Integration details

Either the KCO is always prefilled for logged in users (in which case the merchant has to adjust their terms and conditions accordingly and bear the legal risk), or the following information and choices are presented to the user. Partner systems should be configurable, while merchants have to make this decision during the integration phase.


How information is presented depends on if the user is logged in or if login is done on the checkout page.

1: Customer is logged in

A button or checkbox is displayed directly above the KCO with the title Meine Adressdaten vorausfüllen .

Adjacent is a note: Es gelten die Nutzungsbedingungen zur Datenübertragung .

This leads to a page or overlay with the information text.

The KCO is prefilled only if the user clicks on the button or checkbox.

2: Customer logs in on the checkout page

The login fields on the checkout page should have an adjacent note saying “Es gelten die Nutzungsbedingungen zur Datenübertragung”

This leads to a page or overlay with the information text.

If the user proceeds with the login, the KCO is prefilled.
