Guest Checkout For Members Already Registered

Hi guys,

I love the flexibility of CS Cart but one thing is making it a less than desirable checkout experience, and that is that registered members seem to be unable to checkout as a GUEST.

If a customer attempts to checkout as a guest and has previously registered an account with the same email the shopping cart software will not let them proceed with that same email. They have 3 choices:

1. Login to their account (if they can recall their account info)

2. Reset their password if they have forgotten their account info

3. Use an alternative email address, if they are lucky to have one

This is frustrating for me, and one thing that I really love about the famously easy Shopify store process. We shouldn't be "forcing" our customers to use their account login if they don't feel like it.

There are lots of circumstances where this could irritate a customer, including if they're in a rush, don't wish to use their account for that purchase, don't have a second email or don't remember their account info.

I've looked at ways to fix this but cannot find anything stable or regularly updated.

Does anyone else see this as an order deterrent / block ?

Would greatly appreciate suggestions on how I might be able to allow Registered Users to Checkout as Guest if they so desire it (without causing an error message / block from proceeding to payment).

The only addon I know of that has it integrated is this one. http://cscartrocks.com/one-step-checkout.html

Maybe this addon can help

Appreciate the reply.

This plugin doesn't appear to have been updated anytime recently.

I did look at this but dismissed it because it looks pretty old with no recent love.
