// Add "Buy Now" button to single product page
function wps_add_buy_now_button() {
    global $product;

    // Check if the product type is 'simple'
    if ( ! $product->is_type( 'simple' ) ) {
        return; // Only show on simple products

    // Output "Buy Now" button with product's direct checkout link
    echo '<a href="' . esc_url( '/checkout?add-to-cart=' . $product->get_id() ) . '" class="button">Buy Now</a>';

Code Explanation

  • This snippet adds a “Buy Now” button to the single product page of WooCommerce using the woocommerce_after_add_to_cart_form hook. It’s placed just below the product’s Add to Cart button.
  • Inside the callback function¬†add_buy_now_button(), we first check if the product type is “simple” using the¬†is_type() method. The button will only be displayed if the product type is simple.
  • Next, we construct the URL for the button’s link using the product’s ID and the /checkout?add-to-cart= endpoint. This URL ensures that the product is directly added to the cart and redirects the user to the checkout page.
  • Finally, we output the “Buy Now” button with the constructed URL as the link.
