I'm having an issue creating a query string that will allow me to add a product to the users cart. I've followed the steps mentioned in this exchange and still can't get it to work. I've been using this link to try and add the configurable product:


The configurable product ID is 6184, the supper attribute (format) is 179 and the product ID 7927.

I just want to have a link in an email blast that, once clicked, the customer will automatically have the item added to their cart. Am I doing something wrong? I've read in some places that Magento no longer supports this standard query any more. Is that the case?

The super_attribute part of the url should be as follows:


In you question you say you used the product id but it should not be the product id but the attribute value selected of the simple product.

  • Thanks David! Where would I find the "attribute value selected of the simple product."

  • How are the options shown on the page? May 21, 2014 at 17:29
  • On the back end or front end?

  • On the Front end side May 21, 2014 at 17:33
  • It's a configurable product, the customer hits "choose an option" and is given three options: an MP3, MP4, or CD.
