Must Agree to Terms and Conditions

By | January 31, 2012

There are a couple of Terms and Conditions addons floating about, but I decided that none of them were quite suitable for the needs of my latest client.

What the client wanted is three-fold;

1. Have a link in the checkout_confirmation page, which, when clicked pops up the Terms and Conditions for the buyer to read. This popup to also have a “cancel” button which kicks the user, and a “continue shopping” button which allows the user to remove the close the popup.

2. Have a tickbox in the checkout_confirmation, which, when clicked makes the “continue” button appear. In the popup, if the “continue shopping” button is pressed, this tickbox is automatically ticked.

3. Have the Terms and Conditions popup automatically as soon as the checkout_confirmation.php page is accessed.

So, now we know the needs, it is possible to make it happen. I used the jquery modal dialog box to show the info. This linked to the text to make it appear.

Link and Tickbox (no continue button):

When the Tickbox is ticked (continue button appears):

And if the Link is clicked up pops the information:

Remember also, that this information popup is also open by default each and every time the checkout_confirmation.php page is accessed – meaning the buyer must either choose to “continue” [in other words continue to checkout] or “cancel” [log off].

It’s kind of hard to explain, so here’s a video;

    I wish something like this was released as an addon. I have just had a nightmare of a customer, who had actually checked a t&c check box, but still complained. Customers hey, who would have them.

    Steve, anything I do for clients is clients. They want to release and support it, it’s fine with me.

    If you wanted me to redo this for you as an addon, I can, easily. Then you could release it and provide support etc.

    Get in touch.

    Hi Gary

    I’ve been looking for something like that for a while, and seeing as I couldn’t find anything suitable, I made do with this rather simplistic solution: I just have a text on checkout_confirmation.php that says “By placing this order you agree to abide by our Terms and Conditions of Use”

    I like your MATC, it looks neat. 🙂

    It is not available as a download anywhere. It is code made for a client that would need to be specifically recoded for use as a addon. If you are willing to sponsor that, get in touch by email.
