Rarely should you need to create a new customer in Magento 1.6, however, you can easily do so if needed. A new customer can be created at any time in the Magento 1.6 Admin Backend. Once the new customer account is created the user can then log into your Magento store.

  1. Log into your Magento Admin Backend
  2. Go to Customers ->> Manage Customers
  3. magento_new_customer_1

  4. Click "Add New Customer"
  5. Fill in the fields as needed
  6. magento_new_customer_2

  7. Click "Save Customer"

As long as you checked the box "Send Welcome Email" your newly created customer will receive an email like the one below. It will contain their log in information so they can access your website.

When I create an account on the backend - It duplicates when I add the address - do you know why this is happening?

I recommend enabling error reporting as it may provide a more detailed message.

Thank you,

While creating a new customer from Admin, the checkbox 'Send Welcome Email' is not Selectable.

What could be the reason?

Should check/make any changes in System configuration etc?
