The WooCommerce Buy Now button simplifies your checkout process. It allows your customers to skip the cart step and go straight to the checkout page — or any other destination you choose — with a single click.
You can still direct users to their cart, send them to checkout, or opt for another external link. The external link feature is useful when you want customers to go to relevant product pages on Amazon, eBay, or any other marketplace where they can buy your products.
You can display the Buy Now button for all products or only for specific ones, as well as customize button text, redirect destination, and position. Product-specific settings enable you to set up separate links for each Buy Now button.

Uses of Buy Now Button:
Buy Button for External Destinations:
Some merchants sell products on third-party marketplaces and only showcase their catalog on their own website. The WooCommerce Buy Now plugin enables these merchants to customize the text and destination link for each Buy Now button and on each product page. Store owners can replace the Add to Cart button with the new Buy Now button.
Fast Checkout Experience:
The WooCommerce Buy Now plugin speeds up your checkout process — and may improve your conversion rates along the way. Shoppers can now skip the cart and head directly to the checkout page once they click the “Quick Buy” button.
Quick Buy Shortcode:
Add the Buy Now button anywhere on your website with a shortcode. Help shoppers make faster decisions by inserting buttons strategically throughout the store-browsing experience.
Product-Specific Settings for Buy Now Buttons
The product-level settings empower merchants to customize the Buy Now button for each product. This is a handy when you want to redirect users to third-party marketplaces with buttons that specify “Buy from Amazon,” “Buy from eBay,” or any other destination. Merchants can change the button label and ensure that each product sends visitors to the right product page on external marketplaces. In short, you can:
- Tweak the Buy Now button text.
- Choose where to direct shoppers (their cart, the checkout page, or any custom link).
- Replace the Add to Cart button with the new Buy ow button.
