Subject Re: Enforce customer registration before buying

Hi Bernat & Hans:

With OFBiz out-of-the-box (OOTB) you can always buy anonymously. Perhaps 
the confusion might be in what Bernat is calling "registration". 
(Creating an account with a user login vs. creating a unique user 
identifier record in the Party table. A Party record is always created 
(OOTB) when the order is created. This unique record (partyId) is what 
identifies "who is charged for the sale". What doesn't get created 
automatically is the user login.

In many business environments, "registration" suggests creating an 
account with a user login.

Bernat, one thing you could do is remove the "Checkout without Login" 
link(s). There may be more than one link - since there is the one page 
checkout and the multi-page checkout and who knows how many other 
examples of "checking out". That way, the user is forced to create an 
account with a login as they progress through checkout.

Best Regards,
