Setting Up Your Store's Checkout Page

The Checkout Settings page, which is accessible from Store setup>Checkout page on your Admin panel, is where the checkout page on your front-end store is set up.

Your store's Checkout Page is where customer contact info, shipping info, and payment for purchases made on your store are collected. The actual Checkout Page is displayed to customers when they purchased something from your store.

To Set Up the Checkout Page

  1. On your Admin panel, click Store setup>Checkout page.
  2. On the Checkout Settings page, on the topmost section, select from any of the four options for your checkout procedure. Each step on the four options is split by a Continue button and breaks up the checkout process into chunks.

For example, in the case of the 4-Steps Checkout process, there will be four separate pages, namely, 1) Contact Details; 2) Shipping Details; 3) Shipping Method; and 4) Payment Method. On each of these pages, except for the last one, a Continue button will need to be clicked to go to the next page in the process.

The Checkout Options

📘

What do you recommend as an ideal checkout process option?

For a more convenient customer experience, we recommend going with the 1-Step Checkout option. However, your choice here depends really on your processes.

  1. On the next section is the Header box, which controls the header or logo shown on your Checkout Page. Upload your logo, then set the alignment to left, center, or right, then select a background color for the header via either color picker or color code.

📘

What logo sizes are acceptable?

You can upload a logo image that gets resized to a maximum of 300 pixels in height, while maintaining the image ratio. Logo images smaller then 300 pixels will not get resized.

Specifying Form Fields as Required or Optional
