Checkout Pages

W3 Total Cache

If you are using the "W3 Total Cache" plugin, you may encounter some issues when visiting the checkout. This is due to aggressive page caching (which is a good thing!), but it can be easily resolved by excluding the checkout page URL from the cache plugin.

You need to exclude checkout pages by following these instructions-

Step 1: Note down the slug of your checkout page from the general settings

Checkout permalink

Step 2: Open the settings of “W3 Total Cache” and click on the "Page Cache" link.

Step 3: Scroll down below to the section until you see the ‘Never cache the following pages’ option

Step 4: To exclude "checkouts" pages enter your noted checkout page slug (from step 1) with special characters as shown in the screenshot: "/checkouts*"

Step 5: Click on "Save all settings".

Note: By default, the Checkout page's slug is "checkouts". If you had changed the checkout pages slug for any reason get the slug from FunnelKit (formerly WooFunnels) > Settings > General > Permalinks.

If you are creating any Embed Form or using CDN or Varnish cache, you just need to exclude the URL in the cache plugin's exclude settings.
