The Checkout is where you choose the address to have your order delivered, how you want your order delivered and how you want to pay. To use the Checkout, you can either log into your account or proceed as a Guest.
Creating an Account vs. Proceeding as a Guest
If you don’t want to create an account, you can proceed through the Checkout as a Guest. Some customers prefer to use the Guest checkout because it’s generally faster for your first order and it means you do not need to create and remember a password. If you proceed as a Guest, you can choose to create an account at the very end of the checkout process.
Creating an account has the advantage of saving your delivery address and credit card details (optional) so that you can reuse them on future orders. This makes shopping faster and easier. Account-holders can also track the delivery status of their order from My Account.
