Customer checkout process is the process that a customer must go through when checking out the items in the cart. This is what the user sees at the frontend.
When a customer wants to check out the items in the shopping cart, the following process must be completed :
The checkout process starts when the customer clicks Proceed to Checkout button in the Shopping Cart or the Shopping Cart Summary, or the Add to Cart button.
We Offer 2 step checkout process :

1. Customers will be default offered with “Guest checkout”, which eliminates customer checkout type options. If the Customer’s email address is already in the store database as an user, then it prompts to login to the account and still provides option to checkout as Guest as show in the below screen shot :
