For any e-commerce website, simple-to-advanced, Magento is probably the most complete, free and open source solution out there.
And, it can be improved further so easily with professional extensions in the market.
Magestore, a popular Magento extensions provider, has a fresh extension for improving the checkout process which is called Magento One Step Checkout.
The extension helps minimizing the abandoned cart rate by enabling customers to view the basket and fill the shipping + payment information in only one step.
This checkout page is smart and auto-updates itself when needed without any refreshes (like the change in address, shipping type, etc.).
It also supports applying coupon codes and gift messages or running simple surveys still on the same page and comes ready with multiple payment options (PayPal, credit cards, SagePay..).
1 Step Checkout works with all 3 checkout modes (register, logged in, guest) and has built-in Geo-IP detection for simplifying the process further by auto-filling address details as much as possible.
There is also a unique feature called “Web-POS for admin checkouts”. Using this feature, it is possible to complete offline sales as an existing user or guest. Again on a single page, the store admins can search for the product, add it to the cart quickly and complete sale.
The extension is a must check for any Magento website and there is a detailed comparison of it with other well-known checkout extensions.
