WooCommerce social login extension allows users to login and pay with social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Windows Live, VKontakte (VK.com), PayPal, Amazon, LINE and log in session with email.
Social Login – WordPress WooCommerce Plugin Features
After login with Twitter, It redirects me to the login page to enter email address, why?
Twitter doesn’t provide an email address when the user logs in, so we need to ask user to add email address for the first time so that we can link that email address to their account.
Does Facebook login require https site?
If you are using facebook app version 2.12 or greater then if will require https for your site. For more information please see here
Why aren’t my Woo Social Login buttons displayed? I have them set for XXX pages.
You might have been already logged in to your website :). Try this in a different browser and you’ll see login options.
Can customers still log in or change account information without linking their social accounts or if they delete it later?
Yep! This plugin ties into the existing WordPress user accounts. Your new customers are still created with customer accounts, using their email (Facebook, Amazon, Google) or handle (Twitter). They could reset passwords using their email addresses to log into your site normally.
In the case of users who have created an account with Twitter, We do prompt users to enter an email when logging in with these services.
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.
In the mean time, you can add the login buttons to any page using our shortcode: [woo_social_login] Social Login not working properly with Iphone in Google app. Why?
Social login is a web functionality. It is compatible to work with any browsers like safari OR chrome. The Google app of iPhone is an actual app and not a broswer. So this functionality is not compatible with iPhone’s Google app.
