Express Checkout

Note: This feature is introduced with version 1.2 of the Spartacus libraries.

Overview

Express checkout allows the user to skip all steps and sees the review summary page instantly after click “Go to checkout”.

The guard will check that the user has at least 1 shipping address and 1 payment method - if there are more it will choose default. After setup address, it will choose the default delivery mode for current configuration.

If everything has been successful, the user should be redirected to review summary. Else, he will go through the checkout steps.

In the review summary step, the user will see pre-set data, there is also the possibility to update step.

Configuration

Functionality is steering by 2 new optional properties:

  • Flag express: Allow for express checkout when default shipping method and payment method are available.
  • Array defaultDeliveryMode: Default delivery mode for i.a. for express checkout. Set preferences in order with general preferences (eg. DeliveryModePreferences.LEAST_EXPENSIVE) or specific delivery codes.
  checkout?: {
    //...
    express?: boolean;
    defaultDeliveryMode?: Array<DeliveryModePreferences | string>;
  };
enum DeliveryModePreferences {
  FREE = 'FREE',
  LEAST_EXPENSIVE = 'LEAST_EXPENSIVE', // but not free
  MOST_EXPENSIVE = 'MOST_EXPENSIVE',
}

Default Configuration

  checkout: {
    //...
    express: false,
    defaultDeliveryMode: [DeliveryModePreferences.FREE],
  };

Own Configuration

To provide your own configuration, you should extend B2cStorefrontModule config object like:

  B2cStorefrontModule.withConfig({
    //...
    checkout: {
      //...
      express: true,
      defaultDeliveryMode: ['sample-code'],
    }
  })

Configuration Specification

For default delivery mode we provide an array of values.

The algorithm will choose the first matched option from available.

Examples

We have sample data:

const [FREE_CODE, STANDARD_CODE, PREMIUM_CODE] = [
  'free-gross',
  'standard-gross',
  'premium-gross',
];
const [freeMode, standardMode, premiumMode] = [
  { deliveryCost: { value: 0 }, code: FREE_CODE },
  { deliveryCost: { value: 2 }, code: STANDARD_CODE },
  { deliveryCost: { value: 3 }, code: PREMIUM_CODE },
];
  • For defaultDeliveryMode: [DeliveryModePreferences.FREE] we can expect behavior:
availableDeliveryModes: [freeMode, standardMode, premiumMode]
result: FREE_CODE
availableDeliveryModes: [standardMode, premiumMode]
result: STANDARD_CODE
availableDeliveryModes: [premiumMode]
result: PREMIUM_CODE
  • For defaultDeliveryMode: [DeliveryModePreferences.LEAST_EXPENSIVE] we can expect behavior:
availableDeliveryModes: [freeMode, standardMode, premiumMode]
result: STANDARD_CODE
availableDeliveryModes: [standardMode, premiumMode]
result: STANDARD_CODE
availableDeliveryModes: [premiumMode]
result: PREMIUM_CODE
  • For defaultDeliveryMode: [DeliveryModePreferences.FREE, DeliveryModePreferences.MOST_EXPENSIVE] we can expect behavior:
availableDeliveryModes: [freeMode, standardMode, premiumMode]
result: FREE_CODE
availableDeliveryModes: [standardMode, premiumMode]
result: PREMIUM_CODE
availableDeliveryModes: [standardMode]
result: STANDARD_CODE
  • For specified codes defaultDeliveryMode: [STANDARD_CODE] we can expect behavior:
availableDeliveryModes: [freeMode, standardMode, premiumMode]
result: STANDARD_CODE
