How to enable a direct checkout?

Cashier plugin provides Buy Now button links using which you can enable a WooCommerce direct checkout.

Clicking on the Buy Now button will skip the cart and land users straight to the checkout page. And if users’ previous orders and card/payment details are available, it will complete the order in one click, skipping checkout and payment stages.

You can enable a direct checkout for all products in your store, for specific products, or for product categories.
