Support » Plugin: Easy Digital Downloads » Click button and go directly to checkout

  • Resolved CrystalLynn85


    I’m attempting to make the the download button send visitors directly to the checkout when it’s clicked once.

    Currently, after someone clicks the download button, they are told that the item has been added to the cart. They are then prompted to click again to go to the cart.

    Is it possible for visitors to click once and be taken directly to checkout?

    I attempted to use the direct=”true” code but it doesn’t change anything. Below is the short code I am using.

    [purchase_link id=”88″ direct=”true” text=”Download Now” style=”button” color=”red” price=”0″]

    Hey there,

    Adding direct=”true” will send the user straight to the payment gateway – but only if the payment gateway supports it. Otherwise it won’t do anything. You may not be using a payment gateway that supports the direct mode. For example, if you are using Paypal Standard, it would direct the user straight Paypal’s website so they can complete checkout – rather than showing them their cart first.

    I think what you are actually looking for is a setting built into Easy Digital Downloads that auto direct the customer to their cart page (checkout page) when they click.

    To do that, go to “Dashboard” > “Downloads” > “Settings” > “Misc” > “Redirect to Checkout” and make sure it is checked.
