The Benefits Of One Step Checkout

Media Lounge is an authorised One Step Checkout partner and we highly recommend the OSC extension to all our clients. The OSC is the new must-have Magento extension that is taking the market by storm. It’s a total revamp of the standard checkout process in Magento with the core features reducing the six standard Magento checkout steps down to just one.

Totals and prices are dynamically updated via AJAX when shipping/payment method is selected. The user simply fills in their address and chooses delivery/payment methods on the same page, rather than having to do a separate step for each. Improving the checkout process results in more customers completing their sales, and this has an immediate impact on your bottom line. It is the single most effective technical change you can make to reduce shopping cart abandonment.

Introduction To The Magento Extension One Step Checkout

This video is a quick introduction to One Step Checkout – the powerful Magento extension, which will increase the number of successful checkout completions and reduce shopping cart abandonment.

Make It Simple

One Step Checkout simplifies the checkout process of your Magento store. Checking out is often the most complicated part of placing an order online, and many users end up abandoning their order. Some customers will be motivated enough to purchase regardless of how difficult it is – but others will be lost due to check-out complexity. One Step Checkout greatly simplifies this process, leading to an immediate increase in sales.


Standard, Professional & Enterprise Editions

We offer three editions of our checkout module: Standard, Professional and Enterprise. There are two key differences between these versions; First, our Professional and Enterprise editions fully supports the Professional and Enterprise edition of the Magento eCommerce platform. Second, our Enterprise license allows for use on unlimited domains, while our Standard and Professional edition only allows use on a single domain.

The Standard edition is not a stripped down version of our checkout module. It offers the same features, but it does not include support for the Magento Professional and Magento Enterprise editions.

General Product Information

The OSC is developed like any regular Magento extension and does not override any core classes or templates. The module is easy to install as you only need to upload three folders into your Magento root directory. The module will only add new files in the proper directories, and not overwrite any existing files.

The software package contains the following:

– All extension files to be uploaded to your Magento store

– Install guide, customization guide and user manual in our wiki

One Step Checkout is thoroughly tested and compatible with all Magento versions and editions. It utilises the JavaScript library Prototype which is already bundled with the Magento eCommerce platform. It also supports all the modern versions of Firefox, Opera, Chrome (including all Webkit browsers), Safari, and Internet Explorer.

The source code is not encrypted in any way and you are free to make customizations and changes to both the backend code as well as the frontend code. By customizing the backend code, you can add new functionality as you desire, and it is possible to add/remove new attributes (for example “How did you hear about us”) fairly simple, and much more.

The structure of the One Step Checkout files is packaged following the Magento guidelines for developing extensions, which means that any Magento web developer will be familiar with the structure and should be able to find the template and CSS files that are used with ease. The same goes for the underlying backend code.
