WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to redirect to the checkout page directly upon clicking the "add to cart" button. Or a Direct Buy Now Feature.

How can this be done?

My friend Ewout just answered this question a couple months ago on stackoverflow. Add the following to your theme's functions.php file:

add_filter ('add_to_cart_redirect', 'redirect_to_checkout');

function redirect_to_checkout() {
    global $woocommerce;
    $checkout_url = $woocommerce->cart->get_checkout_url();
    return $checkout_url;
