Web Checkout

In e-commerce, Web Checkout refers to the step-by-step journey of the customer, from the shopping cart section to the invoice generation for the purchased items, on the website of a merchant.

It starts with the aggregation of the necessary customer details like name, delivery address, payment mode information, etc., and terminates with the collection of payments, followed by the order confirmation.

The Web Checkout process runs on flexible Web Payments standards developed by W3C to harmonize financial transactions across ecosystems and permits diverse players to participate in e-commerce.
