This product does not include any sub-modules, you will need to get/buy those separately. This module is intended for BYZ Addon subscribers (those who have BYZ147). Although it is technically available by buying the individual modules without subscription if you wish, its not advised, as its more effective/cheaper to get subscription instead.

Demos/Samples:
(click on a link below to see the corresponding demo/sample)
Demo System Click on the "Demo System" link, then add a product to your cart and then go to the checkout and then you can see how this works.
Please note that the checkout is highly configurable, and that the demo is only showing you one permutation of how it can be configured.


This checkout brings together various separate checkout processes into a single/simple screen, where your customer only sees options that are relevant to what they've already chosen/entered and where they can simply fill in the form in one go without having to post the entire screen to perform validation of each block etc.

For example, as soon as you type in a coupon code, it will automatically be validated and a corresponding message will be displayed next to it showing the discount/explanation for the coupon (or an error message if the user typed in the wrong code).

Login/Password-Reminder are all part of the same screen, and you don't need to register as a separate process. The demo system that we've setup linked from above gives you a sample login so that you can see how the login/new-customer/pwd-reminder works.

Changed the cart-empty check to a different part of the posting process to avoid errors on the collection addresses functions.
Changed displays and validation messages etc to use language settings rather than hard-coding text in the corresponding files.

05 27-SEP-2014 Added extra logic to be able to deal with purchasing a Gift Certificate.
