Terms and Conditions

When Terms and Conditions are enabled, customers must select a checkbox to verify that they
agree to the terms and conditions of the sale. The Terms and Conditions message and checkbox
appear during Order Review between the Totals section and the Place Order button. The
transaction cannot be finalized until the customer selects the checkbox to agree to the terms
and conditions of the sale.
