Checkout

When clicking on the link received in response to the request:

  • There will be only those products in the cart that are transferred in the request.
    • If a different product is already added to the cart earlier by the customer, it will be removed from the cart.
    • If the customer adds another product after clicking on the link in the request, then only the last product will remain in the cart (all the products transferred in the request will be deleted).
  • Product prices:
    • Will be set in the currency that is transferred in the currency parameter.
      If the cart supports several currencies, then the customer will be able to select another currency manually.
    • Can be increased by a tax amount (VAT), if the option to add VAT on top of the price is configured and the tax percentage is more than 0% for the region of sale.
  • The customer cannot edit the cart contents (there is no option to change product quantity or delete products).
  • A promotion code (coupon) can be applied to the order in the same way as in a standard cart.
    • When creating a promotions, it must be linked to the ID of the original product. Thus, the promotion code will be valid for all dynamic products that are based on the original product and added to the cart.
    • If a discount is transferred in the request and then a promotion code is activated, then the largest of the values will be applied to the product in the cart.
    • Additional checkout link parameters for using promotion codes are non-operational.

Selling can be available in several currencies (determined by settings made when connecting).
The checkout currency parameter is transferred in the request (currency). The customer cannot select the checkout currency explicitly in the cart.

For some currencies, the customer has to select a country when ordering.
If so:

  • The Country Select List containing all the countries available is displayed in the cart.
  • If a country code is transferred in the request (customer.country), and the country is available for the cart, then it is automatically selected in the list.
    The selected country takes precedence and determines the checkout currency.
  • If no country code is transferred, but selling in the currency transferred is only available in one country, then the country is automatically selected in the list.
  • The customer can change countries when ordering. The checkout currency changes to the one available in the country in question.
