Creating a New Customer Account in Magento 1.6

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.
