How to set your Flodesk handle as your Checkout page link
You can set your Flodesk handle as the default URL to point to any of your Checkout page links.

Will my old Checkout page links still work?
Your initial auto-generated Checkout page link with format “
solitary-truth-935.myflodesk.com/0a93b779-0e9d-4df56“ will always work.
However, you need to be mindful of the following: Once you claim your Flodesk handle and customize your Checkout links for the first time, those links will not work if you change them a second time. Here’s an example.
Say your current Checkout link is “
solitary-truth-935.myflodesk.com/0a93b779-0e9d-4df56“ and you edit your Flodesk handle and Checkout page link to create something like “
petra.myflodesk.com/recipe-book”. The very first time, both links will work.
However, if later on you change your link from “
petra.myflodesk.com/recipe-book” to “
petra.myflodesk.com/summer-recipes”, then the “
petra.myflodesk.com/recipe-book” won’t work anymore and people visiting that link will get a 404 error message.
As a best practice, always check to make sure your new links are working before you share them with your audience. To do this, just copy and paste the link into an incognito browser.
Customizing your Checkout page link helps communicate what your link points to with crystal clarity.
To customize your Checkout page link, click on the Setup button and navigate to the Advanced tab. Then simply click the pencil icon, edit the URL, and save your changes.
Alternatively, click the three dots (…) to access the quick access menu on the checkout’s card and select Customize link.
