To make sure that customers can create a store account, check your Shopify Customer Accounts settings.
Set your Shopify Customer Accounts settings to: Accounts are optional
If you choose Accounts are Optional: Your customers will have the option to create an account at the end of the checkout process or sign-out as a guest. In both cases your customers will be added to your loyalty program and earn points for their purchase.
Shopify form option settings
