What are Skins? How do I use them?

In BuyNow 1 we used templates and these have been replaced by skins. To modify your skins, access Checkout Page > Page Design in the left side menu of the Merchant Portal.


We provide multiple desktop and mobile skins to suit your needs:

  • Dekstop Detailed – Single checkout page with full shopper information.
  • iFrame Desktop Detailed – Single checkout page designed to be embedded in your website. Select this skin if you would like your shoppers to feel like they haven’t left your website during checkout.
  • Desktop Slim – Single checkout page with minimum shopper information fields needed. Select this skin if you would like your shoppers to fill in less personal information on the checkout page.
  • Continue Shopping Desktop – A two-page checkout flow allowing your shoppers to add multiple items prior to checkout. You will be requested to enter the URL of the store listing your products.
  • Mobile Detailed – Mobile checkout with full shopper information.
  • Mobile Slim – Mobile checkout with minimum shopper information needed.



In order to use a skin, please select the skin type of your choosing and name it. Our system will then add the skin to your skin library and you will be able to customize it as you see fit.
