I want to link a button to my checkout

Recommended Posts

Instead of a product block, I want a regular ol' button to link my customer to a checkout page. My store sells one product. I want to be able to use regular ol' buttons to get people from my home page or store page into the checkout (with that one product already in the cart). Please advise.

Use the Product Block to create the button, but then enable Express Checkout in the checkout settings. When the user clicks the Add to Cart button (you can change the caption to ‘Buy Now’ or similar) they will go straight to checkout

Hi Paul - thank you! So When I do this and choose a product block that includes a button, that button only lets me link to the two pages on my site, and NOT the checkout. I want the button to go to the checkout. I have Express Checkout enabled and I only have one product. I want the button to simply take them to the checkout. Any way to do this? Am I uploading the wrong button?

I am not sure I understand because your screenshot is of the link editor not the product block editor.

If you have already added a product block to a page clicking the button in this product block could send the customer straight to the checkout to purchase the product, but only if express checkout is enabled. Let me know if any of this isn’t clear.

Thanks Paul - When I add a product block, as far as I can tell the button link isn't linked to anything. So I have to open the link editor to manage where it goes. I found a workaround by copying the checkout page URL and plugging it into the button link (web address option). So I have it working now, but it seems there should still be an "automatic" way of connecting them.

I think we're on different pages. Please see this video that shows how to add a Product Block, link it to your product and then use it.

If it doesn't help, I recommend you contact Squarespace Customer Care as they should be able to help.
