  1. Rodolfo, I discovered. This is the code to return to the last visited product category, that is convenable for me. Please check the code I wrote, I tested and it works on my website. Should I clean something here?

    /* Set up session */
    add_action( 'init', 'wp_check_for_product_cat_sess');
    function wp_check_for_product_cat_sess(){
        if(!session_id()) {
    /* Set session variable when on Category or Product page */
    add_action( 'wp', 'wp_check_for_product_cat');
    function wp_check_for_product_cat(){
            global $wp_query;
            if( is_product_category() ){ // This is Category; use my ID
                    $_SESSION['wp_last_cat'] = $wp_query->get_queried_object()->term_id;
            if( is_product() ){ // This is Product; use my ID to get my Categories
                    $cats = get_the_terms( $wp_query->get_queried_object(), 'product_cat' ) ;
                    if( count( $cats ) > 0 ){
                            foreach($cats as $one_cat ){
                                    $_SESSION['wp_last_cat'] = $one_cat->term_id;
            if( is_cart() ){
                    // Here we output only on Cart page, as debug tool */
                    var_dump( $_SESSION['wp_last_cat'] );
    add_filter( 'woocommerce_return_to_shop_redirect', 'mytest_change_return_shop_url' );
    function mytest_change_return_shop_url() {
    return     $shop_page_url = get_term_link( $_SESSION['wp_last_cat'], 'product_cat' );
    1. Looks very good to me. Well done ๐Ÿ™‚
