Not liking the eCart 6 Checkout experience

Not liking the eCart 6 Checkout experience

Is there a way to create the eCart 5 checkout experience in eCart 6? My client was very happy with the checkout page in eCart 5 that allowed his customers to enter their Billing, Shipping and Credit Card information on the Checkout page. In eCart 6 the shopping cart page is now part of the Checkout page and the credit card input is now part of the Confirmation page, we do not want that. The only reason we upgraded was to be able to use the PayPal Payments Advanced feature that wasn't available in eCart 5. I did not expect a complete change to the checkout experience.
What are my options here?

The eCart 6 checkout experience was created to reflect modern eCommerce best practices.

It has become a widely adopted best practice to not have the customer enter the credit card information until the end of the checkout experience.

When having the credit card entered at the checkout page, the information needs to be stored in a session and passed from page to page. this is seen by many as a security risk. by entering the credit card on the final step, it does not need to be passed through the session, so the security risk is eliminated.

the checkout ecart 6 checkout wizard will not create the eCart 5 checkout page with credit card details entered on the credit card page.

you would have to hand code this if you really wanted that work flow.
