Compatibility with themes & plugins

  • Dintero Checkout uses its own template file for displaying the checkout page and should work with most themes. However, the plugin is only tested with the Storefront theme and we do not guarantee that it will work with other themes. Common situations when errors occur are:
    – Themes/plugins with customized template files for WooCommerce checkout page.
    – Themes/plugins that modifies the checkout into a multi step checkout.

Krokedil and Dintero do not offer help with adapting your theme or plugin within regular support.
