How to skip WooCommerce cart page?

As user experience creators, in some cases, we need WooCommerce to bypass the cart pages and go straight to the checkout page. This greatly shortens the user experience time and allows users to immediately go to the payment page.

The process of skipping cart pages and going straight to the checkout page in WooCommerce start with the following step:

Go To WooCommerce > Settings > Products > Display

On this screen, uncheck the two options in the Add to cart behavior section.

The next step of the process is to add a code snippet to the functions.php (located in the theme folder).

add_filter('add_to_cart_redirect', 'redirect_add_to_cart'); function redirect_add_to_cart() { global $woocommerce; $redirect_url_checkout = $woocommerce->cart->get_checkout_url(); return $redirect_url_checkout; }

This code snippet adds a filter that redirects straight to the checkout pages. Once the code has been added, the click action would redirect to the checkout page.

In case if you are looking to rename the label of the button in the WooCommerce product from “Add to Cart” to “Go to Checkout”. For this, add the following snippet of code to the functions.php:

add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_single_add_to_cart_text', 'btntext_cart' ); add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_add_to_cart_text', 'btntext_cart' ); function btntext_cart() { return __( 'Go To Checkout', 'woocommerce' ); }
