  • Functionality is done! Checkout workflow (for guest and customer) was demonstrated on previous sync-up meetings. All new functionality and feature requests will be added in the next release.
  • Final changes `Checkout schema`. We had a few requests from PWA team, also from contributors.
  • We still have a possibility to change our scheme. But after release, we need to follow Backward Compatibility rules.


  • > 90% of automated test coverage of Checkout workflow
  • The list of security cases for Checkout workflow has been created and automated


  • No P0 bugs
  • 21 bugs were fixed or resolved
  • 13 bugs (P1/P2/P3) are `open` or `in progress`

Backlog for next release:

  • Current open PR's (which are not related to Checkout)
  • `My Account` coverage. Task decomposition is in progress.
  • Continue work on `Checkout` (different types of products, online payment methods)
  • Valeriy Nayda will ping the Slack channel when the final list will be created and approved.
