WooCommerce: Let registered users 'claim' their guest purchases
Say a visitor buys something in my shop as a guest.
Then at a later point decides he wants an account and he uses the same email address.
I've tested this and the account is made, but the guest purchase is not linked to the account.
The 'guest orders' should be matched via email address and possibly parts of the billing address to verify the order is actually from that person and be linked to the newly created account.
Another way would be to create a small form/thingy in the account the user registers where he/she can enter the order numbers of guest purchases to link them after WC matched certain datas (for example again the email address) as verification.
Any chance we will see that in near future? :)
I was just about to post this idea, can't believe this isn't in core to be honest. If a person buys something as a guest and then a week later signs up and buys something else, both orders should be attached to that person's account. Seems it would be as simple as just comparing the e-mail address.
