Generate a Buy-Link

Overview

One of the options to integrate your platform with the 2Checkout systems is to generate a buy-link that you can then apply to the Buy button on your web store. In this article, we will show you how to create a buy-link both for a single product as well as for a multiple-selection of products.

Availability

All merchants (on any type of account) can generate a link from their Control Panel.

Generate a buy-link for a single product

Follow the steps below to generate a buy-link for a single product:

  1. Log in to your 2Checkout account in the Merchant Control Panel.
  2. Navigate to Setup and click on Generate links

3. Click on Checkout links and choose your shopping cart flow: default flows, ConvertPlus or InLine checkout. Here are the two most popular:

  • One page checkout without review 
  • One page checkout with review 
  • Learn more about purchase flows/funnels here.

5. The last step is to click on Generate Link to create your buy-link and place it on the call-to-action button on your online store. 

You can control order interface behavior with the advanced options for checkout.

Multi-select option in the Generate Links page

If you have more than 2000 products in your product catalog in your 2Checkout account, you can perform a multiple selection in the Generate links page, that allows you to select more products at a time instead of using individual search. This feature is available in all three shopping carts: default flow, ConvertPlus, and InLine cart.

To take advantage of the multi-select option in the Generate links page, you need to:

  1. Log in to your 2Checkout Merchant Control Panel.
  2. Navigate to Dashboard → Setup → Generate links.
  3. Click on Checkout links and choose your shopping cart flow: default flows, ConvertPlus or InLine checkout.
