Add custom URL redirect to Woocommerce cart


For a client of mine we added bespoke Add to Cart buttons outside the loop. When a user added the item to their cart the parameter ‘add-to-cart’ still remained in the URL string.┬áSo when the updated their cart by adding or removing the product it would keep adding a single item back in.

The solution is to create a custom re-direct once a product has been added to the cart. This code could also be used to bypasss the cart and go straight to the checkout.


  1. Add the following to your theme's functions.php file

    function redirect_add_product_to_cart() { 
        // Custom URL
        return ; 
        // This links directly to your checkout page and bypasses the cart
        //return get_permalink( get_option('woocommerce_checkout_page_id') ); 
    add_filter( 'woocommerce_add_to_cart_redirect', 'redirect_add_product_to_cart' );
