First to say thank you for all your effort.
I prefer the 1st one.
a: I like the boxes for additiona information for me to insert.
I would very much like one for 3) Shipping Method and also for 6) Payment Information
b: I would like 6) Payment Information to come below 5) Coupon Code.
I often have orders with several products - sometimes as many as 20 or more, so box 4 could be a long one.
I think that would make me very happy
When we see it presented that way we have to ask why we would not want such a checkout - surely there must be many other users who would chip in a few $$$s to get this in place??!!??
Perhaps we agree with Viart that we will buy this provided that it does not appear as standard in the next upgrade - then those wanting to invest in such great improvements get a real benefit period?
