In my experience it really depends on the product, the price, and
the audience. One thing that I do know is cutting the number of clicks in
every case I have experienced increases the conversation rate. Why do you
have Personal Details and Address Details pages?
Use a method like GOMS to look at how you can reduce the clicks. Check what
errors people are getting.
This research giving conversation rates for large retailers from coremetrics
may help you.
