I am working on the checkout flow(system) for tablet devices which has "three" steps:

  1. A list with existing orders (which were previously saved from another flow). The User should be able to select multiple orders from the list to proceed to the next step.

  2. Next step is Order Details. Here we can see the products(items) of each selected order.

  3. Pay

My question is about the 2nd step:

Can we show a summary for each order separately? Since it is important for us that at the step with Payment(3rd step), we can pay a different amount for each of them and choose different types of payment in terms of best practices and UI patterns.


  • There are no rules. You can do whatever you want to do. If you want multiple summaries then have multiple summaries. As long as it's clear to the user what is going on then no problem.

The best way is to take in mind what is most important for your user.

If it's important to him to know before payment step that you offer these options - you should definitely show a summary for each order separately. But if only total amount does matter for user at Order Datails step you may just warn him that he will be able to select payment method for each order separately.

In other words you need to know where is user's decision point in your process to provide all needed information in time.
