To complete a checkout, you need a lot of information from your shoppers, from their shipping addresses and billing information to their payment credentials. The checkout process thus is a lengthy one — especially for first-time customers.
As this is a lot of work, many eCommerce stores split it up into several pages. For instance, they'll ask for billing information only on the first page. Then they'll move on to several more pages before finally displaying the payment button. The problem with a multi-page WooCommerce checkout experience is that each stage (page!) can add to your checkout abandonment rate if it's not optimized for conversions. Cart abandonment incidents commonly occur during the checkout, when users leave while some page of a multi-page checkout is loading.
A WooCommerce one-page checkout process helps patch such leaks. It does all of this work — on a single page! A simplified and streamlined one-page checkout eliminates unnecessary page loads and clicks and accelerates the checkout, getting more users to complete it, that, too, faster. If you're looking to introduce a one-page checkout on your WooCommerce store and get more people to complete your checkout, we've got you covered. Today we're looking at eight of the best WooCommerce one-page checkout plugins that you can use on your store.
PeachPay to add a slick, conversion-optimized checkout window on your store for new customers, implement Amazon-like one-click checkout for returning users, and offer one-click access to the checkout from anywhere on your WooCommerce store
Direct Checkout for WooCommerce to redirect traffic to the cart page to the checkout page and facilitate the checkout on a single page
WooCommerce One Page Checkout to add a checkout form to any page or post within your store
YITH WooCommerce One-Click Checkout to enable a one-click checkout for repeat shoppers
WooCommerce Fast Cart to add a quick buy button to all your pages that pop open a side or popup cart and help users swiftly complete their checkout
WooCommerce One Page Shopping to add a quick buy button to your shop or product pages and have a checkout form appear each time a user clicks the buy button
One page checkout and layouts for WooCommerce to bring different styles of single-page checkout layouts to your store and let users checkout via a single page
Direct checkout, Add to cart redirect, Quick purchase button, Buy now button, Quick View button for WooCommerce to add a quick buy now button to your product page that users can click to directly land on the plugin's one-page checkout page and make an instant purchase
PeachPay is a free WooCommerce checkout plugin that optimizes your complete WooCommerce checkout process in three big ways:
If you're using WooCommerce's default checkout page, you probably already know how long it is. It comes with a lengthy checkout form with about twelve form fields, of which you can delete a few with the help of custom coding or with a WooCommerce form field customizer plugin.
But even if you edit your default WooCommerce form and remove a few fields, your WooCommerce checkout experience remains more or less the same, even if you cram everything into a single page. To truly customize your WooCommerce checkout experience for more conversions, you need to think beyond a one-page checkout.
And do you know what's better than cramming over a dozen checkout fields into a one-page checkout page on your WooCommerce store? Adding a slick checkout window. PeachPay lets you add just that to your online store. With PeachPay's checkout window, you can easily collect your first-time shoppers' billing, shipping, and payment information in a quick-loading checkout window — that too without overwhelming your users.
PeachPay's checkout window loads in a flash and is optimized for conversions. From using a simple two-column design for collecting contact and shipping information to using a neat order summary along with the shipping rates and progress indicators, PeachPay has paid attention to the little things that cause huge conversion losses to online stores. You don't need to know any PHP, CSS, or AJAX to set it up — PeachPay works right out of the box.

Notice how PeachPay shows your customers all the items they're checking out with - their order summary, including their shipping fees and any additional charges. The PeachPay WooCommerce checkout plugin also lets users change the quantity of the products they're buying. They can even apply coupons during the checkout.
Also, you can easily upsell or cross-sell items right within your checkout window.

Once users complete a purchase via PeachPay, it remembers their billing, shipping, and payment details. Each time such users return to your store to make a repeat purchase, PeachPay auto-fetches their information to offer them an Amazon-like one-click checkout experience. Here's PeachPay's optimized checkout window for a returning shopper:
With PeachPay, you can add an express checkout button to all your products:
This express checkout button works differently for your new and returning users:
If first-time shoppers click it, they will see PeachPay's quick checkout window to collect their details without making it look like a lot of work.
And if returning customers click it, they'll see PeachPay's one-click checkout window to complete the purchase process.
Essentially, this express button lets you bypass the multiple steps WooCommerce takes by default to get to the checkout. (Ready to start with PeachPay? Skip to the last section.)
Formerly known as WooCommerce Direct Checkout, Direct Checkout for WooCommerce from QuadLayers lets you optimize your WooCommerce checkout experience in a few ways.
First up, Direct Checkout for WooCommerce lets you take your users who click on the Add to cart button directly to your checkout page (and bypass your default WooCommerce cart page).
Next, with Direct Checkout for WooCommerce (the premium version), you can add a Purchase Now button to your product page. So your users see both a Purchase button and a Purchase Now button. Clicking the Purchase Now button takes users directly to the checkout page. So this plugin brings a one-step checkout to your WooCommerce store.
The premium version also doubles up as a WooCommerce checkout form field editor plugin. It lets you eliminate unnecessary fields and elements from your WooCommerce checkout form and page, like order notes, the coupon field, policy text, and terms and conditions.
And, of course, Direct Checkout for WooCommerce lets you create a one-page checkout that you can use to collect your users' billing details, shipping addresses, and payment credentials on the same page. Direct Checkout for WooCommerce also lets your users edit their cart items (add or remove products or change their quantities) on its one-page checkout
Download Direct Checkout for WooCommerce for free or get the fully-featured plugin for a one-time payment of $39 that unlocks six months of personalized support.
WooCommerce One Page Checkout is WooCommerce's very own one-page checkout plugin.
With WooCommerce One Page Checkout, you can add your checkout form to any page on your website — right from a simple eCommerce product page to a custom landing page for a campaign — and convert it into a checkout page. You can insert shortcodes in your posts, too, and add checkout forms to them as well. Users can simply fill in the WooCommerce One Page Checkout' checkout section and click its pay button to make a purchase right from wherever they are on your website. This plugin shows customers their order summary so they can view any items that are already present in their cart and also change their quantities or remove them.
WooCommerce One Page Checkout comes with four templates that you can use to let people checkout on your pages and posts. The screenshot above uses the plugin's Single Product page template that's ideal for WooCommerce product pages. However, if you're creating a landing page for a campaign and want to offer three pricing plans, you can go with the plugin's other templates.
You can also code a custom template.
WooCommerce One Page Checkout costs $79/year.
YITH WooCommerce One-Click Checkout lets you add an Amazon-like one-click checkout to your store. YITH WooCommerce One-Click Checkout remembers your users' billing, shipping, and payment details once they make a purchase on your store and then uses this information to enable a one-click checkout on your store for their future sessions.
In addition to offering a one-click checkout option on your product pages, YITH WooCommerce One-Click Checkout works on the shop page, too, so users don't even need to click through to a product page. They can purchase what they need from the shop page itself. However, unlike PeachPay, this plugin does not remember users’ information across different stores.
You can easily customize your One-click checkout button by changing its call-to-action copy and color. You get two options to display your one-click checkout option, including a button and a link.
You can also disable the one-click purchase option on specific categories or products.
As you can tell, this isn't a typical one-page checkout plugin, but it does let you optimize your store for more frictionless repeat purchases (the way Amazon does).
YITH WooCommere One-Click Checkout is available for $69.99/year.
WooCommerce Fast Cart is another WooCommerce checkout plugin that simplifies WooCommerce's default checkout in multiple ways.
With WooCommerce Fast Cart, a side cart pops up when users add an item to their cart. This side cart shows users their order summary and allows for adding coupons. From here, users can either choose to continue shopping or click the checkout button to proceed to the checkout. Clicking the checkout button pulls up the checkout form where users can fill in their billing, shipping, and payment information. You can also offer a one-click PayPal payment button.
In addition to supporting a side cart/checkout, WooCommerce Fast Cart supports a popup cart/checkout.
Just like YITH WooCommerce One-Click Checkout, WooCommerce Fast Cart, again, isn't technically a WooCommerce one-page checkout plugin. Still, it brings a slick checkout popup or side cart/checkout that can work better than most multi-page or typical one-page checkouts.
You get several customization options to match your side or popup cart/checkout with the rest of your website. Also, it's possible to promote your other products inside WooCommerce Fast Cart's side and popup cart and checkout.
WooCommerce Fast Cart sells for $79/year.
WooCommerce One Page Shopping is another WooCommerce one-page checkout plugin that lets your shoppers checkout via a single page.
With WooCommerce One Page, once a user clicks the add to cart button, a checkout form with all the checkout fields and the payment button gets added right on the page itself, and the page auto-scrolls to the form where users can fill their billing, shipping, and payment details. You can choose the categories or products on which you want to enable WooCommerce One Page Shopping's one-page checkout.
WooCommerce One Page Shopping works on the shop page too. So if a user clicks the add to cart button on the shop page, a checkout form gets added to the shop page itself.
WooCommerce One Page Shopping is available on CodeCanyon for $20 and offers six months of support.
One page checkout and Layouts for WooCommerce is yet another plugin that lets you offer your full checkout on a single page. This WooCommerce one-page checkout plugin brings several layouts to help you collect your users' billing, shipping, and payment details via a single page to facilitate a faster checkout.
One page checkout and Layouts for WooCommerce's free version comes with three layouts: 1) a three-column layout, 2) a two-column layout, and 3) a cart + checkout page. The plugin also gives you a host of customization options to style your checkout. Each layout lets your shoppers easily update their cart items by removing an item or increasing the quantity for one.
The premium version unlocks even more layouts, including an accordion layout, a multi-step layout, and an order table layout. The pro version also lets you hide order notes or design a fully custom checkout.
One page checkout and Layouts for WooCommerce is available for $19.
Direct checkout, Add to cart redirect, Quick purchase button, Buy now button, Quick View button for WooCommerce lets you bypass WooCommerce's default cart page and directly take your cart page traffic to your checkout page. Your users can edit their cart content (change the quantity for an item or remove one) directly from the checkout page and also enter their billing, shipping, and payment details on it. Of course, you've got the "place order" button too on the same checkout page.
You can also shorten your checkout form by removing the order comments and coupon fields. The pro version even lets you merge your billing and shipping form fields, mainly because they're the same for most customers.
With Direct checkout, Add to cart redirect, Quick purchase button, Buy now button, Quick View button for WooCommerce, you can also convert all your product pages into checkout pages by adding a Buy Now button. This buy button takes users to the plugin's one-page checkout, where they can quickly complete their purchase.
Direct checkout, Add to cart redirect, Quick purchase button, Buy now button, Quick View button for WooCommerce is available for $16/year.
If you compare all these WooCommerce one-page checkout plugins, you'll realize that each brings its unique functionality. However, to fully optimize your WooCommerce checkout, you might end up needing a bunch of these WooCommerce extensions. PeachPay, on the other hand, brings you everything you need to overhaul your current WooCommerce checkout page and process. Let's quickly go over how you can get started with the plugin.
To install this free WooCommerce checkout plugin on your store, visit peachpay.app and navigate to the “Get PeachPay” page. Enter your WooCommerce store's URL and click GET:
Once you click GET, PeachPay takes you to your WooCommerce store's login page. Enter your details and log in:
PeachPay automatically takes you to the plugin installation page from here; click the Install button:
Finally, activate your PeachPay plugin by clicking Activate:
Congrats! PeachPay is now live on your WooCommerce store. Click PeachPay on the left panel to access the plugin's settings:
The General tab settings let you disable your checkout Coupons and Order notes form fields on your checkout window, so your checkout feels like less work. You can also choose to pitch upsell/cross-sell offers on your checkout window via the Products settings.
Using the Payment Methods tab, you can have PeachPay accept payments via Stripe and PayPal. PeachPay offers out-of-the-box integration with both these payment gateways. Here's documentation on how you can connect your PayPal and Stripe accounts with PeachPay.
Button Preferences settings let you style your express checkout button. You can change your PeachPay's express checkout button's color, copy, and placement without writing any code. You can also style your express checkout buttons differently for each page type. So your product pages can use an express checkout button that looks different from the one on your cart or checkout page.
Finally, using the Field Editor settings, you can add more fields to your checkout form (which will show up in your checkout window).
Here's the plugin's complete documentation.
If you aren't ready to replace your existing WooCommerce checkout page with PeachPay's checkout window, just add PeachPay's express checkout button to your product, cart, and checkout pages as a supplementary option — that's a good starting point too.
If you're looking to improve your store's conversion rate, you need to do more than offer a quicker, simplified, and streamlined checkout that one-page checkout plugins allow.
