I think you should have authentication because you aren't losing anything with it there, but can lose a lot without it. UX wise, that's a good idea because it will allow users to feel safer with that functionality in place, which ultimately increases your security which also enables user trust. To implement it, it could be as simple as: download ...

As users can begin and finish registration at different points depending on their circumstances a Wizard seems like the most practical solution. Breadcrumbs seem like a good solution but they do not provide any concept of an end point, breadcrumbs could theoretically go on forever which the user would not want. I was thinking a percentage based tracker ...

Call it an Alias I can enter email or username? The text box says Enter email/username; Should I enter both email and username? Uh... what was the username I entered while signing up? --- User If the users of your site need to identify each other, then of course use a unique handle, but call it an alias, instead of username.

Why even present it as a registration? If you simply make the fields you need part of the process simply tuck the password fields at the end. Add a simple statement like "enter a password for easy access immediately after your purchase" This way the user is simply entering information they normally would at checkout with whatever additional info you need. ...

For new users, you could make an account 'under water' by including the fields in the checkout process. You need their e-mail anyway (for sending them order feedback like subscription or order confirmation). You could generate a password and e-mail it, or let them choose it. At the beginning of the check-out process you can give existing users the ability to ...

I can tell that you're an iOS user. Android users are conditioned by the OS to explore. Android users will also understand that "Login" and "Register" are not just random words on the screen, but two actions they may choose to execute. Notice how google does not use anything in particular to make their settings items appear touchable: The reason why ...
