Is there a way to change the option for customer login from Last Name/email address to Login Name/Password instead?

I have some customers who would prefer a password login.

Also, if this IS possible, if I convert to this, will all existing customers keep their Last Name and email as their new Login Name and Password and then be able to charge this if they choose to?

Hi Chris,

xcustomeruserid and xpassword are the two configuration settings you need to set to Yes to enable a username/password login combination.

I believe if you change these settings you will need to assign values to the existing customer's "username" and "password" fields in the customers tables. A script could be written to take the existing value from the lastname field and copy this into the username field and likewise for the email field to the password field.
