Getting started with Commerce.js to build your product catalogue and cart can be fast and easy, while finishing it off with a custom checkout may take a little longer.

If you need to save some time you can use our hosted checkout option instead. This can also be a nice option to get your store up and running quickly while you finish building your integrated experience. Here's how to do that.

Redirecting to the hosted checkout

When you call the "retrieve cart" API, there is a field named hosted_checkout_url. For more information on this API and its response structure, see the "retrieve cart" API documentation.
