This feature requires StoreConnect version 11.2.0 or above. Here is how to check your version

Direct to Cart Link

The Direct to Cart link is a customisable URL which can be used on any page offering direct-to-cart, or direct-to-checkout product purchases. For Bundle Products the user will always land on the product page where they can configure their bundle and then add to cart.

For example, you can write an article and add Direct to Cart URLs within the text to add any product to their cart, or send them directly to the checkout.

Or, you could add a donation link into an email, which adds the givers’ details and donation amount directly into the checkout (provided those details were known, of course).

URL syntax:
[store domain]{/path}/cart/[product string]?[other-parameters]


See It In Action


In the below example we are sending a customer directly to the checkout to purchase a product. Where, RSK-MC-22 is the product code and 1is the quantity to purchase, the product string would be RSK-MC-22:1


You can add-to-cart using the parameter type=add without taking the customer to the checkout. This allows them to then continue shopping before going to the checkout.

Preserve Current Cart

By default, the direct to cart feature clears the cart and adds only the products included in the link. To preserve the existing cart and add to it, add this perameter to your link: preserve=true

Variable Pricing

With Variable Pricing enabled in the product’s Price Book you can customise the sell price of the product. Where, 35000 is the sell price of $350.00 and 4500 would be the sell price of $45.00.

Using a Promotion Code

Embedding a Promotion Code is also possible by adding code=PROMOCODE to the query of the URL. This is case sensitive and can be done as follows.

Pre-Fill from Existing Contact

To streamline the transaction even further, you can pre-fill all of the details of the customer if they are already a contact in your Salesforce Org. Just specify the sc__sc_id__c of the contact record with the cid param.

Pre-Filled Details without an Existing Contact

If you don’t have the contact already in your Salesforce org to reference, you can still pre-fill any details you may already know of the customer.

Note, you can use fname for First Name and lname for Last Name or you can specify name where the first and lastnames are separated by the first space.

Using the customised Buy Button URL, it is easy to add the link to an image.
