This article provides an understanding of how checkout redirects work in Memberstack. Checkout redirects are a vital part of the user experience, guiding customers to the appropriate page once they've completed their purchase.

Understanding Checkout Redirects

Checkout redirects occur after a user has successfully completed their purchase on the Stripe checkout page. Depending on the plan being purchased, the user is redirected to a specific page. This page is the signup redirect for the plan being purchased.

Setting Up Checkout Redirects

To set up a checkout redirect, you'll need to configure the signup redirect for the plan being purchased. This can be done in the plan settings of your Memberstack dashboard.

  1. Navigate to your Memberstack dashboard. Log into your Memberstack account and go to the 'Plans' page.

  2. Select the plan. Choose the plan for which you want to set the checkout redirect.

  3. Set the Signup Redirect. In the plan settings, locate the 'On Signup' field. Enter the URL of the page to which users should be redirected after completing their purchase.
