Updated 16 March 2023


Odoo website guest checkout: Make every visitor count!!

Whenever a new user visits your website, it is possible that they purchased a product as a guest and left the website without any assurance of returning back in the future. Being a store owner, it’s important to retain your customers on your website. Odoo Website guest checkout does the job for you to capture the details of new visitors at the time of placing an order. It helps you to gain new users that in the future can result in potential customers.

The Odoo website guest checkout module basically restricts the guest checkout without login or sign up at the time of placing an order. On the checkout page, guest users will be asked to sign up or one step login to complete the purchase.

Fetching the details of a new customer can also help you to notify them about any offers and discounts going on your website. This will help you in increasing customer engagement and even your sales and profits. The module is totally customizable as you can disable too as per your wish. It provides you a user-friendly interface from where you can configure its settings accordingly.
