In this tutorial you will learn how to manage Shopping cart and Checkout Settings in VirtueMart 2.x
Login to your Joomla Administrator panel, go to Components >> Virtuemart. Select Configuration and click on Checkout tab.
Here we can edit Checkout Settings:
1.Enable Automatic Selected Shipment?
When Automatic Selected Shipment is enabled, if only one shipment method is available, then it is preselected.
If Automatic Selected Shipment is NOT selected, even when there is only one shipment method is available, a new page is loaded. It is usefull if the shipment method must validate shipment data entered by the user.
2.Enable Automatic Selected Payment?
When Automatic Selected Payment is enabled, if only one payment method is available, then it is preselected.
If Automatic Selected Payment is NOT selected, even when there is only one payment method is available, a new page is loaded. It is usefull if the payment method must validate payment data entered by the user.
3.Must agree to Terms of Service on EVERY ORDER?
Check if you want a shopper to agree to your terms of service on EVERY ORDER (before placing the order).

Store owners are required by law to inform their shoppers about return and order cancellation policies in most European countries. So this should be enabled in most cases.
