New Checkout Experience Guide

The new checkout experience is an early access option available in the Stripe WooCommerce Extension. It will soon become standard, but until then, merchants can enable it and offer a different way of displaying payment method options to their customers.

This guide will let you know how to enable it and what sorts of changes the new checkout experience brings.

How is the new checkout experience different?

The new checkout experience primarily concerns how payment options are displayed to customers. It offers a modernized checkout experience and displays additional payment methods.

NOTE: If you would like additional payment methods to be available for customers while the new checkout experience is disabled, you must use the shortcode checkout as these payment methods are not compatible with the checkout block.
