    Hi together,
    we’re big fans of your Email Verification for WooCommerce plugin and it’s been a valuable addition to our store. However, we’ve encountered a limitation that requires a workaround on our end.

    Currently, the plugin integrates seamlessly with the WooCommerce frontend and checkout functionalities. However, it doesn’t extend that integration to the wc_create_new_customer() function within the WooCommerce API when called programmatically through custom code. This means we have to implement workarounds to trigger the email verification when programmatically creating users through the API.

    Feature Request:

    We’d love to see an integration added for the wc_create_new_customer() API function. This would allow email verification to be triggered even when users are created programmatically. Implementing this feature would eliminate the need for our current workaround and streamline our user creation process.

    While this post doesn’t require you to delve into the specifics of the workaround, we’ve included a code diff (below) for your reference, in case it provides additional context for the feature request.

    Thank you for your time and consideration. We appreciate your continued development of the Email Verification for WooCommerce plugin.

    Hi Norman,

    Thanks for the feedback. We are happy that you found the plugin helpful .

    Regarding the request, I have passed your request to the development team. They will get back to you as soon as possible.

    Kind regards.


    Hi @norman-hildenbrand,

    Sorry for the delay. I didn’t test it, but maybe if you change our option Email > Email sending trigger to WooCommerce created customer, the verification email might be triggered when using the function wc_create_new_customer().

    Let me know if it helps.
