For the Checkout Flex product, separate contracts must be concluded with the relevant acceptance partners. As a result, you will need to cancel the Checkout All-in-One product and re-register for Checkout Flex.

      Please note that your contract for the payment methods that come with Checkout All-in-One is not transferred to the new product. To use Checkout Flex, you will need to conclude additional contracts with the acceptance partners once you have registered.

      If you would like to use the Checkout Flex product in the future, please carry out the following steps:

      1. Log into The link will open in a new window checkout back office
      2. Select the plus sign (desktop: bottom left of the screen; mobile: in the menu)
      3. Select “Account”
      4. Enter the required name (e.g. company name)
      5. Select “Save account”
      6. Run the set-up wizard and open the Checkout Flex product

      You can then cancel the Checkout All-in-One product (see question “How can I cancel Checkout All-in-One and Checkout Flex?”).
