To choose either of the options, use the Share users among stores checkbox in Settings → Stores.
