  1. Set your external storefront redirect URL to your old Thank You page URL. 

Thank You Page or Notification URL

There are two ways 1ShoppingCart can notify SmarterU of completed purchases.

  • Thank You page - After a customer pays for an order, they are redirected to a Thank You page. If you set SmarterU as a Thank You page, you will need to specify a redirect URL on your external storefront. Customers will be sent to this page after the order is processed by SmarterU. You can specify a Thank You page for your entire store, or for individual products. The latter is a good option if you sell products that are not SmarterU courses and/or you want orders to be sent to SmarterU immediately. 
  • Notification URL - If you use a notification URL, 1ShoppingCart will send the order information to this URL. The information is not sent immediately. This is a good option if all your products are SmarterU courses.
