Thanks so much for this solution.  adding the shopping_url= http://whatever   worked beautifully.  And you are correct, you do not have to copy and paste the entire button again.  I have struggled with this for over a year and so happy to find a solution!  thanks again.

My site also has the Continue Shopping link issue of not enabling customers to be returned to a specific page.

I thought I had the matter resolved by developing a generic page with links back to pages until I sought to connect that link to the Continue Shopping button. No luck hence coming to this community.

 

Is anyone aware of a means to connect a page URL to the Paypal Continue Shopping button? Today I had to manually coach two customers online on how to continue their shopping.

Any luck resolving this issue of the Continue Shopping Link?  I'm having the same issue and on a tight deadline to get the fixed by 8/1.

My "continue shopping" link in the cart is taking people back to the cancellation page instead of the page they were previously on ... wish it were the main page or any other page on my website.  It's not canceling any items in the cart but the customer does not know that.  How do we fix this problem?

Hi Rita, I see you had this problem and there were a couple of workarounds posted in this string. I wonder if you tried the solutions and if your issue was resolved? I'm trying to find confirmation that this can be fixed. Thank you! -- Victoria

Hi Veecee2020 and everyone else who has been trying to solve this issue,

 

I have finally resolved this issue on my own website, after two rounds of email discussion with Paypal Tech Support. Previous posts here on this topic outlined what to do with a Saved Button. I'll summarize:

 

1. Go to your Saved buttons, choose the "Action" dropdown menu and click Edit on the Add to Cart button you need to change. BTW, you need to edit each Add to Cart button individually. I have 4 items for sale and had to repeat these steps for each.

 

2. Scroll down to Step 3, Customize advanced features.

 

3. Once there, scroll down to Add Advanced Variables. I tried this many times based on previous solutions offered here, and had several different strings, like this one shown as the Example on the edit page: address_override=1
notify_url=https://www.mywebsite.com/PayPal_IPN.

 

None of these ever worked. 😞

 

Here is what worked for me: In the text box, add this and only this: shopping_url=https://www.your website/your products page/.

For example, mine is: shopping_url=http://stretchman.com/products/

 

4. Select the code, copy it, paste it to your webpage. Refresh the page and see if it works for you.

I figured out a workaround on this which involved having both an index.html page and a nearly duplicate Home.html page for the site which uses paypal for alumni dues payments. The only difference between the two pages is that the landing page (index.html) has this code at the end of the <head> section:

<script ="javascript" type="text/javascript">
var url = 'https://www.[websiteURL]/[Paypal-Payment-Page].html';   // you need to know where you want to redirect to beforehand
if (window.history.length > 2)
{
window.location.href = url;
}
</script>

With this code, the page that you want to return to is the Paypal-Payment-Page url.
The code checks the history of the site access, and if one has already visited the index URL (which is always the default landing page for the website URL), one is redirected from the index URL back to the PayPal payment page URL.
Once on the site, set any return to the home page to the Home URL instead of the index URL.
Hope that makes sense.
