Unlike other shopping cart plugins, WP eStore doesn’t require you to have a specific checkout page. The standard shopping cart is capable of letting your customers checkout from where it is being displayed (for example: the sidebar, header, footer, any post, any page etc.). This in turn help you minimize cart abandonment rate (the less hoops a customer has to jump through to checkout, the less the cart abandonment rate).
You can still configure a specific checkout page if you want to. It is simply a matter of creating a WordPress page called “Checkout” and placing a shopping cart shortcode in that page. eStore has an option that you can use to automatically redirect your customers to the checkout page after they add an item to the shopping cart. This can be handy if you want to offer some up-sell products on your Checkout page.
You can also display a compact cart (a compact version of the shopping cart) on your sidebar which will let the customers checkout via your “Checkout” page.
