Hi Tia

This is a standard checkout process for any on-line shopping. Though there 
are various process you can find out while surfing on ecommerce websites 
but the one i have listed below as per my opinion works best without too 
much for user to ask for which is also faster as i have experienced with 
my clients for their customers.

---- Step 1 On-line Store ----
View Cart

---- Step 2 Registration ----
New Registration
Customer Name
*Choose Username
*Login Password with Confirmation
*Email Address

---- Step 3 Billing & Delivery Address ----
Billing and Delivery Address
Zip/Postal Code
Email (pre-populated per registration entry)

(Its a good practice to ask if the Delivery Address is similar to Billing 
and act accordingly.)

---- Step 4 - Check out ----
View Details of Cart with Shipping Details and Total Amount that will be 

Payment & Check out 

Hope this help.

Best Regards,
Sandeep Rathod

Registration forms

I'd be interested to hear of experience and research in the design of
registration forms - and in particular, registration during the
checkout process. Many companies do this.

I'm aware of the principles of good form design in general, and have
my own views and experience, but some of the information I'm after are
such questions as

- are there any metrics available as to the take-up of optional
registration during checkout

- is there a variance by industry

- what are the main factors that will influence a customer's decision
as to whether or not to register, or continue without registering, or
abandon the purchase

- how different is it to infroduce a registration process where there
wasn't one previously, from building it in from scratch

- has anyone run studies where the outputs of usability research have
been compared with post-implementation metrics e.g. the customer n
testing might say they don'tlike a feature, but it's been put live
anyway, and it's made no difference in hact to behaviour (but might
annoy people)

Opinion is valid also, but please make it clear if this is personal
opinion, or based on research.

Can anyone point me in the direction of online resources or books
specifically on the subject of registration form design. I would also
be interested to know if there is information available that we could
