The One Page Checkout Every NopCommerce Store Should Have
A quick and clutter-free One Page checkout is something an e-commerce store cannot go without nowadays. Every store owner puts a lot of effort into bringing buyers to their e-commerce website with the intention of making a purchase. However, all that effort can go to waste if the customers abandon their carts due to a clumsy or slow checkout.
Being store owners ourselves, we faced the dilemma of using the default nopCommerce checkout or developing a better, single-page checkout plugin for nopCommerce users to benefit from.
To explain the logic behind our decision to choose the latter, we would like to get you familiar with the available checkout options for nopCommerce.
NopCommerce Default Checkout
There are essentially two default options you can choose from when setting up your NopCommerce store:
1. A standard checkout - with a progress bar that allows the customer to check his progress
2. A checkout accordion - requires several clicks for proceeding through the different checkout steps
Both default options demand at least six steps for the customer to place an order. To update the purchase information, they have to go back and forth before completing the whole checkout process.
Furthermore, the purchase information they provide is not visible throughout the whole checkout process.
It happens often that a customer enters a shipping address and then selects a payment method that contains a different address. To avoid conflicts with the bank, he or she decides to change the shipping address by going back 2-3 steps. This can turn out to be very frustrating.
The disadvantage is obvious. The process is too long and can be confusing to the point that a customer might end up abandoning their shopping cart.
After the customer has made up his mind and has added his desired products to the shopping cart, purchasing them should be as easy as a snap of fingers.
So then you might be thinking, what other choices do I have?
Luckily for you, we at Nop-Templates have created a plug-in that makes the checkout process a delightful experience for your customers.
