How to Enable Magento 2 Instant Purchase

Regarding Magento eCommerce, many factors exist in building a prosperous website. And having a flawless user experience is the first one to take into account. 

As technological inventions become more innovative, people’s standard in experiencing them has also been raised. And their preference for a faster and smoother experience on websites is appealing evidence. To do things ASAP and prevent your customers from losing interest, speeding up the shopping process with an instant purchase function is a good idea. 

Since the release of Magento 2.2.2, instant purchase has become an official feature developed by Magento experts in the constant effort to upgrade the platform’s UX. When this function is enabled, registered users only need a few seconds to finish their buying process. Just by 2 clicks, even before they realize that they’ve purchased an item. 

How It Works

On the demand of rushing the checkout process up, the instant purchase feature helps collect saved data of customers registering an account on your website. Information retrieved are shipping address, payment method, billing address, or further details. 

When enabled, the storefront will display the Instant Purchase button right below Add to Cart button on every product page.

  • The stored payment method vault is enabled

Notes: To secure provided credit card information, customers can choose one from these payment options:
