Set up user authentication

Authentication allows users to buy items in the Web Shop and see unique offers in the catalog.

Key features of the Web Shop with authentication:

  • Multiple authorization methods in the Web Shop.
  • Set up personalized storefronts and promo codes for authorized users.
  • Compliance with regional laws and regulations for the protection and processing of personal data.
  • Rate limit and DDoS protection.

You can choose one of the following authentication methods:

  • User ID authentication:
    • Simplifies the integration of the Web Shop with the game.
    • The user ID authentication widget does not require registration and password entry — you can use the user ID from the game or social network to log in to the game.

Use user ID authentication if Xsolla Login isn’t set up in your game.

  • Authentication via Xsolla Login:
    • Provides a wide range of authorization methods: social networks, one-time codes or links, and login and password.
    • Allows you to customize the Xsolla Login widget.
    • You can impose age restrictions on authorization.

Use Xsolla login authentication if this solution is already set up in your game.

Next steps

  1. Test Web Shop in sandbox mode.
  2. Publish the site.
