Yes, WordPress has it’s inbuilt user functions and management.
But since customers are typically NOT editors, administrators, bloggers, and do not need Dashboard access, how about removing them entirely from the WordPress system, so we can disable accounts being created, since battling spam and bogus logins is a seemingly never ending battle.
Several of the other eCommerce solutions have this functionality separate from the WordPress user system.
As an alternative, let accounts be created during checkout, regardless of what the WordPress setting for “enable account creation”, so that the easy/spam target account creation screen can be disabled.
No matter what CAPTCA, challenge/response etc, settings I’ve done. It matters not. Bots from India are creating accounts.
Unfortunately, often these are not ‘bots’ but a real people paid to create accounts.
I have had a good results with using the Stop Spammer registrations plugin (https://www.blogseye.com/i-make-plugins/stop-spammer-registrations-plugin/ ) and had almost no spam registrations since.
