When someone registers on a Magento Enterprise site (v 1.13), where is that information stored? It could be under "Newsletter Subscribers" or "Customers", but that list wouldn't necessarily include everyone, correct? I'm trying to create a list of people that have registered but have never made a purchase.

I've got a free module available that includes a similar report

The difference is it only lists the people who subscribed to the newsletter and never purchased.

I guess you can use it as a starting point.

To retrieve such collection I'm using the following code:

    // Get the customer emails
    $orderEmailsCollection = Mage::getModel('sales/order')->getCollection()->addAttributeToSelect('customer_email');

    // Call iterator walk method with collection query string and callback method as parameters
    // Has to be used to handle massive collection instead of foreach
    Mage::getSingleton('core/resource_iterator')->walk($orderEmailsCollection->getSelect(), array(array($this, 'fillArray')));

    $collection = Mage::getModel('newsletter/subscriber')->getCollection()

Note that the fillArray callback method is simply a method to fill a protected array with the customer emails:

$this->filterOrdersEmails[] = $args['row']['customer_email'];
  • Thanks for the response! Will your module will work on Enterprise 1.13? Do you know if all people that use the registration form get added as a customer?

  • @Realto619 never tried to be honest. Give it a try and contact me if you face issues, I'll be willing to fix any issues on this version ;) May 31, 2016 at 21:06

If this is a one off process, it might be easiest to simply use a SQL query like this:

    user.entity_id, user.email
FROM customer_entity AS user
LEFT JOIN sales_flat_order AS ord
    ON ord.customer_id = user.entity_id
WHERE ord.entity_id IS NULL
GROUP BY user.entity_id;
