Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of Perfect Checkout, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.
In the search field type “Perfect Checkout” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found the plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.
The manual installation method involves downloading the plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.
Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.
How Is Perfect Checkout different from traditional WooCommerce Checkout Plugins?
Perfect Checkout is a first of it’s kind hosted and “headless” checkout system. Unlike traditional plugins, ours actually creates a new page in WordPress and automatically embeds our hosted checkout experience directly onto it. The plugin then sets this new page as the checkout page in your WooCommerce settings.
Will Perfect Checkout modify my current checkout – what does it actually do to my store?
Perfect Checkout does not modify your existing checkout page or modify any files on your website except to create a brand new standard WordPress page named “Perfect Checkout” which you can see in WordPress > Pages. Disabling the plugin will completely remove Perfect Checkout and revert your checkout back to the exact same setup you had before installing our plugin.
No, but hear us out: You can add your own logo, brand colors, and legal links directly in our solution. Multiple studies prove that including navigation and other distracting elements on your checkout page actually hurts your conversion rates – this is why every Shopify store, sites like Nike.com, and the majority of ecommerce sites exclude headers/footers. Having a completely clean page to embed our solution onto also guarantees you get pixel perfect UI and rock solid UX on every single store – regardless of theme or page builder used. Please take our word on this one. 🙂
Why use a hosted checkout for WooCommerce over traditional plugins?
Even with custom development, there are actual limitations in what you can modify in WooCommerce’s PHP templates – not to mention the endless problems with payment plugin vulnerabilities, bugs, and a host of other issues that simply cost you money and leave your customers questioning your stores integrity.
There is so much WooCommerce is already great at handling – we just thought the checkout handling could use an upgrade: Use Perfect Checkout to take advantage of all WooCommerce has to offer while upgrading your front end experience, payments, and security to a fully enterprise standard.
Will Perfect Checkout work with my payment processor?
Perfect Checkout currently works with Stripe, Square, PayPal, and PayPal Business. We also support payment wallets such as Google Pay (GPay) that are offered through such payment processors. We’re hard at work adding support for Afterpay, Klarna, Authorize.net and a long list of other payment solutions.
Will Perfect Checkout work with my shipping, coupon, and tax settings?
Absolutely! Our intelligent API will pick up all of your standard WooCommerce settings out of the box. Changes made to shipping, coupons, and tax in your WooCommerce settings section will reflect in real time on your new checkout – pretty nifty if you ask us. 🙂
Will Perfect Checkout work with my third party plugins?
Most likely! It seems every hosted checkout solution tries to re-invent things like shipping, coupons, and tax settings that you probably already spent a lot of time setting up. We know that as you grow, your store often requires more advanced plugins to handle things like advanced shipping rates or discounts. Luckily, our API is extremely good at picking up these additional plugin settings and works with the majority of them. We encourage you to try the demos and let us know if you need support for a specific plugin that doesn’t work as expected.
Where can I report bugs for the helper plugin?
You can notify us via the support forum – be sure to search the forums to confirm that the error has not already been reported.
