      Hi Hisocial,

      The data that was provided in this mostly deals with B2B websites. However, while we were delving into data from B2B versus B2C, there was not a ton of difference in the results, except in the case of ecommerce. If there was an option for the user to sign in as a guest instead of providing their info and creating an account, they would definitely sign in as a guest instead. I think, based on my experiences with Formstack and as a user, that it is a reasonable assumption to think that B2B users are more prone to filling out forms.
