How to Create Custom Add to Cart Buttons in WooCommerce

WooCommerce: Disable Redirect to Cart

Adding custom add to cart buttons in WooCommerce can greatly enhance the user experience, allowing you to add specific products to the cart with ease. In this article, we will explore how to create custom HTML links/buttons that will add a given quantity of a single product to the cart and redirect to specific website pages. Whether you have simple products, variable products, or grouped products, we’ve got you covered!

Simple Products: Add to Cart URL

Adding simple products to the cart via a custom URL is incredibly easy. Firstly, find the product ID by hovering over the product title under WooCommerce > Products. Then, you can utilize the following links:

URL: Add One Simple Product to Cart

[https://yourdomain.com/?add-to-cart=25&quantity=1](https://yourdomain.com/?add-to-cart=25&quantity=1)

This link will add one product with ID=25 to the cart. Remember to replace “yourdomain.com” with your actual domain name.

URL: Add One Simple Product to Cart with Quantity = 3

[https://yourdomain.com/?add-to-cart=25&quantity=3](https://yourdomain.com/?add-to-cart=25&quantity=3)

Using this link will add one product with ID=25 and a quantity of 3 to the cart. Please note that you cannot add two different products to the cart with a URL.

URL: Add One Simple Product to Cart & Redirect to Cart Afterwards

[https://yourdomain.com/cart/?add-to-cart=25&quantity=1](https://yourdomain.com/cart/?add-to-cart=25&quantity=1)

By following this link, one product with ID=25 will be added to the cart, and the user will be redirected to the cart page. Ensure that you have ticked the “Enable AJAX add to cart buttons on archives” option in WooCommerce > Settings > Products > General for this to work.

URL: Add One Simple Product to Cart & Redirect to Checkout Afterwards

[https://yourdomain.com/checkout/?add-to-cart=25&quantity=1](https://yourdomain.com/checkout/?add-to-cart=25&quantity=1)

Similarly, this link adds one product with ID=25 to the cart and redirects the user to the checkout page. Remember to enable the AJAX add to cart buttons on archives and disable the “Redirect to the cart page after successful addition” option.

URL: Add One Simple Product to Cart & Redirect to Any Page Afterwards

[https://yourdomain.com/your_custom_page/?add-to-cart=25&quantity=1](https://yourdomain.com/your_custom_page/?add-to-cart=25&quantity=1)

With this link, you can add one product with ID=25 to the cart and redirect the user to any custom page. Again, ensure that you have the necessary settings enabled.

Variable Products: Add to Cart URL

Adding variable products to the cart via a custom URL has become much simpler. All you need is the variation ID, which can be found easily. Here’s how:

URL: Add One Variable Product to Cart

[https://yourdomain.com/?add-to-cart=88&quantity=1](https://yourdomain.com/?add-to-cart=88&quantity=1)

By following this link, you will add one variable product with the variation ID=88 to the cart. It’s as easy as that!

URL: Add One Variable Product to Cart (with Quantity = 3)

[https://yourdomain.com/?add-to-cart=88&quantity=3](https://yourdomain.com/?add-to-cart=88&quantity=3)

If you want to add three of the same variable product to the cart, simply adjust the quantity in the URL.

URL: Add One Variable Product to Cart & Redirect to Cart

[https://yourdomain.com/cart/?add-to-cart=88&quantity=1](https://yourdomain.com/cart/?add-to-cart=88&quantity=1)

This link adds one variable product with the variation ID=88 to the cart and redirects the user to the cart page.

URL: Add One Variable Product to Cart & Redirect to Checkout

[https://yourdomain.com/checkout/?add-to-cart=88&quantity=1](https://yourdomain.com/checkout/?add-to-cart=88&quantity=1)

By following this link, one variable product with the variation ID=88 will be added to the cart, and the user will be redirected to the checkout page.

URL: Add One Variable Product to Cart & Redirect to Any Page

[https://yourdomain.com/any-page-url/?add-to-cart=88&quantity=1](https://yourdomain.com/any-page-url/?add-to-cart=88&quantity=1)

Using this link, you can add one variable product with the variation ID=88 to the cart and redirect the user to any desired page.

Grouped Products: Add to Cart URL

Adding grouped products to the cart via a custom URL is also quite straightforward. A grouped product consists of two or more sub-products, each with their own custom quantity. Here are the custom links:

URL: Add a Grouped Product to Cart

[https://yourdomain.com/?add-to-cart=3111&quantity[1803]=5&quantity[1903]=2](https://yourdomain.com/?add-to-cart=3111&quantity[1803]=5&quantity[1903]=2)

In this example, we are adding a grouped product with the ID=3111 to the cart. Additionally, we are specifying that we want 5x of the product with ID=1803 and 2x of the product with ID=1903. It’s important to note that if you want to add “zero” for one of the sub-products, you still need to specify that in the URL.
