add_action( 'woocommerce_widget_shopping_cart_buttons', 'bbloomer_minicart_additional_button', 9999 );

function bbloomer_minicart_additional_button() {
	echo '<a class="button">CLICK HERE</a>';

The add_action function hooks the bbloomer_minicart_additional_button function to the woocommerce_widget_shopping_cart_buttons action. This ensures that the custom button is added to the mini cart’s button section.

The priority is set to 9999 to ensure this custom button is added after the default buttons provided by WooCommerce.

The bbloomer_minicart_additional_button function is defined to output a link with the class “button” and the text “CLICK HERE”, which will appear as a button in the mini cart.
