Linking to the Shopping Cart and Client Area

Adding links from your website to the WHMCS system is probably one of the first things you'll want to do. This guide explains how to do that, and the subsequent pages in this section cover the more complex things which can be done with links in WHMCS.

To link customers directly to the shopping cart page,  the filename is cart.php.

For example if your WHMCS installation is located at http://www.yourwebsite.com/whmcs then the URL would be:

http://www.yourwebsite.com/whmcs/cart.php

This will take customers to the default product group.

A guide to changing the default product group is located at Changing the Default Product Group

It is possible to link directly to a specific product group, instead of showing the default product group.

Navigate to Setup > Products/Services > Products/Services

Click the Edit icon next to the product group to which you wish to link directly:

Copy the contents of the Direct Cart Link field:

When this link is visited, customers will see the products within this particular product group.

To link customers directly to the client area to login and manage their account,  the filename is clientarea.php.

For example if your WHMCS installation is located at http://www.yourwebsite.com/whmcs then the URL would be:

http://www.yourwebsite.com/whmcs/clientarea.php

This will take client sto their client area homepage. If they are not already logged in, it will prompt them to login first.
