InMotion Hosting Support Center

When users register on your site, there are two parts of the process. The first is the account creation process, where the visitor's account gets added to the database.
The second part is the adddress creation, where the user enters therir address information. If you want to allow your users to register quicker and get shopping faster, you can
set the Registration process type to require only the account creation portion of the process. The user will then add the address information later on, prior to finishing their first checkout.
Changing the Registration Process Type in PrestaShop 1.5 is simple.

To change the Registration Process Type setting in PrestaShop 1.5:

  1. Log into your PrestaShop 1.5 dashboard.
  2. Using the top menu bar, hover over the Preferences tab and select the Customers option.
  3. This takes you to the Preferences : Customers screen. Find the Registration Process Type field.
  4. Select Only Account Creation for the fastest registration method, or Standard (account and address creation) for the complete, up front registration.

You have now successfully changed the Registration Process Type in PrestaShop 1.5

Hi Amelia,


IF you want to add extra fields on registration page then you can use our PrestaShop registration fields module here: which enables you to add additional fields like Text Field, Text Area, Date, Message Only, Drop Down, Multiple Select, Yes/No, and Radio/check box fields.

Also this module is also available at PrestaShop official marketplace here:

I always like the tutorial of inmotionhosting because they are quick and easy. In context of this tutorial I have two questions.

Can merchants enable a Captcha for registration page.

If yes, then how it is possible?


Secondly, if someone want to create a custom registration field, how it is possible.?

Hello Amelia,

It does not seem like there is an easy way to add custom registration fields however I found a Prestashop addon to do so. Also with the captcha there are many addons that can do this for you.

Best Regards,
TJ Edens
