Follow best practices of physical market on e-commerce!
Today, any merchant protects his physical store, in addition to its key, with another way of gaining access as a digital code or fingerprint scanner. The advantage is twofold : securing the store by avoiding intrusions and protecting against loss of key. This method is called : two-factor authentication (key + digital code). It can be more factors, it depends on the security policy chosen by the merchant.
What appears obvious to a physical store, is less for an online store.
Email / password is more and more associated with another access control as the USB Yubikey. This strong USB device, developed by Yubico, generates an unique token (called One-Time-Password) each time you press the button on the USB stick.
If a hacker - or your competitor ;) - manage to get your email / password, it couldn't connect without the Yubikey. Same, if you lose your Yubikey.
