Learn how to add a Terms and Conditions checkbox to your checkout process on your Magento store. Having a site-wide link in your footer to your Terms and Conditions is good, but when you offer products and or services, having a, “I agree to the Terms and Conditions”, checkbox can be a good idea.
Yesterday I updated one of my client’s Magento installations from 1.7 to 1.8.1 – I didn’t know I had issues until customers starting calling saying they couldn’t login.
