Introducing Managed Checkout

Over the next few months, Neto will be rolling out our new Managed Checkout and shipping some new features to make it better for developers like you.

What is the ‘Managed Checkout’ Add-on?

Managed Checkout is Neto’s new default checkout which provides access to up-to-date payment methods such as:

  • eWay Rapid 3.1
  • Braintree
  • Stripe
  • Managed Checkout is designed with responsiveness in mind, helping you capture more sales, allowing you to focus on running your business and less time chasing abandoned carts.

Note that the managed checkout is only default for _new_trials—we have not turned it on automatically on any of your websites.

What does this mean for developers using Neto as a platform?

The code for our new checkout is now stored within the software, rather than within your websites theme. This means that if a website you are working on was created after the initial release of managed checkout, changing your checkout templates will not have an affect on your checkout.

This also means that if you have a website which does not have a customised checkout, but was built before we released managed checkout, you should turn on our new checkout as soon as it is available to you.

Is managed checkout customisable?

Currently, you cannot customise managed checkout. We do, however, plan on shipping some modifications soon which will allow you to have custom checkout themes. This will allow you to customise the templates for your checkout.

We also plan on enabling merchants and their service providers to style their checkouts and manage any custom fields they may require, from within their control panel without the need to customise their checkout templates.

Finally, we will also be delivering alternative checkout layouts soon, including multi-column layouts, to reduce the need to customise your checkout templates as much as possible.

When to expect these changes

Below we have documented which checkout-related features we hope to ship in our upcoming releases below, alongside a timeline of when we hope to deliver each release to you and your clients.
