Woocommerce add to cart button redirect to checkout

Questions:

I created an ecommerce using the plugin woocommerce. I am selling only a subscription so the “/cart/” page is useless. I’m trying to get rid of it so that when my customer click on “Add to cart” button, he ends up on the checkout page.

Answers:

you can use a filter in functions.php:

add_filter ('add_to_cart_redirect', 'redirect_to_checkout');

function redirect_to_checkout() {
    global $woocommerce;
    $checkout_url = $woocommerce->cart->get_checkout_url();
    return $checkout_url;
}

it doesn’t seem to work with ajax, but it works from the single product pages, which I think is what you use

On the latest versions of WooCommerce (>= 2.1) the function can be simplified as:

function redirect_to_checkout() {
    return WC()->cart->get_checkout_url();
}

There is an option within WooCommerce settings that allows you to enable this functionality:

Option to redirect visitor to cart page

Simply login to your WP admin panel > WooCommerce > Catalog and select the option. I hope this helps!

I’ve found a simple solution that work like magic.

  1. As mentioned by @Ewout, check the box that says “Redirecto to cart page after succesful addtion”.
  2. Woocommerce > Settings > Checkout (Tab) – where you should select pages for cart and checkout, select the checkout page as the cart page (image attached).

That’s it. works for me.

@RemiCorson posted this brief but beneficial tutorial:

http://www.remicorson.com/woocommerce-skip-product-cart-pages/

He mentions the same filter as @Ewout above,

add_filter ('add_to_cart_redirect', 'redirect_to_checkout');

function redirect_to_checkout() {
    global $woocommerce;
    $checkout_url = $woocommerce->cart->get_checkout_url();
    return $checkout_url;

}

but one line of code stands out and is of super value for me for my current woocommerce project:

There is a direct link that a user can use to automatically bypass the product page.
http://your-site.com/?add-to-cart=37

’37’ will be replaced by your product ID.

This was useful for me to eliminate unnecessary steps and take users directly to checkout from the home page and other non-woocommerce pages/posts.

Filter add_to_cart_redirect is deprecated in WooCommerce 2.6. Use woocommerce_add_to_cart_redirect instead.

Add this to your functions.php :

add_filter ('woocommerce_add_to_cart_redirect', function() {
  return WC()->cart->get_checkout_url();
} );

On shop page, if you want use ajax and redirect toghether. The second method only when there are some condition, you can use this filter and leave on Woocommerce setting ajax enabled:

add_filter('woocommerce_loop_add_to_cart_link', array( $this, 'add_quantity_input' ), 4, 2); 

to remove on a class attribute ajax_add_to_cart and change the href value to checkout url page;

On my template case:

public function add_quantity_input($text = null, $product = null) {
    global $product, $woocommerce;

    if ( $text != null and $product != null  ) {
        if(ismycondition($product->id)) {
            $s = explode('class="', $text);
            $s[2]=str_replace('ajax_add_to_cart', '', $s[2]);
            $text = implode('class="', $s);

            $text = preg_replace('/<a(.*)href="([^"]*)"(.*)>/','<a$1href="'.$woocommerce->cart->get_checkout_url().'"$3>', $text);
        }
    }

    return $text;
}

I hope that this help.

None of the solutions actually worked out for me, the filter add_to_cart_redirect was triggering on every page,not only on the cart.I did some modification on the suggested answer.

add_filter ('add_to_cart_redirect', 'redirect_to_checkout');
  function redirect_to_checkout() {
  if(is_cart()){
    $checkout_url = WC()->cart->get_checkout_url();
  ?>
  <script>
  location = '<?=$checkout_url?>';
  </script>
  <?php 
  }
}
