Guest Checkout in Experience Cloud

Nimble AMS enables association members to browse through the product catalog via the online store, view the details of the product, and purchase it without having to log in. The system automatically creates the necessary order and financial transactions once the payment is made.

View the product details as a guest user

When a guest user views the details of a product, in addition to the regular list price they will also see a Member price. This allows them to see the potential price difference between the two prices and get insight into the savings they will get by being a member. By surfacing and highlighting this important member benefit, associations have an effective tool to increase their membership revenue.

Guest user selects the quantity that they want to purchase, and selects any product variant information, if applicable. From here, they have the option to buy the product as a guest or they can add the product to the cart.

To add the product to a cart, they click on the “Log in to Add to Cart” button (shown in Figure 1). This will take them to the login screen and upon successful login, they will be sent back to the product details page. The product with the quantity and other details selected should be added to the cart. The user can click on the Shopping Cart icon to go to the Shopping Cart page or continue shopping and add more products to the cart.

Purchase a Product through Buy Now as a guest user

The guest users can buy the product that they are viewing through the Buy Now button (shown in Figure 1). It will take them straight to checkout where they have the option of logging in if they want to (shown in Figure 2).

  • To purchase a product simply click the Buy Now button. Once you do this, a Checkout Page will appear displaying the order summary.
