Linking to the Shopping Cart and Client Area

WHMCS allows you to link directly to the shopping cart, to specific product groups, or to specific products using several methods.

You can link directly to a specific product group instead of the default product group.

To do this:

  1. Go to Configuration > System Settings > Products/Services (Setup > Products/Services > Products/Services prior to WHMCS 8.0).
  2. Click the Edit icon next to the product group that you want to link to.
  3. Copy the URL:
    • In WHMCS 7.10 and earlier, copy the Direct Cart Link URL.
    • In WHMCS 8.0 and later, click Copy next to the displayed URL value.

You can use several different links to go directly to individual products.

To do this:

1. Go to Configuration > System Settings > Products/Services (Setup > Products/Services > Products/Services prior to WHMCS 8.0).

2. Click the Edit icon next to the product that you want to link to.

3. Select the Links tab.

In the Links tab, you will see several different URLs:

  • Direct Shopping Cart Link adds the product to the shopping cart and directs the visitor directly to the configuration page.
  • Direct Shopping Cart Link Specifying Template adds the product to the shopping cart and the visitor goes directly to the configuration page using a specified template.
  • Direct Shopping Cart Link Including Domain adds the product to the shopping cart and the visitor goes directly to the domain selection page.
  • Product Group Cart Link directs the visitor to the product group page.
  • Product URLs directs the visitor to the Direct Shopping Cart Link and tracks the number of visits for each product URL.
