New Feature - One Page Checkout Form - UPDATED 5/22/2012




  • girlshorseclothes

    Shakes.... The Stripe thing seems to be saying it will automatically transfer the payments to  your bank account.

    So from Tomas' post above, I assume eventually the 2 page checkout will be phased out and we'll be left with the simple and plain checkout again with only our logo. Well, let me know when, cause I'm gonna have to get something else setup. Unfortunately, I have no interest in going back to the plain white checkout page that looks like the customer is being taken off my site. That was OK when I first started and didn't even accept credit cards, but it's not OK now. Professional just goes out the window when buyers get hit with a plain, white checkout.

    Wizard: I didnt get anything in my email like amazing suggested, but the info can be found under your Account>API keys

    littleonlinestore - The 2 page checkout will not be phased out until after the 1 page checkout supports CSS and everyone has had time to transition their custom CSS.

  • 405media

    FYI for those trying to setup stripe, just did painlessly.. and they even have a test area that you can use.. I've included screenshots of how to do that... their stats even show test orders vs real/Live orders. To test, your account must be in test mode, then you copy the API keys and enter them into highwire... then place an order with test cc # as shown... then you will see this works in two or single page checkout...Be sure to switch to live, then recopy the "live" api keys when you are done and put those in highwire.

    girlshorseclothes - Yes. You can have funds automatically transferred to an account with all the gateways. But, without going into detail, that process adds an additional layer of complexity to my current business model. Like I said earlier, that may change in the future.

  • Alex Romanoff

    Wow! Stripe up and running at Tokyo Stamp! Thank you everyone for the hints and screen shots, that was pretty painless.

  • littleonlinestore

    OK, thanks Tim. I guess I misread when Tomas had mentioned the coding issues and the reason why the Accept TOS and Returns Policy would not be on the 2 page checkout. It seemed like the customization was the issue. No, I absolutely don't care if we get that on the 2 page checkout. I only see that on downloads and don't think I've ever had to do that before. Well, maybe Godaddy but that's it I think. Not that I don't think it should be on the one page, but it's not an issue with my store. I am not a manufacturer etc.

    I took the advice seen here, and added a credit card option to my site, just because I too see a lot of abandoned carts - so I just added Propay. Don't know much about it, but had a few people use it this morning. The thing is, it just occurred to me, the Propay orders will not be able to be included with the rest of my orders from various venues in my shipping program (I use Inkfrog SmartShipping and love it).  Arghhh. It's just always something. So, with that said, I too would VERY MUCH love to see Paypal Advanced as an option. Do you guys have any plans to add it? 

  • 405media

    I agree, even though just added stripe myself, they take 7 days to deposit funds to your account... Currently I typically use funds same day now with paypal, so using paypal advanced would still be a better option for me if Tomas can get that to work... or at minimum add the credit card logos as an option even to the paypal option... just took another call just now where the customer told me they didnt have a paypal account... so please add this, 90% people dont know what paypal is, and just simply need to show the card logos.

  • Traci Tran

    So just to verify - is the reason people want to use Paypal Advanced, and not Pro, is because it doesn't have the $30 monthly fee?  Otherwise, is Pro a good way to go? Because if so, I'm have no problem with just going with Paypal Pro (and don't need Paypal Advanced). The fee is a very small price for me to pay, if it means I don't have to manually enter orders into my shipping program each day. 

  • 405media

    Babyface, personally I see no reason anyone would want pro over advanced... look at the screenshots... pro has a higher monthly fee, and fees are the same. Only thing you get with pro is a virtual terminal - but for those times, square and likewise services offer the better solution and rate. (2.7 vs 3.1) .. Seems advanced would be best integration solution for most of us on highwire... you get the funds instantly, it offers the on site processing vs pushing to paypal site with standard.  If you don't need funds instantly and you are in the US, the stripe is a better choice - lower fees, and easy to setup thanks to Tomas now.

    I just noticed that if you view the 1 Page Checkout Form in IE 8 the Order Summary box is off the screen and can't be viewed.

  • Tim

    flagdiscounter - Can you attach a screen image of this issue displaying your entire browser window?

  • Traci Tran

    Thanks 405.  OK, well, hopefully there will soon be a way then to do the Advanced. For now I have no choice but to pay the fees for Pro - simply because the Paypal payments will be picked up by our shipping program and the payments processed by other companies are not, and I don't have the time to manually add orders, nor do I have the time right now to start looking into a new shipping program. I actually really love the InkFrog SmartShipping - I can literally do 100 orders, from 3 different venues, all at once in just minutes. And it's also then my go-to place to look up any past orders, regardless of where they purchased from (our website, Amazon, or our Ebay store). So for now, guess I'll pay $1 a day for convenience. Fingers still crossed for Advanced though....  

  • Tim

    babyface - inkFrog's Smart Shipping allows you to manually enter orders using the 'Add Order' feature.  You can use this for your Propay orders.  It may not be as ideal as the orders importing but will allow you to purchase labels for those shipments.

  • David Armstrong

    Tim  --  Here is the screenshot.using Internet Explorer 8


  • Traci Tran

    Tim - Yes, I know about that feature. Unfortunately I just don't have the time for this. If we had a couple orders a day it wouldn't be a problem, but we have a large volume, so entering orders manually is not an option for us. 

  • girlshorseclothes

    Does the shipping program you are using allow you to upload a FILE of orders?

    I use, and I do have to do the step of exporting my orders from Highwire.    Once I have done that (and saved the file with the same name as I always use, over-writing yesterday's file)... then fetches the info and populates it just like they do my Amazon and eBay orders.

    I am not suggesting that you use I am just suggesting that, perhaps, the shipping program you are using DOES accept uploading from a file.  

    Yes, you do have to make some time to do the one-time set up (mapping the fields from the Highwire file) but once you do that, it is done.   And, yes, it really would be nice to not have to do that step of exporting my orders and saving the file as type Excel, name .xxxxxxx.      But... it's what I do!

    ALSO, be careful ---  you can run into problems because people want their order shipped to the ship to address they entered during check out --- NOT the address of record in their PayPal account!       I used to try to watch for that difference, when I was shipping through Paypal Multi-Order Shipping and only using Paypal to accept payment.        MUCH BETTER, now that I import all my order info from Highwire.    (Even when still using Paypal MOS, I would delete whatever popped up because it had been paid by paypal... prefering to import ALL orders from Highwire, so I had the address they used at checkout).



  • girlshorseclothes

    I, too, am paying $$ for the convenience of having ALL my orders shipping in ONE SPOT.      It's 16$ a month, I think (for but it lets me have my Amazon, eBay, and Website orders all in the same spot.  


    I COULD use Paypal MOS and import files from Amazon and Highwire...   but.... I finally decided to spring for the 16$ a month (after taking advantage of the free first month and the 10$ postage coupons for the next 4 months)..... .... I NEVER THOUGHT I would be willing to pay for the ability to not have to cut off the Paypal and eBay ads from the labels, and to not have to reload the label sheets that had only printed on one side through Paypal.

    BUT..... I'm worth it!    ;)       

    (It was never that my business could not "afford" it.... it's that I am CHEAP and did not feel it could be justified!)

  • girlshorseclothes

    I actually never did get css set up for my check out page.     I meant to, but I never did, and I guess I forgot about it.   

    I DO AGREE that it would look much better/much more professional if I DID have it set up.       That will need to be my next expenditure, I think.

    (That said... my current template is mostly white, so maybe that is why I have forgotten about getting it done.... when I do put in orders myself (when the customer calls), it is not such a large difference.      I am sure that other people DO NOTICE, and I am just used to it... but, still... there is not a stark contrast, being that my site is mostly white.

  • Traci Tran

    You know, I'm not sure. I will check on that though - thanks!  

    I too have had many issues with the different addresses - gotta watch that! :(

    There is no place to edit the Order Sumery on the One Page Check Out.
