How to solve ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS with WooCommerce, WordPress, and Chrome

A quick note for anyone experiencing this ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS issue I spent half the day trying to fix today, since I found no blogs on it.

Apparently, Chrome was the only browser throwing this issue. I had a client’s e-commerce site (WordPress and WooCommerce) which suddenly started throwing Too Many Redirects errors today. Safari, Firefox, and IE all worked fine.

Typically, I would go to wp-admin first to try and fix this, then check the siteurl and home values in the options table in the WordPress db. Both, in this case, were fine. Googling turned up no help.

I wound up finding the issue was in the WooCommerce setting. Solution: visit, and make sure Force HTTP when leaving the checkout is UNchecked.

You probably just saved me a week, a lot of crying, and $$$ THANK YOU!!!!1 You're the real MVP. Have been up 24 hours trying to fix this!!!!

Oh my word, that was so simple a fix and I had no idea. Thank you for sharing this and saving me a bunch of wasted time trying to hunt down errors! 😀

Thank you so much for this help. I have been searching for the solution for over a week. The setting is now located at: wp-admin/admin.php?page=wc-settings&tab=advanced

Thanks! That saved me a huge amount of trouble. Really appreciate the help! I already just spenT hours trying to figure out what I did to cause the issue. The problem was surely compounded by me working on woocommerce add to cart redirects and thinking the issue was plugin related. I also updated my woocommerce plugin and spent countless amount of time reveerting back to older woocommerce versions. Of course that setting remains unchanged when you go back to earlier versions. Amazing what one wrong checked box can do.
