Is this feature disabled?


This feature needs to be switched on for your site by Commerce Vision. 

Overview

B2B Registration allows a trade (wholesale or business) user to register for B2B access and have their user (login) account linked to an ERP customer account. Users with active accounts can log on and will receive that account's default settings (i.e. Pricing, Warehouse, Contract Information etc). If Auto Part Registration is on, a new user is disabled until approved.


  • (Versions 4.37+) Instead of globally enabling auto part registration, you can prevent users from some selected Customer accounts from successfully registering. See: Set Auto Part Registration for Customer

Registration Process

Default B2B user registration process:

1. When your website is enabled for B2B user registration, there is a link for B2B registration in the Login popup. 


2. The visitor fills in a form and includes:  

  • Contact Name
  • Customer Code (NOTE - If this field is not mandatory, the new user is created against the default customer code. This is usually the public B2C customer. It can be changed manually.)
  • Company
  • Password
  • Customer Account Code

Extra fields can be added to the B2B Registration page. Contact Commerce Vision Support for assistance.


3. Depending on settings, the new user is either immediately registered and can log in to their account, or if User Approval is enabled, they must wait until their registration has been reviewed and approved by an Account Administrator. 


4. If User Approval (Auto Part Registration) is enabled, the Account Administrator is alerted that a Customer has registered for trade access. The user is notified that their registration is subject to approval.


5. If the user is approved, they receive an email stating their registration is approved and they can now login.


Add user approval step

Enable user approval

If Auto Part Registration is enabled, a 'review and approve' step for Admin is added so a new customer user application can be checked. The user exists but they cannot log onto your site yet. In the user's Edit User page, the Disable User Account is toggled ON.


To add this user approval step to the registration process:

  1. In the CMS, go to Settings →  Settings → Feature ManagementUser.

  2. Toggle ON Auto Part Registration.


  3. If this Customer uses a process of multiple approvers, toggle ON Tiered Approval in B2B Registration

    This option allows different approvers (i.e. tiers) instead of just a single approver. This means approval can be directed to the more appropriate person, e.g a rep manager for a particular customer, or a state / territory manager for a particular location. With this setting on, if the registering user does not have a provide a CustomerCode, or if they do and that Customer record does not have a Rep User associated it with it, then it will fall back to the standard Auto Part Registration approver. 



Approve a user

If user approval is enabled, the internal notification recipient receives an email that a B2B user has registered. 

NOTE - Email content is rendered by the B2B Registration Approval Required Widget

  • To access it: go to ContentContent  → EmailsB2B Registration Approval Required Email → B2B Registration Approval Required Email Template
  • (CMS Administrators only) Settings →  Settings Feature Management → Users → Auto Part Registration → Auto Part Registration Feature Settings → B2B Registration Approval Required Email Template button.


Administrators can approve a new B2B user registration.

  1. In the CMS, go to Users → Website Users.

  2. Use the User Search tool. You can search by email address (from the email notification). 
  3. Approve user - select (a) or (b):

    2. To review user details, click Edit for the user. Change any details if required. TIP - You may need to change the User's Role, Customer Account, and budget thresholds (Order, Requisition and Approval limits). 

  4. To save, click Save & Approve. The user's account is enabled and they will receive the welcome email. 

    In the user's Edit User page, the Disable User Account toggle is automatically turned off.
