WooCommerce Extended External Products

About the Extension

WooCommerce Extended External Productsis a plugin for WooCommerce which allows you to create an extra buy now button on your external products’ pages. The extra button can be created using your own artwork, such as a logo to the site where the product is located. This helps communicate to the customer that the product is located on another website.


  1. Connect to your server’s FTP
  2. Copy the “optart-woocommerce-extended-external-products” folder from the zip into the “wp-content/plugins” directory
  3. Login to your WordPress administrator panel
  4. Click the “Plugins” tab and you’ll see your newly installed plugin – activate it.


  1. Navigate to your website’s WordPress Admin panel.
  2. Make sure WooCommerce and the Extended External Products plug-in are installed and activated.
  3. In the left panel of the admin page, hover over the “products” button, and then select “External Sources”.
  4. Here is the page where you add your custom “buy now” buttons. To create one, enter a name, slug, description, and the image/logo you want to be displayed as your button. Then select the “Add New Tag” button.
  5. You should see that a new tag was generated. Now, navigate to “products” and select the external product you would like to add the button to.
  6. Once on the “Edit Product” page, on the right sidebar, you should see a box labeled “External Sources”. Type in the name of the source you created and select “Add”.
  7. Update the product page, and you will now see the button artwork you uploaded on the page. When selected by a customer, it will link to the product URL.
