I have been noticing that not many people register on my site now since they are no longer required to do so when placing an order. I LOVE THAT ~ I know I can change it but I don't want to, I think more people order now because it was confusing. I did notice though that when I added a user group "Customer" it shows up when I am creating a new product page ~ at the bottom of the page it says "Buying this product will place <the buyer> in" with check boxes for the different user groups. Will they automatically become registered? I would like to be able to market to them in the future easily and this seems to be the easiest way.
