Is there (or could there be) an ability for us to somehow "associate" newly registered users with an order(s) they placed as a guest?
My concern is that I'm stuck losing sales if I require them to register before ordering. I can tell them all day in notes, terms of service agreement or any method that they won't be able to view past orders if they register after ordering, but even "if" they listen, that makes for poor customer service.
That said, it would be valuable to store owners and our customers if we could manually associate "guest" orders to active subscriber accounts at the administrative level.
*Ability to un-delete a registered customer would also be of HUGE help here. As I tried deleting a registered customer in an ill-fated effort to assign their email address to the guest account that was attached to their order - basically changing it to a registered account, except the response was "e-mail address is already in use" even after deleting their registered account.
Thanks for considering this, if it isn't already implemented or on the roadmap! :)
