Facebook has much more information that which is asked in WHMCS signup form, you can get from Facebook: Name, Age, Location, User Likes, User events, Photos and every information present in Facebook. Why Facebook is making money from advertising? Because they has a lot of information about their users. You don't want to know who is your user and target that segment market, even offer exclusive offers to each user?

If you give more time to the user to think, the user can change their mind, a fast signup process will increase your conversions.

Add Facebook is a matter of SECURITY because we know they are real people and a MARKETING matter because we can get much more information.

Let people who know about what is safe and what the marketing is, to decide if Facebook login is good for your WHMCS signup, and why not Linkedin? They has more accurate information about the career profile, however there are more fake accounts in Linkedin than Facebook, but, they can complement.

We just changed the status of this request to 'In Progress' as one of our development teams has begun work researching and developing this very popular request.

This is a fairly large piece of work and we anticipate delivering it in WHMCS 7.3/7.4. Here's what you can expect to see:

  • The ability to turn this feature on/off
  • The ability for customers to begin the signup process using an account with Google, Facebook or Twitter
  • The ability for clients to associate their Google, Facebook or Twitter accounts with their WHMCS client area login on your website
  • The ability for clients to disassociate their Google, Facebook or Twitter accounts

It's very early days but we'll try to keep this request updated as we make progress.
