How to instantly add WooCommerce product to cart and check out

Website

WooCommerce is a great ecommerce solution for WordPress websites, but the Woo workflow can feel too long for simple, or subscription based products. So, lets configure #woocommerce to bypass the CART Page and jump straight to the checkout when a customer adds a product.

This used to need a little bit of PHP functionality to do the magic, but I recently accidentally discovered a smooth solution that just needs a little set-up in the base Woocommerce settings. :smileyface

and make sure “Redirect to the cart page after successful addition” is selected

WOOCOMMERCE | SETTINGS | ADVANCED

Now, update the Cart page to point to Checkout page

Now any time a user clicks the BUY BUTTON it will take them direct to the checkout payment screen to enter their credit card details. :anothersmileyface

Now, when we click BUY NOW it looks a little like a rhesus monkey wearing a powdered wig:

You are most welcome! 🙂
