With online shopping moving quickly, convenience is becoming a must for customers. Overcomplicating your check out process can result in lost sales and unsatisfied customers.One would think that fewer steps would make it easier for the customer to check out, but that is not always the case.
Here we are coming up with Easy checkout for J2Store that makes the checkout process quiet easier.
Easy checkout is nothing but an one-page checkout that displays all elements of a standard checkout including basket contents, billing and shipping address, shipping options, and payment information on one page. Originally, one-page checkouts were put into practice in an effort to simplify the check out process with fewer clicks and fewer pages.
It will be easier to complete as less steps can appeal to time-conscious customers.

The existing customers can place the order by using the login form. You would see the login form by clicking on Login.
4. Checkout menu
The SEF is the most important one for all the online stores. Similar to the Normal checkout, the easy checkout also has the menu item type.
By using this menu type, you can have the SEF url for checkout page.
Go to menu manager and create the menu item with type Easy checkout > Checkout.

Even after installing, enabling and creating a menu for easy checkout, if it is not showing up on the storefront, then this might be a reason.
