Streamline – Deliver a Seamless Checkout

It is crucial to avoid causing customer pain during their checkout experience when customers are ready and prepared to buy. To ensure your customers don't face any hiccups during the process, make sure you have all their table stakes in place. Standard options for payment or address validation tools to ensure a quick and easy checkout are good examples of table stakes.


Also, ensure you provide a relevant number of choices to smooth the path to purchase. Good checkout experiences have many of these features. If you see a large drop at checkout, use this list of good experiences to determine if you can change customer behavior.
