Possible to move the checkout page to the view cart page to reduce numbers of steps required?

Hi Ray. Regarding the site you just helped me out with (dreamcargalaxy.com), is it possible to combine the view cart and checkout pages? The process at the moment is...

1) View Cart (edit cart contents)
2) Checkout (enter billing address)
3) Confirm (Click Stripe button to pay)

Is it possible to just have a 2 stage process as opposed to 3?

Thank you.

Yes that would be possible with stripe since you don't charge shipping. The checkout wizard will use that process automatically if you use paypal express checkout and choose the no shipping option.

Hi Ray.

We've already run the wizard though and if I run it again it's going to overwrite files which you've already indicated to me are out-of-date, such as paymentoptions.js. You've also done a fair bit of customisation for us to get the thing integrated with Stripe so I'm feeling a bit locked down in terms of achieving this because if I break what you've done we'll be back to square one.

Is there a way of achieving this just with some support in the forum here? I just need to move the billing information form to the view cart page and circumnavigate the checkout page altogether which is no longer needed.

Thank you.

It is going to take custom coding since you are using stripe. I don't think that is something you will be able to do with advice from the forum alone.

If you can get the stripe portion moved to the cart page and working, then I may be able to walk you through the webassist portion here.

Hi Ray,

It's not the Stripe portion I need moved to the view cart page, it's the checkout portion. I'm not sure why the checkout page exists at all.
The problem is, though, that you did the Stripe integration and if I break it then I'm into serious problems and more premium support tickets on it which I've spent close to $500 on already with you.

Is there anything you can do to help?
Thank you.

You need to move the stripe portion to the view cart page in order to skip the checkout page. You can't leave the stripe portion on the checkout page if you don't want it to exist at all.

Save a backup of all of the pages before you get started. The custom scripts and updates to the payments.js file and checkout and confirm pages will be obsolete once you don't use those pages.

It is unfortunate that I wasted time working on the checkout page in premium support but that is what I was tasked to do, and when I was done it was exactly what you had asked for, integrating it into the checkout and confirm pages. It is only now you are wanting to eliminate those pages entirely. We call this a scope change or a change of requirements (some people call it shooting at a moving target).

I'll help you through the forum as much as I can so you can get it fixed. The first step will be to move the square code onto the cart page. Just remove the checkout button that is there and put the checkout with square form below the cart.

If I move the Stripe portion to the view cart page, how will I capture the billing information or order summary and order details?

Are you saying to back up everything and then run the wizard again?

You told me that you'd made a change to the payments.js file during the Stripe integration that you'd done. I'm therefore concerned that editing it will disable that.

I do appreciate what you're saying Ray and believe me I am not pleased with these change requests by the client either but I have paid a significant amount of money in premium support tickets and hoped that there would be at least some flexibility to get things just right.

I'll try running the wizard but I am 100% that it will break the whole thing and that I'll be back to square one having already spent $500 on support.

I see... you still need the checkout page for the billing information.

Why don't you just have the add to cart button go straight to the checkout page and skip the view cart page entirely? The cart is already displayed on the checkout page.

Yes, but it's a read-only cart.

If I just go straight to the Checkout page, is it possible to have the "Remove" option on the confirm cart view on that page?

I've added the column and the following code, as taken from the view cart page, but the close icon doesn't display?

<p class="eC_ItemRemove_Link max_tablet"><a href="#" onclick="waec_update('Remove','cartDC_Quantity_<?php echo $cartDC->DisplayInfo("WAUID"); ?>',this);" class="text-danger"><i class="fa fa-close" aria-hidden="true"></i></a></p>

You can add an editable cart to replace the existing cart on the confirm_cart.php page. The remove link depends on the cart's .js file that probably isn't included. You could try just adding that and it might be enough to get the remove working.
