Nowadays, many customers prefer to crawl through various websites before making a purchase. In this era, where eCommerce has a significant portion of market share, almost every product is available online. Also, the comparative prices of a product across multiple websites prompt a customer to look for it on other sites too. This, in turn, is giving rise to guest checkouts too. The only reason being the lesser time taken by the user to buy the product via the guest checkout. But, now you can offer your guest users to register as a customer on the order confirmation page. This has become possible due to Prestashop Guest Login module only.
Offering your guest users to register as a customer is beneficial for you as well as the potential customer. A user after registering on the website as customer is entitled to all the rewards, vouchers. In the long run, this not only helps to get the sales for the merchant but the user enjoys certain benefits too. Looking over all this, we have specifically made this module to help both of them i.e. merchants & customers.
