Woocommerce add to cart button redirect to checkout

I created an ecommerce using the plugin woocommerce. I am selling only a subscription so the "/cart/" page is useless. I'm trying to get rid of it so that when my customer click on "Add to cart" button, he ends up on the checkout page.

you can use a filter in functions.php:

add_filter ('add_to_cart_redirect', 'redirect_to_checkout');

function redirect_to_checkout() {
    global $woocommerce;
    $checkout_url = $woocommerce->cart->get_checkout_url();
    return $checkout_url;

it doesn't seem to work with ajax, but it works from the single product pages, which I think is what you use

On the latest versions of WooCommerce (>= 2.1) the function can be simplified as:

function redirect_to_checkout() {
    return WC()->cart->get_checkout_url();
