Announcing MemberPress Single Page Checkout

Today I'm excited to announce that MemberPress now supports a single page checkout! Now MemberPress provides the option to unify the checkout experience from two steps to just one.

It's common knowledge that the more friction you have on your checkout process, the more likely your customers will drop off before completing the purchase (see #4 from our friends at OptinMonster).

Historically, MemberPress has always required a two-step checkout process for customers subscribing to memberships. Your members would first create an account and select method of payment. Then your members would fill out their credit card information. This checkout method worked well for most membership sites but created more steps for your members and put purchases at risk of being unsuccessful. Now the account setup and collection of payment can happen in one, smooth action!

This feature has been in the works for quite a while now. You may have noticed that we've been using a Single Page Checkout here on memberpress.com for several months now and it's been awesome!

If you already have a 2-step checkout in place, don't fear -- Single Page Checkout is optional so it won't be enabled by default. However, when you're ready, find the checkbox labeled "Enable Single Page Checkout" under MemberPress → Options → Account. Simple as that!

Once enabled your checkout page will automatically update to collect the user's account setup info and also their payment, right there on the same page. As always if you need help setting things up, take a look at our documentation or reach out to our fabulous Support team.

    Will this be added to the MemberPress Developer Edition? I just updated to the latest version of that plugin and don't see the option for enabling single page checkout. Thanks!

      Yes, it is available in all editions of MemberPress. Make sure you're on version 1.4.0.

    I looked under MemberPress > Options > Account and don't see an option for this. Also, preemptively, I looked to see if there was a plugin update in WordPress, but it is not showing me that there is one. When does it get released?

      It has already been released. Keep an eye out for your 1.4.0 update in the dashboard. If you don't see it, you can always download it from your account page here as well.

    Awesome! This is one of the things I had been hoping for as I do see quite a few people drop off between the two pages. Thanks guys.

    This is fantastic, but it would be even better if the checkout table that used to be in Step 2 shows once you've made the country selection.

    Good feature, using it was able to create a all in one post with content, using conditional shortcodes show/hide purchase or show content option on my site partial shortcodes. GJ
