Creating unique external link for variants

Hey all, I've been working on a site with external links to amazon instead of sending a product to the cart page.

My problem is, I can't figure out a way to use an external link to be unique for each of the product's variants.

I've been using this article: Adding Metafields to Product Variants for Dawn Theme. (alanryan.dev) to create product variant's single text description successfully but hadn't had any luck with URL type variants.

Hi @erant ,

 

Since Shopify is an e-commerce platform, it provides only buynow option for product.

 

If you want to redirect your user to external link 🔗.

 

You have to edit main-product.liquid as you did for short description already.

 

Solution:

Create URL metafield at variant level check if it's not blank and create anchor tag having metafield url in else put quantity and buy now button code.

 

Same approach i did for my client too
