As a store visitor, you get significantly simplified registration and login procedures. The Magestore Social Login Magento 2 requires selecting a preferred social account to create a new account or login with the help of the existing one. There is no need to pass the default procedure with lots of fields. Note that it is possible to choose among 18 account types. And you can register a new account as normal or edit the newly created one. We describe all these and more features below, but let’s take a look at the extension’s backend first.
The backend section of the Magestore Social Login Magento 2 extension is relatively huge since it includes blocks related to each social account type. Thus, you can separately customize login/registration via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Amazon, Google +, Yahoo, AOL, WordPress, Clavid, Orange, Foursquare, LinkedIn, MyOpenId, LiveJournal, Persona, Stack Exchange, and VK.
As for General Settings, they allow you to enable/disable the frontend functionality of the module, choose accounts position (Header, Above customer login form, Below customer login form, Above customer registration form, Below customer registration form, Show popup when click login), and specify shown direction (Left to Right or Right to Left). Besides, you can select a redirect page: it cn be a current page, a cart page, a home page, an account page, or a custom page (should be specified in a corresponding field). The General Configuration section also allows you to set a number of visible buttons.
For each account block, you can specify a sort order. Thus, you can arrange account buttons on the frontend.
It is also necessary to mention that Magestore Social Login provides the ability to put the social login button block in any preferred position. There are several сode snippets and description of how to use them.
The very first thing you see on the homepage is a new opportunity to log in with the help of social buttons. There are 4 visible buttons (their quantity is customizable) and a button that brings the popup with other social accounts.
The popup has the following appearance:
Next, you can click on the Sign In link above on the right. The following popup window will appear:
As for the Create an Account link, it lets you choose a desired social account via the following popup:
You can edit account information via the Account Dashboard tab in your customer account. It is also possible to change billing and shipping addresses here.
