When it comes to buying, an online store's checkout experience is more important than any other element of your website. An optimized checkout page builds consumer's trust with your product and reduces abandoned carts. With WSM, you can customize the Checkout tab to receive new order notifications, create customer feedback questions, add minimum order amounts, and more. 

Viewing the Checkout tab

  1. In Web Shop Manager, hover the mouse over System and click Configuration.
  2. Click the Checkout tab.
