Guest to Customer Case Study
#1. John is a shop manager who receives customer orders by phone. One day he receives a call from Kate who says she had placed an order in their shop once and wants to make a purchase by phone now. Instead of asking her personal information, shipping and billing addresses John checks if there already exists Kate’s information in the database and asks for her confirmation about its accuracy. He finds the valid information but sees that Kate had placed her order as a guest which means that to create an order John has to fill in the information from the guest order and create a new account manually. It takes a while and is not satisfying for the manager as well as for the customer, Kate needs to remain on a line longer. Magento Guest to Customer converter allows John to generate the new customer in one click and then create a new order by pressing a corresponding button on the Customer’s page in the admin panel. This way, your shop functions more productively as far as managers save time, manage orders faster and customers stay satisfied with the fast and qualified service.
#2. Ben and Ann run their shop successfully. However, a lot of their orders are created by guest customers which they want to convert to customer accounts for the better segmentation of clients. To manage this they start by going through all guest orders and creating the customer accounts manually one by one. But after a while, they see it is a very time-consuming procedure that can take days. Of course, they need to optimize the process. This is one of the cases when you need our module to assign all guest orders to customer accounts in seconds, saving a lot of time.
#3. Magenfan.com uses Magento 2 Convert Guest to Customer extension as well. We sell downloadable products (Magento 2 Extensions) and Magento requires customers to have an account in order to download the module after the purchase. For other store owners, there are other cases customer account needs to be created. We don’t want to force our clients to log in or create an account before placing an order. It isn’t convenient as it scares clients off and decreases conversion rate. Thus we allow guest checkout for downloadable products but we automatically convert guest order to the customer account with the help of our plugin.
