What does Commerce Kickstart User module actually do?

I have disabled Commerce Kickstart User and shipping modules,
basically as it was the only way that I could get rid of the shipping pane in the checkout process (I am making a site with digital downloads only)
So far , no problems.. does anybody know what exactly "Commerce kickstart user" module does ? and what are the ramifications of disabling it?

Thank you

It provides customizations to the user pages (user/%uid).

That said, if you're doing a digital site, you don't need half of Kickstart's modules, so basing it on Kickstart is a bad idea.
Just roll your own install profile using the modules that you need.
See github.com/bojanz/fakedin for an example digital install profile (subscription levels + selling entity creation).

Hi Bojanz , many thanks for your reply.
I have downloaded the fakedin profile , but cant seem to install the distribution (I am new to Drush) .
I have navigated to the directory and run drush make and it gives me an error..
"file_get_contents(): Filename cannot be empty make.utilities.inc:471 [warning]
Invalid or empty make file: "

Any help would be most appreciated ! thank you
