I'd like to stop the need for an account to be confirmed when a user registers to be gone. On our client's website a user shouldn't need to go through the confirmation process once they've registered - they should be able to place orders immediately after they've registered without confirmation.

I have seen that you can enable non-registered users to checkout. But I would still like to get rid of the confirmation process.

Does this make sense? Anyone know how? Thanks.

  • Are you usings Joomla's default registration component?

1 Answer 1


Try going to the following in the Joomla backend:

Users >> User Manager >> Options

Then set the New User Account Activation parameter to None.

This will disable new users having to manually activate their accounts upon registration.

  • Glad it helped :)
