It’s not always a good idea to always redirect customers to cart or checkout page after adding to cart.

At times, you may require to redirect your customers to a custom page after adding an item to the cart in WooCoomerce.

This article is going to provide a comprehensive guide on how to redirect your customers to a custom page after adding to the cart in WooCoommerce.

In the previous tutorial, we learned how to create a custom add to cart link/button in WooCommerce, you may need to check it to get along with this article, but if all you need is just to redirect customers after adding to the cart, you don’t need previous tutorial’s article.

If you created a custom link to add to the cart as demonstrated in this article, I will show you a simple way to redirect your customers to a custom page after adding to the cart in WooCoommerce.

Another thing to consider before proceeding with this article is a child theme. One of the methods that we’re going to use will involve editing the child theme’s functions.php. I have created a comprehensive article on how to create a child theme without coding.

Please do not edit the main theme fucntions.php, doing so will get your code deleted upon the theme update, always create a child theme to write custom code.

How to Redirect Users to a Custom Page after Adding to Cart in WooCommerce (functions.php)

 

This method will work perfectly well weather you created a custom link to add to cart or you just need to redirect users after adding to cart.

To redirect users to the cart page after adding to cart, please add the following code to your child theme’s functions.php file.

<?php 
function my_custom_add_to_cart_redirect( $url ) {

  $url = "https://example.com/cart"; 

  return $url;

}
add_filter( 'woocommerce_add_to_cart_redirect', 'my_custom_add_to_cart_redirect' );

You can replace the $url variable with the URL of the page you would want to redirect your customers to after adding to the cart.

This WooCoomerce filter is the one that does the magic “add_filter( 'woocommerce_add_to_cart_redirect', 'my_custom_add_to_cart_redirect' )
