    Thanks for sharing. It worked for my site. Can I change the URL for “Continue shopping” button too? I tried using the following but failed. Appreciate your advice.

    function wc_continue_shopping_redirect_url() {
    return ‘’;
    add_filter(‘woocommerce_continue_shopping_redirect’, ‘wc_continue_shopping_redirect_url’);

    The Continue Shopping by default redirects the customer back to the product page that recently added to cart. If you’d like the change that redirect link, Add this code in your theme’s/Child theme’s functions.php file.

    * Redirect the Continue Shopping URL from the default (most recent added product) to
    * a custom URL.
    function pt_continue_shopping_redirect_url($url) {
    $url = “”; // Add your custom link here
    return $url;

    add_filter(‘woocommerce_continue_shopping_redirect’, ‘pt_continue_shopping_redirect_url’);
