Quite a few Shopify themes redirect to the cart after a user has added something. This is becoming less common now as most merchants are opting for no redirect.
This is because a customer will tend to purchase more in a single order if they aren’t taken straight to the cart. It gives you a chance to upsell as well and increase your Average order value.

If this doesn’t resolve the issue, your theme could be doing something a bit more abstract than normal. Simply reach out to us and we will see if there is a way to resolve it for you.
Most themes have a setting on their Product Pages in the “Customizer” in Shopify to change the behaviour of staying on the product page vs redirecting to cart.
Some are a bit more tricky. For example, if you use “Debut” or a similar free Shopify theme, you will need to edit a few theme files. If you aren’t comfortable doing this, we can do it for you.
