Hyperlinked store policy checkbox at checkout

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

To ensure I abide by UK GDPR laws, I need a compulsory checkbox at checkout with hyperlinked terms of service and privacy policy. The options are either a pop out box which links to the policies, but these is no checkbox option. OR I can add a custom checkout option but I can't hyperlink and can't use HMTL to hyperlink either.

 

Is there custom code I could use to do this? I've attached an image of the exact type of compulsory checkbox I require - funnily enough it was included when I signed up to the Squarespace forum so is a good example. Squarespace use it themselves but can't provide it as standard!

 

Any help would be greatly apreciated

It is not possible to change this. The Squarespace checkout page is locked to prevent custom code from being used (to protect the payments process) so you can only use the built in features that are available. As you mentioned:

  • In Commerce > CheckoutCheckout Page: Store Policies you can add and format Terms of Service and Privacy Policy documents that open in pop-up windows.
  • You can create a Custom Checkout Form that includes checkboxes, but hyperlinks cannot be added to this form.

Update Feb 2023: Squarespace have renamed some of the options. You'll now find this in Commerce > Cart & checkout > Store policies.
