Hi, I would like to deal with some issues that checkout has and which I think that it turns customers away frow our webshop.

I searched the forum but could not find any concrete information that could help me.

First of all I’d like to skip the 4 and 5 (payment and delivery method) steps of the checkout process because our shop has only one payment method which is cash on delivery by a single shipping company so the last two steps are pretty much redundant.
Also I’d like to change the AJAX into static…

Is there core code i must change? or just .phtml files?
Any tips?

Thanks anyone wink

I tried it and commented the blocks containing the unnecessary fileds but the checkout blocks after the shipping and billing info.
However I am still investigating on swithching from AJAX to static.

I found the OnePageCheckout controller but i don’t know how to modify it to skip the payment&shipping;methods.
Anyone familiar with that?

I also found that in the Onepage checkout block ar initialised the steps so by commenting like this on line 44

$stepCodes = array(’billing’, ‘shipping’, /* ‘shipping_method’, ‘payment’, */ ‘review’);

I can also skip those steps but the checkout process still gets halted this way just as by removing the xmls.
