Accelerated checkout is a feature that allows customers to quickly and easily complete their purchases on your Rebuy store. By enabling this feature, you can improve the overall shopping experience for your customers and potentially increase your sales. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to enable accelerated checkout in the Rebuy admin portal.

What is Accelerated Checkout (Shopify Definition)?

Accelerated or express checkouts save customer payment and shipping information so that returning customers can more quickly complete payment for their orders. When a customer returns to a store that offers an accelerated checkout method, their information is automatically filled in at checkout.

Some accelerated checkout methods can use dynamic checkout buttons on product pages. By using dynamic checkout buttons, customers can skip the cart and go directly to the checkout from the product page, using the selected accelerated checkout method. Learn how to show dynamic checkout buttons on your online store.

You can activate accelerated checkout buttons on your Shopify checkout for Shop Pay and for other payment providers that offer the options, including Apple Pay, Google Pay, Amazon Pay, and PayPal. To learn more about PayPal's accelerated checkout options, refer to supported PayPal providers.


​According to Shopify, Shop Pay increases checkout speed by 4x and checkouts going through Shop Pay have an average checkout-to-order rate of 1.72x times higher than those going through regular checkouts, meaning more Revenue for your store!

If you sell subscription products, then accelerated payment methods and wallets such as Apple Pay, PayPal Express, Shop Pay, and Google Pay can be used at some stores.

Prerequisites:

Accelerated Payment methods are currently available if you are using our Smart Cart. To set up your Smart Cart, view this help doc.


How to Enable Accelerated Checkout in the Rebuy Admin Portal

Step 1: Login to the Rebuy Admin Portal

The first step to enabling accelerated checkout is to login to the Rebuy admin portal.

Step 2: Navigate to Smart Cart Settings

After logging in, you will be taken to the Rebuy admin portal dashboard. From here, click on the "Smart Cart" tab in the navigation menu.

Step 3: Enable Accelerated Checkout

Scroll down the settings page until you find the "Accelerated Checkout" toggle. Click on the toggle to turn it on. This will enable accelerated checkout for your Rebuy store.

Step 4: Save Your Changes

After enabling accelerated checkout, be sure to click on the "Save" button at the top of the page. This will save your changes and apply them to your store.

This setting now relies on the new Rebuy Connector App Embed Block on Shopify.
Please ensure that the Rebuy Connector is enabled on your current theme. You can do that by navigating to the app embeds section of your Shopify settings and verifying that it is toggled on!

The Rebuy Connector πŸ”„ may already be enabled in your settings if you had previously set it up during your onboarding process or when enabling a separate feature which requires it. We recommend you confirming this just to be certain that it is toggled on. You can do this by clicking the link on the accelerated checkout as seen in the gif below.

Alternatively you can navigate to your Shopify settings > sales channels > online store > click "customize" on your live theme > click "app embeds" on the left-hand navigation > confirm that the Rebuy Connector is toggled on.

That's it! You have now successfully enabled the Accelerated Checkout feature on the Smart Cart. You can navigate to your store to see the Accelerated Checkout in action as seen in the above screenshot.

Example

We also have a Shop Pay option that can be enabled for Smart Cart. You can find the directions on how to accomplish that in this article.
