Static Checkout Links

In their most basic form, a Paddle checkout can be accessed with a simple link. Paddle offers various optional extendability of these links to allow for deeper integrations with your websites/ application.

Note: It is recommended, where possible to use Paddle.js rather than linking directly to the checkout. We are unable to provide rich insights and analytics for direct checkout links in the same way we can for Paddle.js

Basic Usage

A standard checkout link looks as follows:

https://checkout.paddle.com/checkout/product/{product_id}

You can get a plain checkout link by visiting your Vendor Dashboard, clicking "Products" in the sidebar, and then "Checkout Link".

Optional URL Parameters

These values should be passed as GET variables at the end of the Checkout URL.
