Flodesk Checkout gives you the tools to monetize your content and accept payments online in three easy steps:
What if you want to skip the sales page and link directly to your checkout page from your website, email, or social media? Here’s the solution: our Checkout only template!
It’s a great solution if you already have a website or you’re promoting your offer in other formats. With this checkout only flow, you can:
Immediately drop your buyers into a transaction page to accept payments
Segment your customers based on purchase
Direct customers to a delivery page
Send a buyer confirmation email
Access order details within our analytics
Get notified when a sale goes through, a la the merchant order confirmation email
Get your offer up in moments and make instant sales with this simple template.
Where to find the Checkout only template?
In your Flodesk account, go to Checkouts > + New checkout.
Select the Checkout only template in the templates gallery and click on the View details link.
On the next screen, you can see how this simple template looks like. It includes the checkout page and the delivery page. Use the mobile and desktop preview icons to see how they render on various screen sizes.
When you’re ready to start, click on the Customize button.
Editing the Checkout only template
The checkout page of the template consists of the following sections:
Terms and conditions
Click anywhere in the background of your checkout page to show and hide some of these elements. Additionally, you can toggle on to show your company logo or allow customers to sign up for your email list during checkout.
Select any element to edit it and make it your own.
In our example, if you click on the Contact information block, the pop-up will automatically open to the Contact tab, similar to the below image.
Here, you can adjust the price, mark it as “On sale,” make it free and add your image. For example, you can upload the ebook cover as the image if you're selling an ebook.
Do you have an upsell? Perfect!
In this tab, you can edit the price, mark it as “On sale” or even give it away for free.
Hint: if you don't have an upsell yet, you can toggle off that block, as explained here.
This tab lets you collect your customers’ information, including their first and last names and email address.
Also, this is where you can define to which product segment customers who purchase your product (or service) should be added.
The best way to illustrate the value of your offer is to show how others found it. If you want to showcase a great testimonial someone left for you, this is the place to do it!
Who doesn't like a discount every now and then? Give your customers a great deal by adding one or multiple discount codes.
Once you build your checkout page, all is left to customize how customers will receive the product(s). You will set this up on the delivery page.
Editing the Delivery page
Click anywhere in the background of your Delivery page to show and hide blocks as needed.
You can toggle on or off the following blocks:
Click any block to start editing it and make it your own.
For a detailed step-by-step guide on how to customize each part of the delivery page, visit How to customize the delivery page in Flodesk Checkout.
When you're finished, click the Publish button in the top right corner, and you'll get the shareable link to your checkout page.
3 practical ways to use the Checkout only link
1. On your website
Use a sales page you've already created on your website, and link it to a checkout only page.
2. On social media
Promote your digital product in your social media posts and drive your followers to the checkout page directly.
3. In your email newsletters
Send a promotional email to your subscribers and let them buy your new offer by connecting your call-to-action button in the email to the checkout only page.
Let’s sum it up!
Start your next checkout flow with the so-called Checkout only template if you don't need a sales page. Customers clicking on the link will land directly on the checkout page to complete their purchase.
It's a great solution if you already have a website or promote your offer in other formats.
