One of the steps to tighten security for an OpenCart 1.5 store would be to require new customer approval before they can log in.  The following tutorial walks you through enabling the customer approval required setting in the Administration Dashboard.

How to Enable Customer Approval Required in the OpenCart 1.5 Administration Dashboard

  1. Login to the Administration Dashboard as an Administrator
  2. Hover over the menu bar where it says SALES then CUSTOMERS. Click on CUSTOMER GROUPS
  3. Select the Default Customer Group then click on EDIT on the far right to proceed
  4. Next to the Approve New Customers option select YES to enable the option
  5. Select SAVE in the upper right hand corner to save your selection.

The Approve New Customers option in the Settings of the OpenCart 1.5 Administration Dashboard is another way to increase security on your store so that no one can login to the store without first being approved.

I am using OpenCart © 2009-2018 All Rights Reserved.
The option to Approve customers does not exits in this Opencart version if there is another option that removes this option it should be mentioned within the article. On the plus side and as someone who has not used your facility before, your instructions are very well structured and easy to follow :-)

I Looked for a Long Time, and Still Don't see a Approve Customers Option.  And Customers Can't log in.  So I assume they need to be Approved Before they can Log In.  :--)
