Email Verification

Overview


Customer Perspective

When the Email Verification module is enabled, customer upon signup will receive nicely formatted email verification message with a link, that once visited will activate the account. Until customer account is activated he/she will not be able to do anything in their account after login, unless the account will be verified through email. The customer will be presented with info prompt to enter verification code as shown on the screenshot:
