Video Tutorial - How to Ensure Customers Return to Their Last Visited Page When 'Continue Shopping' is Clicked


By default, when customers add an item to cart, they are taken to the checkout page, on the checkout page there is a "Continue Shopping" button, this button will take customers to the Category Display (shopdisplaycategories.asp) page.

You may prefer your customers to return to the last page they visited before clicking 'Add to Cart'.

For example, let's say a customer searches for a product "soap" in the search bar, and the search result returns 5 pages, each page has 10 records.
The customer browses to page 3 and adds a product to the cart. After the customer clicks on "Continue Shopping", the customer would by default be taken to the Category Display (shopdisplaycategories.asp) page, this can be annoying if the customer wants to continue browsing their search results.

To ensure customers return to their last visited page when "Continue Shopping" is clicked follow these steps below:

Step 1. Log into your admin and go to Advanced Settings > Software Configuration

Step 2. In the "Search" field, enter: xcontinueshoppingdynamic and click Search.

Step 3. In the search result, set the xcontinueshoppingdynamic field value to Yes and click Continue.

Now go to your store and place a test order.

At the cart page, click the 'Continue Shopping' button and you should be redirected back to your last visited page.
