I have posted a package about how to support Facebook login for your store several days ago. But, the Google Plus login should also be useful for your store. So, I have implemented a Google Plus login plugin both for glass gray and bootstrap template.
In this article, I will illustrate how to integrate this plugin into your store. Please apply it for your store as follows:
Step 1. Go to the Google Developers Console to create a project for your store.
- In the Project name field, type in your store name.
- Just use the default project id generated automatically by google
Step 2. In the left sidebar, click APIs & auth > APIs menu to enable google+ API.
Step 3. Click Credentials menu to create new Client ID.
- Check Web application checkbox
- Copy the CLIENT ID that will be used in tomatocart admin panel.
Step 4. Click Consent screen menu to enter information that will be shown to your users whenever you request access to their private data using your client ID.
Step 5. Download google_plus_login.zip from dropbox.
Step 6. Unzip the package and copy following folds into your tomato cart root directory:
Note: if you had renamed the default admin directory, please rename the admin fold with your own and then copy it into your tomato cart root directory.
Step 7. Go to admin panel > Start menu > Modules > Services to enable the google plus login service.
- Set the status field to True
- Enter your client id
Now, when your users access your store front, you could login in your store with his own google account.
Once the user is logged in, his profile information will be stored in the database. You could verify it under admin panel > start menu > Customers.
That’s it. It should be not difficult for you to support google login feature for your store by yourself. If you need my assistance, don’t hesitate to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org. I prefer to provide free technical support for arrive users.
