[not a "code" question] Best Practices for working with Guest Activities?

    Are Guest Activities at all stored in XenForo Cookies? Some forum software store "forum read information" for guests. I want my guest users buying stuff on my XenForo shop, too. I thought about adding a "guestuser_id" on the cookie to track their cart activity. But are there best practices to work with that? These are some ideas:

    - once the guest user submits his personal data (email etc) its checked against the existing user base, so an existing account will be connected to the current guest user activity

    - once the guest user enters his email address in the shopping process, he will be auto-registered with a "has to change username later and accept TOS" usergroup

    - auto-register each guest when he is even only adding something to the cart, then prune their account after no interaction (lead, later-registered)

    Allow viewing (and shopping carts management), but before any transaction/personal detail entering happens they must register.
