Overview

The InLine Checkout is a simple and straightforward interface that follows the latest conversion optimization best practices, removing any distracting elements during your customers' ordering process.

2Checkout makes available in merchant cPanel two inline checkout flows that you may choose from, a One-Step and a Multi-Step InLIne cart, depending on the shopping experience you want your customers to benefit from via this iframe.

  • One-Step InLine offers customers a seamless shopping experience by enabling them to select a payment method, review the entire order and finally place the order in only one step.
  • Multi-Step InLine offers a different checkout experience, in multiple steps, by allowing your customers to review their billing, shipping, and payment information before placing the order.
