WooCommerce Social Login extension allows users to login and checkout with social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Windows Live, VKontakte (VK.com), PayPal, Amazon, LINE and login with Email.
If you have a registration system on your e-commerce website, then it take too much time of user to checkout so user get bored of it and thus it will decrease your sale. But, If you use WooCommerce Social Login, then it save user’s time so it will increase your sale.
When a customer first visits your site, you can simplify checkout by allowing them to check out as a guest. However, this introduces friction for customers that want to purchase from your store more than once (and hopefully many of them do!). They’ll have to create yet another username and password. WooCommerce Social Login makes this process as easy and secure as possible – customers can log into your site using their Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Windows Live, VKontakte (VK.com), PayPal, and Amazon accounts instead of creating a new user account credentials.
Does Woo Social Login give the linked social networks access to all of the account information for that user on our website?
No, there’s very little information that’s sent back to the social network during the initial login and after that there’s no information exchanged until the user logs in again. The only data that’s passed back and forth is login information – nothing on orders, site activity, etc. See below for what information is pulled from each network.
What happens to a customer’s account and order history if the plugin is deactivated / deleted?
Once a user logs in with a social network, a WordPress account is created for the user using his/her email address as the username and a random password. If you were to uninstall the plugin, a user can always use the “lost password” feature to create a new password and log into their account normally, rather than with their social network.
Help, my Woo Social Login buttons are not displaying! I promise I’m not logged in already.
This is most likely an issue with your theme (we’ve seen this happen several times already). If your theme overwrites WooCommerce templates, as many do, it may be missing the required action hooks to display the Woo Social Login buttons. It would be best to contact your theme author and prod them to update their templates to be compatible with the latest version of WooCommerce and include any hooks and functions WooCommerce does.
