Create Direct Buy Links for your Products
Want to add “Buy Now” buttons to your social media pages (or other external sources) and redirect users from an external source to your Online Store cart? With Direct Buy Links, you can do this with ease!
For each simple product on your store, you can find two types of links; a Buy Link and a Permalink. You can see the Buy Links when you go into a product and click on Actions towards the top right.
The Permalink simply takes you to a page with product information and description, whereas the Buy Link adds the product directly to the cart, and can redirect the user to the product page, cart page or checkout page.

You can redirect them to the cart, to the checkout or they can stay on the same page.
