I want to redirect the page when i am clicking add to cart button

For ex :

product_Name : Product1

Redirect_url : www.somedomain.com...\Product1 (other site url not mine)

product_Name : Product2

Redirect_url : www.somedomain.com...\Product2 (other site url not mine)

when I am clicking add to cart button just to redirect www.somedomain.com\...\Product1 .. \product... not to redirect checkout/cart/page

There is an option on the add to cart from to submit submit_route_data which will override the standard add to cart url used in Magento.

public function getSubmitUrl($product, $additional = array())
    $submitRouteData = $this->getData('submit_route_data');
    if ($submitRouteData) {
        $route = $submitRouteData['route'];
        $params = isset($submitRouteData['params']) ? $submitRouteData['params'] : array();
        $submitUrl = $this->getUrl($route, array_merge($params, $additional));
    } else {
        $submitUrl = $this->getAddToCartUrl($product, $additional);
    return $submitUrl;

I have not used this myself but this should work at least for internal urls. An example can be found at app/code/core/Mage/Checkout/Block/Cart/Item/Configure.php in the function _prepareLayout.

For external urls you may need to work with the event controller_action_(pre|post)dispatch_{{fullActionName}} here you should be able to catch the pre dispatch for the add to cart action and then simply redirect the user when the product being added matches a certain product.

Please update from

System -> Configuration -> Checkout -> Shopping Cart -> Set After Adding a Product Redirect to Shopping Cart = Yes

Check below screenshot.

enter image description here


Go to app/code/core/Mage/Checkout/controllers/CartController.php

protected function _goBack()
        $returnUrl = $this->getRequest()->getParam('return_url');
        if ($returnUrl) {

            if (!$this->_isUrlInternal($returnUrl)) {
                throw new Mage_Exception('External urls redirect to "' . $returnUrl . '" denied!');

        } elseif (!Mage::getStoreConfig('checkout/cart/redirect_to_cart')
            && !$this->getRequest()->getParam('in_cart')
            && $backUrl = $this->_getRefererUrl()
        ) {
        } else {
            if (($this->getRequest()->getActionName() == 'add') && !$this->getRequest()->getParam('in_cart')) {
            $this->_redirect('checkout/cart');//enter url to redirect page
        return $this;
