WooCommerce Guest Checkout now available

Oct 6, 2020

AppMySite has now enabled guest checkout for WooCommerce apps. Your shoppers can now buy products on your apps without logging in or registering.

Earlier, checkout was only possible for your customers if they created an account and logged in to your WooCommerce app. This meant, first-time customers on your app were required to register before they could proceed with the final checkout.

A lot of shoppers abandon their purchase journey if they are prompted to login or register during checkout. Guest checkout support will thus help you provide an unfettered shopping experience to your customers. 

The checkout process for WooCommerce apps built on AppMySite now entails:

  • Guest checkout: This is a default setting for WooCommerce apps that will enable guest users to checkout without signing in or registering.
  • Show payment options during checkout: Enabling this option will allow your customers to see all the payment options available before proceeding to the final payment screen.
  • Update profile during checkout: Enabling this option will allow your customers to update their billing and shipping information, if necessary.

WooCommerce guest checkout is available for all mobile apps with code version 1.3.3 and above. Go through our release notes for more information.
