>> See how the extensions work together on the Full-Cycle Checkout demo <<

General settings

To start configuring Full-Cycle Checkout, please go to Stores → Configuration Amasty Extensions → One Step Checkout.

Expand the General tab.

Enable One Step Checkout - set to Yes to activate the extension.

Allow to Edit Products in the Order Summary - choose Yes to allow customers to delete products and change their quantity on the checkout page.

Finish Product Editing - Select ‘Automatically’ to trigger an update of Order Summary automatically after the quantity or product options are changed, or just leave this option in the position 'Manually'.

Enable JavaScript and HTML bundling and minifying for checkout page - set to Yes if you want to allow the extension speed up the checkout loading by minifying JavaScript and HTML code files. This way, when a customer refreshes the page, it will load noticeably faster.

To ensure the Enable JavaScript and HTML bundling and minifying for checkout page works seamlessly, make sure the One Step Checkout Cache is enabled. You can learn more on how to do that in the Cache Management section of the User Guide.

Allow Guest Checkout - enable this option to let your customers fill in the checkout form and create accounts right on the checkout page.

Let Customers Create an Account at Checkout - three options are available:

  • No - Select 'No' to forbid the creation of accounts on the checkout page for your guest customers.
  • After Placing an Order - If you select 'After Placing an Order', you will also need to enable or disable the 'Create an Account' Checkbox is Checked by Default' option.
  • While Placing an Order (optional or required) - To let your guest customers create accounts right on the checkout page, choose the 'After Placing an Order' or 'While Placing an Order' variant. If 'While Placing an Order' is chosen, set 'Yes' in the next field to allow the extension 'Automatically Log in Customers After Creating an Account at Checkout'.
Customers will be presented with the option to check the 'Create an Account' checkbox. If checked, your customer will get an email with account activation instructions after placing the order.

In the Design tab, you can configure all aspects of a one-page-checkout appearance at the frontend.

Checkout Page Title - specify a custom title for the checkout page.

Checkout Page Description - provide customers with important info, including taxes (e.g. VAT), shipping or any other payment specifics.

Include main keywords for better SEO rankings and use <html> to highlight the important points.

Checkout Text Font - specify the name of a necessary font. Use Google Fonts to pick the one you need quickly.

Then, in the fields below you can specify values that will be preselected on the checkout page by default to speed up the checkout process. The Default Values settings are optional. Therefore, you can display only those values that meet your specific requirements.

  • Payment method - specify the necessary method to be chosen by default.

To prevent issues with displaying outdated payment information when a customer changed their payment method on checkout, please do the following.

This way, payment total information will be updated right away as a customer changed billing details.

Display Billing Address On - choose where to display the billing address: either on Payment Method or on Payment Page or Below Shipping Address.

Place Order Button Position - place the button either below the order total or below the selected payment method.

When selecting 'Below the Order Total' option, beware that, besides re-positioning, Place Order button behavior may slightly change. Because of that, it may impact your customers' checkout experience, especially in case you use any third-party payment integrations. If you experience any unexpected issues, please switch to 'Below the Selected Payment Method' option.

To set the order for the checkout blocks and customize their names to improve the checkout flow, adjust the Re-order blocks via drag and drop section. In this section, you can easily rename and reorder the blocks according to your needs via drag and drop function.
