WooCommerce was created mainly for online shopping websites, but a lot of people use it for other types of products as well.

So some of you might have one or two products/services that you offer, and you just want a simple pricing table that will send the customer straight to the WooCommerce cart once he presses the “Buy” button, without having to go to the products page first.

Also, the less actions a buyer performs before purchasing a product or service, the better! You can lose customers if you put them to click 10 times before purchasing something.

Note that, in this article, I’m talking about pricing tables, not the grid of products from the WooCommerce’s shop page:

Some of you may wonder if you can send customers straight to the cart part after they press the “Add to cart” button found on the WooCommerce products. Yes, you can! All you need to do is to:

  • Go to WooCommerce -> Settings -> Products tab -> Display -> check “Redirect to the cart page after successful addition”:

WooCommerce redirect to cart option

Now let’s get to our main topic.

Redirect clients to cart from the pricing table button

If your theme doesn’t come with a built-in pricing table feature, you’ll have to use a plugin, of course. Here’s a list of some of the best pricing tables, both free and premium.

Now, the first thing you need to do is to find out your product(s) ID. In order to do that, go to your WooCommerce products and just hover your mouse cursor over the product whose ID you want to find out:

WooCommerce product ID

If for some reason it doesn’t display, try one of these methods.

Now that you know your product(s) ID, you have to insert the URL that will redirect buyers straight to the WooCommerce cart. The URL will contain your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), followed by ?add-to-cart= and your product’s ID after “=”.

So, let’s say your product ID is 207. The URL that you’ll have to insert into one of the pricing table buttons is http://example.com/?add-to-cart=207

Easy pricing tables plugin

Of course, instead of “example.com”, you’ll have to add your own domain name.

Update: Tony said in the comments that for him it just refreshes the page, it doesn’t add the product in the cart.

In most cases, this happens because “Enable AJAX add to cart buttons on archives” isn’t checked in WooCommerce -> Products -> Add to cart behavior, as you can see in the above image. So make sure you check that too.

That’s it! Now when the client will pres the “Buy” button, or whatever you want to call it, he will be redirected straight to the cart page!

    I spent my whole day today finding the way to add correct link to my pricing table. Google – YouTube – Blogs – and what not

    No one mentioned about ‘Redirect to the cart page after successful addition’ option.

    I am glad that my Google Search brought to me here. Thanks so much for sharing what you knew.

    Thanks so much for the info.. Helpful indeed. But got one question though. What if I need to collect information from client? Like for example, these options. Input Domain URL, Service Needed.. I’d be great if I get a reply. Thanks

      Hello! Additional information is collected via checkout process, after the cart part, through shipping details or billing details, and whatever additional information you want to ask for there.

    Hey i have followed this method but the quantity of product added to the cart is increased from 1 to 2 by default.

      Hello! It’s got nothing to do with the redirection itself. You either have a default setting that adds 2 products by default, instead of 1, or you already had one product in the cart. If you have one product, then click add to cart again, it doubles the quantity.

    Thanks for this. I have a product with the limitation of only one for each purchase. The problem is that if the costumer allready clicked the buy button in the sell letter, and then do not follow the buying process, when he come back to the sell letter and hit the buttom again, he is send to the home page!

      Hello! This could be caused by your 1 product per purchase limitation. This will also happen if the buyer would press the “Add to Cart” button directly from the product page, since it uses the same link. If they already have the product in the cart, they should access the cart directly, if they want to continue the purchase. Adding the same product in the cart, especially when you have the 1 product limitation, could trigger an error or send them somewhere else.

    Hi themeskills.

    THis works when i am loggin into wordpress, but when viewing the website in incognito mode/ or logged out of wordpress when i click the “buy now button” with the new link as directed in this article, then the page just refreshes. do you know why?

      Hello! The only thing that I can think of, without further investigation, is that you don’t have “Enable AJAX add to cart buttons on archives” checked as well. Make sure to clear your site and browser caches as well, or check it in incognito again.

      If you had it checked already, then do you happen to have any features enabled which only allow logged in users to purchase products?
