Although WordPress and WooCommerce can help you with some easy and straightforward ways to get started with your site and e-commerce, they don’t offer solutions out of the box to verify customer emails, and this is a very important feature for any site that allows users to register.

Without verifying user emails you’re probably going to deal with more fake users or bots in your site and the value of your emails will also be lower regarding marketing purposes as you can’t make sure there is a human behind that email address, besides many other drawbacks.

One possible solution to solve that is to use a plugin that can handle all the issues related to that matter. That’s why you don’t need to look any further. Email Verification for WooCommerce by WPFactory is a very versatile plugin that presents many options in order to verify customer emails. Let’s dive in and see some of the features.

The plugin allows you to verify user emails as soon as they register on your site, or you can also verify emails from your current customers. It’s also possible to manually verify, unverify, and resend the email activation via dashboard from a very user-friendly interface. And you don’t need to verify every user if you don’t want to. You can ignore verification by user role. The administrator by default doesn’t need to be verified for example.

In order to clean up your users base and keep only the valid users, you can automatically remove the unverified ones on a customized frequency, like every day or week for example. That’s a great way of eliminating spam registrations.

And it’s not only that. You can choose if you want to send the verification email in a proper and separate email or if you want to append it to the “Customer new account” email from WooCommerce. Even if you use some custom email, created by a third-party plugin or not, you don’t need to worry as you can append the verification email to it as well. If you decide to send the verification email separately, you can delay the “Customer new account” email and the customers will only receive it if they verify their accounts.

It’s also possible to block part of the content, like pages, to unverified users if you wish.

And you can get all of that for free! We didn’t talk about any Pro features until now. With Email Verification for WooCommerce Pro by WPFactory, you can customize the verification email completely, including the email subject, content, and the template, which is important if you want a beautiful email that looks like a full HTML email from WooCommerce and not only a plain text one.

You can also decide if you want to send an email to the admin every time a user verifies his email.

There are more options to block part of your content to unverified users, like specific products or guests from adding products to the cart, or the very checkout or “thank you” page. Or even some of the emails from WooCommerce like “Order on-hold”, “Processing order”, “Completed order”. You can even add some users to a denylist, therefore they won’t be able to verify their accounts.

If you need to connect to the site via REST API to verify the users, that’s not a problem too as the plugin also has an endpoint specifically for that reason.

And if you use some social login plugin to register users from their social profiles like Facebook, Google, etc., you are also safe. The Pro version offers compatibility with a lot of different social plugins including Nextend Social Login, WooCommerce Social Login by Skyverge, and many others. The compatibility options will automatically verify the emails from user accounts that are logged in or registered from such social logins.

The activation link, which the user needs to click in order to verify the account, can expire and you can control how long it’s going to take until it does.

Finally, we can’t forget that sometimes, users simply want to change their emails, and it’s up to you to decide if the new email needs to be verified or not. Guess what? There is also an option for that. And if you want to automatically verify a user that has reset his password you can also count on an option for it.

10 reviews for Email Verification for WooCommerce

  1. Alongar

    Email Verification for WooCommerce is a must have and this plugin does not disappoint. Very lightweight, well coded and works great. The support from the author is outstanding.

    I had an issue with a 2FA plugin (notably: WP 2FA – Two-factor authentication for WordPress) that was conflicting with the Email Verification plugin and the author of this plugin (Email Verification for WooCommerce) fixed the issue quickly and made it compatible with the 2FA plugin in the most recent release update [2.2.2].

    Email Verification for WooCommerce is the best plugin to verify customer emails during registration.

  2. pvpasia (verified owner)

    Friendly Author fast response to fixed the problems and high efficiency to dev “Smart” template.

  3. mcb (verified owner)

  4. David (verified owner)

  5. R Kirschner

    Great plugin and support is excellent. Had a hiccup off the bat but was resolved quickly!

  6. Michel Pompas (verified owner)

    Very good plugin, which is perfectly suited to WooCommerce.

    The support is really responsive and very competent!

    Do not hesitate to invest in this plugin if you want to set up an activation system.

  7. Bernard Street (verified owner)

    Thank you! Email verification for Woocommerce works great and was just the right puzzle piece for my sign ups. I needed something that worked alongside PMPRO, Buddyboss and Woocommerce, so it was a tricky ask. I tried the free version to check it suited my needs and was very happy with the result, and then quickly purchased the pro version for additional features. Support is amazing and super responsive. Lots of options to customise and Pro version integrates with Super Socializer and other login plugins as well.
    Thanks again!

  8. Jordan Dayton (verified owner)

    This is an exceptional plugin if you are looking to require email verification when a new customer signs up (and you’re using WooCommerce.)

    I used the free plugin that’s coupled with the WooCommerce Booster plugin, and a few others, but NO OTHER PLUGIN even comes close to this plugin in the amount of customization and advanced features that are available here, with this “Email Verification for WooCommerce” plugin.

    Six stars out of five! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

  9. Florin (verified owner)

    Bought this plugin just for what it does, and its actually working very great. Compared to other plugins that serve the same purpose, this one has a lot more options and when I say that I refer to the ones available for the admin side, one of those would be overriding the verification method in case the emails don’t get sent for any reason. I recommend this plugin to everyone using WooCommerce. There is one thing I’d like to see, and that would be having this plugin work also on websites without WooCommerce.

  10. Arturo (verified owner)

    The plugin works great and support is superb. It works as described, helping me to validate new accounts upon purchase and having good standing users in the website. It is compatible with plugins and custom checkout pages. The features are the ones needed for my site.
