I want to check if a user is logged in before proceeding to checkout. On the basis of customer login condition, i want to show the login popup if not login, and redirect to checkout if logged in already.

IMPORTANT: I have guest checkout enabled in the configuration. Because I want user to checkout with guest account

I am able to redirect user to login page when not logged in. But not able to use popup instead of redirecting it to login page.

to redirect user to login page, I did the following changes in my minicart.js file:

var cc = customerData.get('customer');
    var urls = window.checkout.checkoutUrl; 
    $( document.body ).removeClass( "logedin" );
    var urls = window.checkout.customerLoginUrl;

please help me find out how to use popup login instead redirecting to login page.

I would suggest, try to implement your code as per the reference site.

Call default Magento 2 authentication popup from a custom module

  • Hi, @nits thanks for commenting. but I already tried this solution its does open the popup..but not on the first click...It requires a complete page reload to respond on click.

    @Nit, first of all, every popup requires to load the page and this popup is completely dependent on the section to be loaded, then after it will open the popup. Or there is another solution like load login field in the HTML and hide/show this HTML in the popup. This will work for you.

You can override vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/js/sidebar.js file in your theme and remove cart().isGuestCheckoutAllowed === false from if (!customer().firstname && cart().isGuestCheckoutAllowed === false) {} condition. So if customer is not logged in then it will open popup.

Original Code:

if (!customer().firstname && cart().isGuestCheckoutAllowed === false) {

After condition removal:

if (!customer().firstname) {

As per old condition, it checks if a customer is not logged and guest checkout is disabled and as per new condition it will check only if a customer is not logged in.

  • tried it already buddy..not working
