Pseudo Pages#

While navigating the realm of Miva Merchant pages, it’s essential to acquaint oneself with the concept of Pseudo Pages. Despite their virtual nature, Pseudo Pages wield significant influence, orchestrating page redirections based on predefined conditions. Among the handful of Pseudo Pages within Miva Merchant, one stands out as particularly noteworthy: OINF.

OINF: The Checkout Pseudo Page#

OINF serves as the invisible conductor orchestrating the checkout process within Miva Merchant. Though absent from the Admin interface, OINF seamlessly guides users through the initial steps of checkout, directing them to either the login page (ORDL) or the first step of checkout (OCST) based on their login status. This behind-the-scenes logic ensures a smooth transition from browsing to checkout, enhancing the user experience.

Configuring OINF#

In the Miva Merchant Admin interface, administrators can explore the OINF configuration settings under User Interface Settings. Here, the Display Customer Login Before Checkout checkbox offers granular control over the checkout flow. By toggling this option, administrators can choose whether to prompt users for login credentials before proceeding to checkout, streamlining the checkout process based on their preferences.

Leveraging Pseudo Pages#

Understanding the functionality of Pseudo Pages, including OINF, empowers administrators to navigate the checkout process effectively and optimize the user experience. While OINF stands as the most frequently utilized Pseudo Page, awareness of other pseudo pages, such as ACNT, AFAE, and OUSL, proves beneficial for comprehensive store management.


In conclusion, Pseudo Pages represent a crucial component of Miva Merchant’s architecture, facilitating seamless page redirections and enhancing the checkout process. By grasping the intricacies of Pseudo Pages, administrators can streamline operations, optimize user experiences, and unlock the full potential of their Miva Merchant storefronts.
