Checkout Expiration Timer

Overview

By default, a checkout session will last as long as the user remains active. However, if you need to restrict the amount of time that a user can spend within the Affirm checkout flow, you define the time at which the checkout will expire. A timer will be displayed at the top of the checkout session, counting down to the expiration time.
