Default checkout overview

Magento checkout is implemented using the UI components. Out of the box, the checkout consists of two steps:

  • Shipping Information
  • Review and Payment Information

The checkout totals and the corresponding side-bar are only displayed after the first step is completed.

The only exception is checkout of virtual and/or downloadable products: if there are only these types of products in the shopping cart, checkout is automatically transformed to one-step procedure, because shipping information is not required.
