Log In across many stores

By | September 8, 2008

Len asks;

I have set up several related stores with osc and wondered if there was a way so that customers signing in to any one of the stores could use those credentials at any other store. I was unable to find any contributions to handle this particular set-up. Any help would be appreciated 🙂

The only way that I can think to do this would be to have all the sites using the same database. Of course in reality that’s probably impossible as you will probably have different products in each store…

So, how about if (when a person creates an account) that account is created at ALL the stores? I think this should be possible – maybe with some form of XML/Soap input. But then you have some security implications.

I’m not too sure. IF any readers have an idea, please feel free to post!

    let’s say you have a big hosting package that can handle all your domains.. So if there is a way to make the customer information to be store in a differend mysql database, and make all sites use this database for customer information ?
