Websphere Commerce - User types

There are 3 types of Users in WCS 

1. Generic Users - This type is assigned to the user when he lands on the site and it doesn't require to associate any id with the user. for example - A user comes to site to have a look at the catalog.

2. Guest User - A Generic user becomes Guest User when he builds a cart and hence a unique temporary id needs to be associated to the user. Once the user session is over , the existing guest user id is of no use for further user sessions.

3. Registered User - A Users becomes a Registered user when he registers himself with the site. With such user all his sessions can be linked with a particular user id.

Generic User -> Upon Adding time to Cart -> Guest User -> Upon Registration -> Registered User
