Disabling cache on the checkout page is crucial for enhancing the performance and loading speed of a website. However, in certain cases, you may need to disable caching for specific pages on your WordPress site.

For instance, you may encounter issues such as an empty cart during the checkout process or a “Please Wait” message when accessing the booking tab. These issues may arise due to plugin or theme conflicts, cache problems, and other factors.

To address such cache-related issues on the checkout page, you can follow the steps below.

Step 1: Check for conflicts

If you are experiencing a cache issue on the checkout page, it could be due to third-party plugins or themes. To identify any conflicts, we suggest using the Health Check & Troubleshooting plugin for the conflict check.

This plugin enables you to perform a conflict check while still allowing regular visitors to access your site without any issues.

Step 2: Ignore cache for specific page

To ensure that your website displays the latest version, you may need to clear the cache if you are using a caching plugin. Most caching plugins offer a convenient option to purge or clear all cached content with just one click.

It is also important to disable caching specifically for the WP Travel Checkout page.

Enabling caching for the checkout page can occasionally result in the appearance of a “Please Wait” message or an empty cart issue.

To avoid this issue, consult the documentation or settings of your caching plugin to exclude the checkout page from being cached.
