Podia is always looking to improve our processes and we are launching a new and revamped checkout for your products.
This will become available in a couple of months for all Podia creators but, for now, you can enable and test it on your own account 😊
Note: for now, the new checkout is only available for free products and free community plans. Paid products and subscriptions will be supported in the future.

Enabling the new Podia checkout
To enable the new Podia checkout for your account, simply follow these steps.
Step 1: Access your Payments page, under Site Settings, and click on "Use new checkout experience" to enable to new Podia checkout for your new account.
Note: this will only enable the new checkout for free products and free community plans at the moment. Paid products and subscriptions will be supported in the future.
And that's it! Your new Podia checkout is now available but... What to expect? ✨
What to expect?
Instead of using a pop-up modal to prompt users to checkout, we are taking the new checkout experience to a dedicated single page.
This will help us add more features to it in the future, and will also make the whole experience for your users more solid and efficient.
Once users click on any buy buttons you have on your pages, the new Podia checkout will be triggered.
First, they'll need to create an account or log in to be able to proceed with the registration. This will ensure products are always assigned to the account they want to use.
If customers don't have an account with you yet, they will be asked to create a new one. All of this without leaving the payment page ✨
Then, once they are logged in, they just need to confirm their enrollment ✨
And that's it! They should have access to the product now. Simple, easy, fast and effective 🚀
