Delete a customer's info?

in Help edited November 2009
Hey there,

I'm setting up an e-commerce solution with FoxEE, but I had some early trouble getting FoxEE and FoxyCart to communicate for Single Sign On to work. Now, I think I have them setup right, but FoxyCart already has my fake user account info in the system. How do I delete this info from FoxyCart so that I can test the account creation? Since the user wasn't created in EE, I can't delete them there, and I can't find any other place to manage customer information on FoxyCart's site.

Thanks for your help!

    heinously - In a heinous manner
    heinousness - The property of being heinous
    from the French haine, which is correctly pronounced hainous as it was formerly written, is such a palpable error that no lexicographer can be ...


    I assure you, we did not have evil intentions when we built FoxyCart. :)

    That being said, I agree, it's pretty lame to have to build a system on your end just to modify a record so someone can checkout. Please vote for the ability to modify a customer from the admin on our feature requests page:

    It may not actually be there yet... which means you're the first to discover our flagitious shortcomings. :)

  • hahaheheeee....

    FlagitiousCart just doesn't have the same ring to it. ;)

    But the .com's available, so it's a winner!
  • Ha ha! Didn't realize that I need to watch my colloquial word appropriations. :-D

    Request is in:

    Accidentally posted it as anonymous, but what the heck.

    Tookings: thanks! I'll check out the script.
