I am new to magento.I want to check the user provide email is already exist or not on custom registration page. I tried this with java script (apply in same file)but it shows html content in response text.

$customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer');

  "Customer Exist";

You can check this by server side and send status in response.

  • hi its working fine but reloading page .Is it possible to check this without reloading page? – Urvashi Sep 7 '15 at 7:03
  • For that you can do it two ways. 1. Do AJAX call and check it at server side and get the status in response on form submission. 2. Create java-script array of all email ids in system and check email exist in array or not after submit the form. – Akhilesh Patel Sep 7 '15 at 7:10

$email ="xyz@gmail.com";
$customer = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')->setWebsiteId(Mage::app()->getWebsite()->getId())->loadByEmail($email);
    echo "customer exists";
 echo "customer doesn't exists";

You basically have three options: Y ou could query to API (SOAP or REST) to check for existing customer with given e-mail,

you could write a custom extension that provides this functionality through JavaScript and an additional URL to query, search for existing extensions that incorporate this function.

But: The check for existing e-mail is a built-in function, although not client-side only in most of the templates available.

$customerObj = Mage::getModel("customer/customer");
    foreach (Mage::app()->getWebsites() as $website) {
        if ($customerObj->getId()) {
          $message = "duplicate found" ;
          return $message;
