Guest Checkout

In the Oro storefront, guest customers can place orders similarly to registered users. They are, however, limited to just one shopping list.

Unauthenticated customers can proceed to the checkout through:

  • Guest Quick Order Forms
  • Guest Shopping Lists

At the checkout, guest customers can:

  • Login if they have forgotten to do this before placing items in the shopping list.
  • Create an account.
