Forcing registration before adding to cart

Hello,

I'm trying to add my e-commerce site to google Merchant and I have some policy question.

We have on our site a special mechanism that calculates the best delivery option for you based on your postal code and floor (we sale furniture). The user can see the product price, description, condition and every thing but he can't add to cart unless he is logged in. Will I have a problem?

Thank you,
Ido.

Yes,

You can not force users to register before buying.

I recommend you remove this function and find a non forceful way to show the delivery costs, for example by adding a post code look up system.

hope it helps

Hi,

As suggested by Emmanuel F, this is not the right step to restrict the user to add the products to the cart without login.

Instead, you should ask to sign in/sign up when user continues to buy the products in the cart.
