Simplify The Checkout Process Of Your Magento Store

Media Lounge is an authorised OneStepCheckout (OSC) partner and we highly recommend it to all of our clients. OSC is the new must-have Magento extension that is taking the market by storm. OSC is a total revamp of the standard checkout process in Magento. The core feature is that it reduces 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.

To help maximise profits, you should do everything you can to make sure your customers complete the purchase.

  • Reduce checkout steps from six to one
  • Simplify the checkout process
  • Provide a better customer experience
  • Avoid confusing customer with registration
  • Disable unwanted fields like company, fax and more
  • Redirect directly to checkout after adding a product to cart
  • Possibility to show popup after placing an order for extra confirmation
  • Set a default shipping method, payment method, country, etc
  • Supports UPS/FedEx shipping methods with external lookup
  • Accept coupon codes directly in the checkout
  • Disable/enable/force customer to register while purchasing
  • Automatically create an account for new email addresses
  • A ton of configuration settings in the Magento backend
  • Use GeoIP lookup to auto-detect customers country/city
  • Reduces the original Magneto Checkout process from six steps to one!

OSC dramatically simplifies the checkout process for your customers. All unnecessary questions are removed and all the steps are combined into one. 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.

Increase Sales

Our customers say that OneStepCheckout increased their sales even up to 60%

Reducing shopping cart abandonment will have a significant and immediate impact on your sales. It is probably the single most effective technical change you can do to increase sales!

It’s Easy For You

OSC is easy to integrate and fully compatible with your Magento store.

When you purchase OneStepCheckout we can install it on your server – free of charge. Using the embedded administration panel in Magento, you will have full control of the checkout and you can adjust the OSC to your liking.

Make It Simple

OneStepCheckout 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 orders will be lost due to check-out complexity. OneStepCheckout greatly simplifies this process, leading to an immediate increase in sales.

Standard, Professional And Enterprise Edition

We can off three editions of our checkout module: Standard, Professional and Enterprise. There are two key differences between these versions; First, out 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.

Product Comparison

OSC Standard can only be used for the Magento Community edition, while OSC Professional can be used with Magento Professional edition, and OSC Enterprise can be used on Magento Enterprise (as well as all Professional and Community 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

OneStepCheckout is thoroughly tested and compatible with all Magento versions and editions. It utilizes 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 OneStepCheckout 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.
