Checkout and Order Processing

Checkout and Order Processing

This section contains information about the technical design of checkout and order processing.

Checkout process refers to the sequence of steps taken by the user to provide information required to complete the purchase of products. The user steps typically include supplying billing and shipping addresses, selecting delivery options, and providing payment information.

Order processing includes the synchronous processing of the order carried out by the CheckoutService, as well as subsequent asynchronous actions that update the order.
