How to let customers reset their account passwords while in checkout

A customer of mine got in touch with me because they were having a hard time completing checkout because they could not remember their account password. This made me notice that there is no "forgot password" option in our checkout and I'm wondering how to add one. I was in touch with Squarespace support who said that the only way to reset an account password is to go to www.honoremill.org/account but a customer wouldn't know to do that. My thought is to could create a "forgot password" hyperlink linked to the above URL in step 1. of the checkout screen, but not sure how to do that since the customization of the checkout screen is limited to theme colors, fonts, etc. Any thoughts or ideas are much appreciated!

Thanks,

John

Wondering about this as well - having trouble finding anything on Squarespace's FAQ/Forums that would indicate this is possible

 

Edit: From Squarespace's FAQ page on Customer Accounts, it appears that they have intentionally not added this feature.

"Customers, members, and donors can only reset their password when they try to log into their account before checkout. The option to reset their password doesn't appear on the checkout page."

You cannot modify the checkout but you can make it easy for customers to reach their account or reset their password by adding an account login link in your navigation menu. 

All version 7.1 sites and some version 7.0 templates automatically create an account login link but if you’re using a different version 7.0 template, or want to add this link elsewhere on your site (except the checkout) you can create a link manually using the /account/login url.
