How to redirect Add to Cart button in opencart to the cart page directly

In this tutorial, we will show you how to redirect “Add to cart” button in Opencart version 1.4+, version 1.5+, version 2.0+ and version 3.0+ and take you directly to the shopping cart page.

For Opencart 1.4+ versions

For Opencart 1.4 versions it’s easy we can do it through the admin section
In Extensions->Modules under “Cart” you can disable ajax

For Opencart 1.5+ versions

But in Opencart 1.5+ there are no options to do those things so we have to edit in the codes.

Open the javascript file at catalog/view/javascript/common.js

Find the code below :

if (json['success']) {
    $('#notification').html('<div style="display: none;">' + json['success'] + '<img src="catalog/view/theme/default/image/close.png" alt="" /></div>');
    $('html, body').animate({ scrollTop: 0 }, 'slow');

Replace with

if (json['success']) {

For OpenCart and Opencart 3.0+ follow following steps:

Find following code at catalog\view\javascript\common.js

var cart = { 'add': function(product_id, quantity) {

Inside that find success method:

success: function(json) {    $('.alert, .text-danger').remove();

Just below it add following code:


Now open another file catalog\view\theme\ACTIVETHEME\template\product\product.tpl

Find following code:

<script type="text/javascript"><!-- $('#button-cart').on('click', function() {

Inside that find success method:

if (json['success']) {

Just below it add following code:


All is set now when someone add to cart then it directly redirect to cart page
