How to open WooCommerce external products in a new tab

By default, there are no options in WooCommerce to open affiliate or external product links in another tab. This is one of the most frequently asked for feature with those using WooCommerce for affiliate stores.

We built extra features into our Kadence Woo Extras plugin that allows for the “Add to cart” or action button to open in a new tab. We also added support to make the product image in an archive open to the affiliate link. Getting it setup is simple.

Firstly, be sure you have the latest version of Kadence WooExtras installed on your site. Once installed, navigate to WooExtras> Affiliate Product Options, and enable the output:
enable WooExtras affiliate options

 

Once you’ve enabled the affiliate options in the WooExtras Settings, turn on the features you’d like to use.

Product Archive Settings appear as follows:
External Product Archive Settings

 

Single Product Options:
Affiliate Single Product Settings

 

Once you’re happy with your affiliate product settings, configure your affiliate/external products.

 

To configure an external/affiliate product, set the product data and add the product URL.  You can also change the “Buy Product” button text to whatever you like:
External Product Configuration

 

Set the up the information for the product as you would for any other product. Publish the product, and test that your link opens as desired:
