Assume that add to Cart url is www.example.com/checkout/cart/add.

In this case, you can use event checkout_cart_add_product_complete .

Using this event,You can Redirect to last page from here you have click on AddtoCart


# app/code/Devamitbera/CartRedirect/Observer/ObserverToskipCartgotoCheckout
namespace Devamitbera\CartRedirect\Observer;

use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;
use Magento\Framework\App\Request\DataPersistorInterface;
use Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager;

class ObserverToskipCartgotoCheckout implements ObserverInterface

     * @var \Magento\Framework\UrlInterface
    protected $_urlManager;

     * @var \Magento\Framework\Message\ManagerInterface
    protected $messageManager;

     * @var \Magento\Framework\App\Response\RedirectInterface
    protected $redirect;

    private $_pageConfig;

     * @param \Magento\Framework\App\ActionFlag $actionFlag
     * @param \Magento\Framework\Message\ManagerInterface $messageManager
     * @param \Magento\Framework\App\Response\RedirectInterface $redirect
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\ActionFlag $actionFlag,
        \Magento\Framework\Message\ManagerInterface $messageManager,
        \Magento\Framework\App\Response\RedirectInterface $redirect,
        \Magento\Framework\UrlInterface $urlManager,
        \Magento\Framework\View\Page\Config $pageConfig     
    ) {
        $this->_actionFlag = $actionFlag;
        $this->messageManager = $messageManager;
        $this->_urlManager = $urlManager;
        $this->redirect = $redirect;


     * @param \Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer
     * @return void
    public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
        $request = $observer->getRequest();
        $response = $observer->getResponse();
        $product  = $observer->getProduct();
      if (!$request->isAjax()) {
            $url = $this->_urlManager->getUrl('checkout/index/index');


event file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
        <event name="checkout_cart_add_product_complete">
        <observer name="forrceToCheckout" instance="Devamitbera\CartRedirect\Observer\ObserverToskipCartgotoCheckout" />
  • Does it mean that a new file has to be added in custom theme module directory with the event defined in the discussion.

  • I have added the directories as required in App/code. I took a reference of this article - cloudways.com/blog/add-additional-options-in-magento-2. Still I get Error 503. What might be the error in execution, I'm not able to reach there.
