Checkout Settings allow you to customize the checkout experience for your store. Your options include:

    • Using styles to format the order form and the customer receipt emails.
    • Choosing to show cross-sell offers in the sidebar or inline below your product details.
    • Determining whether to show any available offer, or something more specific, such as only offers that you have created.

This is also the place for selecting order notifications that you would like to receive.

Information on how to configure Checkout Settings follows.

Display

Order Form Settings

  • Default Desktop Style: Your order pages for the desktop experience can use the default style, or some other style that you have created. Make your selection from the Default Desktop Style list.
  • Default Mobile Style: Your order pages for the mobile experience can use the default style, or some other style that you have created. Make your selection from the Default Mobile Style list.
  • Shopping URL: This field sets the URL for "Continue Shopping" links in your store. If you leave this field blank, the Website specified in your General Account Settings will be used. Otherwise, you can enter the URL that you want to use for the "Continue Shopping" links. (Enter the full URL, including "http://".)
  • Display Order Progress Bar: The order form can show a progress bar near the top of the page so that customers can see where they are in the order process, and what they have left to complete.

Cart Promotions

  • Cross-Sell Layout: This setting controls how your store shows cross-sell offers. With Side selected, the offers will appear on the side of the cart, and include images and descriptions. With Inline selected, the offers will appear as lines below your product information, without showing images or descriptions. (Note: This setting does not affect styles built using the Theme Gallery.)
  • Available Offer Policy: Depending on the products that are in the cart, offers from you and the product vendors may apply. This setting allows you to determine whether your store will show any available offer, only offers specifically created for your account, or only offers that you have created.

Post-Checkout

  • Customer Receipt Emails: This determines the format of email receipts that MyCommerce sends to your customers on your behalf. Choose either HTML or Text.
  • Email Order Notices: Would you like to receive order notifications by email? If this option is turned on, the emails will be sent to the Automated Email specified in your General Account Settings.
  • Email Receipt Style: MyCommerce sends email receipts to your customers on your behalf. Your email receipts can use the default style, or some other style that you have created. Make your selection from the Email Receipt Style list.
  • HTTP Order Notices: Here you have the option to receive order notifications via HTTP posts to your server. If you turn this option on, you will need to provide a URL for MyCommerce to use when sending the posts. See also HTTP Order Notices.
