First, change Add to Cart Button to Buy Now.

Then add a hidden input field to the #product_addtocart_form form. Name should be return_url and its value should be <?php echo Mage::getUrl('checkout/onepage')?>":

<input type="hidden" value="<?php echo Mage::getUrl('checkout/onepage')?>" name="return_url" />

If you want both Add to Cart and Buy now, add the buy now button to addtoCart.phtml

<button type="button" 
        title="<?php echo $buttonTitle ?>"
        class="button btn-cart" 

On that buttons onlick event, a custom VarienForm is used, productBuyNowForm.submit(this), which will submit this form and redirect to checkout onepage.

To define this custom form, add the following JavaScript code at view.phtml

var productBuyNowForm = new VarienForm('product_addtocart_form');
productBuyNowForm.submit = function (button, url) {
    if (this.validator.validate()) {
        var form = this.form;
        var oldUrl = form.action;

        if (url) {
            form.action = url;

        /* add return Url */
        var inputreturn= document.createElement("input");
        inputreturn.type = "hidden";
        inputreturn.name = "return_url";
        inputreturn.value = "<?php echo Mage::getUrl('checkout/onepage')?>";
        /* add return Url */
        // Append a line break 
        var e = null;
        try {
        } catch (e) {
        this.form.action = oldUrl;
        if (e) {
            throw e;

        if (button && button != 'undefined') {
            button.disabled = true;
  • Sir thanks for your answer, I tried your solution. First i was hide my add to cart button and create new Buy now button in addtocart.phtml then added needed code from your solution. Output it display a button with out any action. Again i was enable add to cart button then i will check, Buy now button takes no action, Add to cart button goes to check out page, but i can't enter any data in one page checkout. All the sections are empty or can't show the content area just show the heading only. Jun 29, 2016 at 7:21
