Magento 2 Customer Attributes Or Not,
Is It Really A Question?
Online shoppers hardly register an account if they do not intend to come back later. Thus, the registration form might be the very first place to start a long-term relationship with your potential customers - and it is definitely the place where conversion happens.
Always make it easy and user-friendly!
It is controversial whether to keep the registration form as short as possible or to expand it with informative fields.
We confirm: Both are good in some ways.
For example, you can offer Social Login to allow signing up in a couple of clicks. This fastens the registration process. However, you lose chances to gather trustworthy customer database as wished. Not to mention, security of social integration is sometimes vulnerable.
If you run a Magento 2 B2B website, it is required to add fields to customer registration form so that you can gather information and verify their business carefully.
This idea is supported by Magento since they introduce customer attributes features for the Enterprise Edition (or Commerce.)
