Redirect ‘cart’ page and skip to checkout

In most cases, users are only shopping for a few items or looking for a quick buy when they visit your store. This snippet will let the user skip the cart page and go right to the checkout page. Often, the checkout page has everything they need to see, so this snippet can help avoid abandoned carts caused by an unneeded cart page.

add_filter( 'add_to_cart_redirect', 'redirect_to_checkout' );
function redirect_to_checkout() {
 global $woocommerce;
 $checkout_url = $woocommerce->cart->get_checkout_url();
 return $checkout_url;
