How to Configure the Checkout Options

Configuring the Checkout options for your WooCommerce online Store

The checkout Options of WooCommerce will allow you to configure the use of coupons, to define the pages and URLs used by the concrete Checkout process components and most importantly a way to manage the existing payment methods. In the next few lines of this tutorial we will review all of the options related to the Checkout Process which you are provided with.

 

Before you can start with the configuration of concrete payment method you will need to first configure the Checkout Options supported by your Store. This can be easily achieved if you access the admin area of your Wordpress application and then by navigating to the WooCommerce>Settings>Checkout page.
