Last modified: April 8, 2023
There are going to be times when you might need to disable a customer’s account on your Shopify store. This could be because the customer has not made a purchase from your store for a long time or there could be some fraudulent activity on an account that you would like to remove from your store.
You might also have a customer request that their account be deactivated. There are numerous reasons for this but under many laws, this must be done within a relevant time period. Finally, you might also have changed the direction of the business and old customers don’t now match the direction of your business.
There is an easy process that allows you to disable a customer’s account on your store. Here are the instructions on how you can disable your customers’ accounts. There are also apps that can help you manage your customers, you can find one of those apps here.
Step 1: Log in
Log into your Shopify account using your user credentials.
Step 2: Customers
Before you complete this task, you have to be sure that your customer has activated an account on your Shopify store. If they haven’t, then you cannot deactivate the account. If the customer has not made an order yet, then you can just delete them from your records instead.
If you know that they’ve created an account, then you can access your ‘Customers’ section by finding the option on the left-hand menu as you’ve logged into your account on Shopify. Once you’ve found the option, click on it.
Step 3: Select Customer
You will see a list of customers display on your screen. Within this list will be the customers that you want to deactivate. Select the customer that you would like to deactivate by clicking on their name.
Step 4: Disable the Customer’s Account
Once you’ve selected the customer, you will be directed to the page that shows all the information that is relevant to the customer. To disable the customer’s account, you need to click on the option that reads, ‘Disable Account’. This option has a ban-sign beneath it. The option is very clear and easy to find.
If a customer has not activated an account, then the disable account line will not be there for you to click upon.
As soon as you click on the option, a new dialogue box will appear that will ask you to confirm that you wish to disable the account. You need to click on the ‘Disable Account’ button that is at the bottom of the window to confirm. This will remove the customer’s account from your website. You cannot undo this action.
