Guest Checkout

Note: Spartacus 4.x is no longer maintained. Please upgrade to the latest version.

Note: Spartacus 4.x was tested with SAP Commerce Cloud versions 1905 to 2205. Spartacus 4.x has not been verified to work with (and is not guaranteed to work with) SAP Commerce Cloud 2211 or later releases.

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

Spartacus supports guest checkout, which is a feature that allows users to check out without creating an account. After making a purchase, a guest user has the option to create an account with the email address they provided during checkout. If an account is created at this point, the account retains the order history of the user, as well as the personal details that were entered during the guest checkout process.

Enabling Guest Checkout

Guest checkout is disabled by default, but can be enabled in spartacus-configuration.module.ts by setting the guest flag to true in the checkout configuration. You can enable guest checkout, as shown in the following example:

  checkout: {
    guest: true

Using Guest Checkout With Express Checkout

Spartacus allows you to enable guest checkout and express checkout at the same time. When both features are enabled, guest checkout is not affected by any configurations for express checkout because express checkout is only available to registered users who are signed in.

For more information on express checkout, see Express Checkout.

Extending Guest Checkout

Guest checkout leverages the existing pages and components from the standard checkout, so you can extend guest checkout in the same way that you can extend the standard checkout feature. For more information, see Extending Checkout.
