    Hi,

    I am trying to update the button short code in the Download Settings Box on a Download Product Page for https://ireadlabelsforyou.com

    We want the buttons to read Buy Now. And have them take people right to the purchase page – currently they are having to click twice, first on “add to cart” and then on “checkout” and it is confusing customers. So I want to change the shortcode to read:

    [purchase_link id=”10760″ text=”Buy Now” style=”button” color=”” direct=”true”]

    But when I click on the current shortcode in that box on the download product page – nothing happens. It will not allow me to delete it and paste in the new one.

    I’ve read through the documentation – but I am not finding instructions on where to make changes to the shortcodes in the Download Settings box.

    Where can I do this?

    Thank you 🙂

  • Hi Meagan,

    You can have your customers go right to the purchase / checkout page after adding an item by doing the following:
    In WordPress Admin Dashboard goto:
    Downloads
    -Settings
    –Misc Settings

    Then, check the box “Redirect to Checkout” (Immediately redirect to checkout after adding an item to the cart?)

    Enabling that setting will send your customers right to the checkout page after adding an item.

    For the shortcode you can check the box (on the actual download bottom right area in “Button Options”):
    Disable the automatic output of the purchase button

    Then paste your shortcode directly into the description / content area of the download item.
    [purchase_link id=”10760″ text=”Buy Now” style=”button” color=”” direct=”true”]

    Or:
    [purchase_link id=”10760″ text=”Buy Now” style=”button” color=””]

    Etc.

    If you copy and paste from this support forum make sure you replace the double quotes because it likes to change them to fancy curly quotes, and you want the regular strait quotation marks.
