4. Customizable Emails & Messages: Tailor the verification messages displayed to users on your site and emails, ensuring a seamless and brand-consistent experience on the frontend of your store.

5. Admin Control and Management: Admins gain significant control, including options to manually verify or unverify users, resend activation links, and even delete unverified users either manually or on an automated schedule.

नेहमी विचारले जाणारे प्रश्न

User registration clears shopping cart?

If your cart is getting empty after a new account is created, there are some things you could try:
– Enable the option Advanced > Custom logout function.
– Set the Advanced > Prevent login after register > Login prevention method option as Use login filter from WooCommerce.

When a user registers, it gives an error. How can I fix it?

Set the Advanced > Prevent login after register > Login prevention method option as Use login filter from WooCommerce.

How to eliminate spam registrations?

If you use some options combined, you’ll be able to remove the unverified users automatically, eliminating spam registrations.
This is what you can do:

  • Disable General > Enable email verification for already registered users (This is optional, however it’s more safe)
  • Enable Advanced > Delete users automatically
  • Set General > Expire time (This is optional but it’s more safe, because you’ll be removing only unverified users whose activation have expired. This is a Pro feature though)

What can I do if I get a 403 error or have issues when trying to save settings?

Some servers have security solutions that do not allow saving settings with HTML tags.
You can try to contact them asking to disable it, or you can try our option:

  • Advanced > Replace HTML tags

It will try to convert the angle brackets from HTML tags by other characters.
After that, you’ll just need to save the settings page once more. On the frontend the characters will be converted to HTML tags again.

Why the activation message (“Thank you for your registration…”) is not getting displayed after registration?

Please try to make sure that at least one of the above options are enabled.
If just some of them are already enabled and even so it doesn’t work, try to enable all of the them:

  • Advanced > Prevent login after register
  • Advanced > Prevent login after checkout
  • Logout unverified users on “My Account” page
  • Logout unverified users on every page

How to prevent duplicated success message after account verification?

Please try to use General > Redirect on success option as Do not redirect

If a unverified user tries to login how to priorize verification error message over incorrect password ?

Try to set the Advanced > Authenticate filter option as authenticate filter

What can I do if the error messages are not showing?

If an unverified user is trying to login and the error message (Your account has to be activated before you can login…) is not getting displayed you can try two different approaches:

  1. Use the Redirect on failure option.
    Even if the Custom redirect URL option is empty, there will be no problem.
    A ?alg_wc_ev_email_verified_error argument will be added to the URL that could help you displaying the message.

  2. Change the Advanced > Authenticate filter option.

How to use the alg_wc_ev_verification_status shortcode ?

You can use the [alg_wc_ev_verification_status] shortcode to display the verification status, showing if current user is verified or not.
Params for the [alg_wc_ev_verification_status] shortcode:

  • wrapper_template: <div class="alg-wc-ev-verification-status">{content_template}</div>
  • content_template: Verification status: {verification_status}
  • verified_status: Verified
  • unverified_status: Unverified
  • hide_if_verified: false
  • hide_for_guests: false

wrapper_template params:

  • {content_template}

content_template params:

  • {verification_status}
  • {user_display_name}
  • {user_nicename}

How to use the alg_wc_ev_resend_verification_url shortcode ?

You can use the [alg_wc_ev_resend_verification_url] shortcode to display a message with a link to the verification url.
Params for the [alg_wc_ev_resend_verification_url] shortcode:

  • wrapper_template: <div class="alg-wc-ev-resend-verification-url">{content_template}</div>
  • content_template: You can resend the email with verification link by clicking <a href="{resend_verification_url}">here</a>.
  • hide_if_verified: true
  • hide_for_guests: false

content_template params:

  • {resend_verification_url}

How to use the alg_wc_ev_email_content_placeholder shortcode ?

You can use the [alg_wc_ev_email_content_placeholder] shortcode to append the verification email to some custom email template.
In order to use it, it’s necessary to:

  • Enable the option Email > Activation email > Fine tune activation email placement
  • Disable the option Email > Activation email > Send as a separate email
  • Most probably the option Emails > Activation email > Email template should be set as Plain

Params for the [alg_wc_ev_email_content_placeholder] shortcode:

I recently integrated the Customer Email Verification for WooCommerce plugin into my online store, and I must say, it has been a game-changer for both security and customer satisfaction. I run a small but growing e-commerce store specializing in handmade jewelry. With an increasing number of orders, I noticed a rise in fraudulent transactions and fake accounts, which not only hurt my revenue but also caused significant headaches with inventory and shipping. Implementation: Setting up the plugin was incredibly straightforward. The installation took just a few minutes, and the configuration options were clear and easy to understand. I was able to customize the verification email to match my brand’s tone and aesthetic, which was a nice touch. I recommend it totally!

Hi, We have updated your plugin to the latest version (Email Verification for WooCommerce 2.6.9), and now the activation emails are not being sent to users. Consequently, newly registered users are unable to login. Therefore, we have deactivated the plugin. Could you please provide answers to the following queries: How can we resolve the issue of activation emails not being sent?Is there a method to send activation links to users in bulk via email for them to activate their accounts? Please reply. Thanks.
