Add to cart via QueryString

Jul 30, 2009 at 10:59 PM

Is it possible to add a product to the cart via querystring link on an image?

I want to add an image to the frontpage (which is not part of the shop) that offers a special priced product - simple one click to add to cart...

I don't want to send them to the shop, just add the product.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Pete,

Basically No!..this is because the add to cart needs to check if models and options (which it currently does by looking at the web control on postback).  Although I can see that this would be a nice feature, and could be done by passing in the needed option via a URL.

Only way around this could be to place a product list module on the front page with a bespoke template and a special css on the buy button to display your image.  A bit of a nasty work around and I'm unsure if it would work correctly, but you could give it a try....

Regards,

Dave.
