Forwarding parameters - Overview

If, with your product, you redirect the customer to another URL once they have paid successfully, e.g.

  • because you deliver your product on your own site or
  • you want to display a thank you page once they have purchased the online course,

you can have the data that the customer provided when purchasing the product forwarded to your site as a URL parameter and read it out and use it there.

The URL of the page to which they are redirected contains the data relating to the purchase. What data is forwarded depends on which fields were displayed and filled out on the checkout page. More on this can be found under "How do I customize checkout pages?".

Setting the forwarding of parameters

  • In your product, under "Forward parameters" and "URL redirection to external success page", provide the URL to which you want the customer to be redirected once they have completed the purchase. Please note the information in the help content.
  • Click toggle switch to enable forwarding of parameters.
  • Then select which parameters you want to forward.
