WooCommerce: Add Product to Cart When Visiting a Specific Page

We’ve already seen how to add a product to cart automatically when a user enters your website. However, I needed a different functionality on this same website, and specifically I wanted a product added to cart only when a user like you visits a specific WordPress page ID.

If you wish to test, go to my free video tutorial page called “How to Customize the WooCommerce Single Product Page“. As soon as the page loads a product is magically added to cart, so that the WooCommerce Checkout on that same page is populated with the hidden item. If you go to my Cart page right after visiting that landing page, you can verify there is a product in there.

So, how did I do it?

WooCommerce PHP Snippet: Add Product to Cart When Visiting a Specific WordPress Page ID

add_action( 'wp', 'bbloomer_add_product_to_cart_on_page_id_load' );
 
function bbloomer_add_product_to_cart_on_page_id_load() {
         
	// product ID to add to cart
	$product_id = 21874;

	// page ID to target         
	if ( is_page( 19473 ) ) {    
		WC()->cart->empty_cart();
		WC()->cart->add_to_cart( $product_id ); 
	}
	
}

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7+.

  1. For everyone who wants to redirect to another page, e.g. checkout page, can add this line before the last two braces:

       // page redirect
    	wp_safe_redirect('url' );
    exit; 
    

    Thought I share it, in case someone is also interested / looking for that solution

    1. Thank you!

  2. What If I want to make it for every page?

    Like If someone visits X page then ‘A’ product will be added
    and when someone visits Y page then ‘B’ Product will be added
