This is a serious problem! I had to change Opencart for Prestashop after almost 60% of my clients told me it was very difficult to get to the part where they completed their order. It takes 4 steps for a new user to complete an order.

Opencart does not have a "Buy Now" button. The user needs:

1. Add to cart
2. See the cart
3. Register or login
4. Method of payment

For a novice user this is very difficult!

To increase the sales rate the process should be simple and pleasant. Opencart needs to simplify the user experience.

I hope to see better changes in the next updates

Best regards

Well, better check the Extension Section, then, you will find some Extensions,
to make the checkout process more efficient. But OC could not survive, if they
would add everything by default for free, as most everybody understands.
So better don't complain, and if you don't like this way of doing things, you could
always try to convince your paying clients, to use something else.
