It’s no secret that checkout is probably the most important page of any online store. The efficiency and usability of the checkout page affect the conversion and your income.In this article, we’ll talk about the best usability practices, and why you don’t need One Step Checkout for your Magento 2 store.
Magento 1 CheckoutThose of you who have seen the first version of the Magento platform surely remember that the checkout on Magento 1.x consists of 6 steps:
- Billing address
- Shipping address
- Payment method
- Shipping method
- Order confirmation step
Magento 2 Checkout FeaturesSome people from the Magento community think that the Magento company has no usability experts. However, checkout is not the case. Developers of the Magento 2 understood perfectly well that success is impossible without using the best usability practices. While many of us expected Magento to implement the One Step Checkout extension into Magento 2 package, the designers rethought the idea of best usability practices on checkout and made a revolution that few people noticed. Magento 2 Checkout has only two steps:
- Delivery details
- Review and payment
- Guest checkout is now a default setting;
- Dynamic calculation of the delivery cost;
- The order summary is always visible on the checkout;
- Some new popular payment and shipping methods integrated into the platform;
- Now you can apply a coupon at checkout.
