I recently ran across a problem of needing multiple Drupal Commerce add to cart buttons on a single page. Instead of trying to add a second add to cart form, I decided it would be easiest to create a custom link that could then be used to add products to the cart. This is useful if you need to create multiple add to cart links on the same page, or if you just need to create custom add to cart links to place in other areas of your Drupal Commerce website.

If you are familiar with me or with Codekarate.com, you know that one of the core goals is to help Drupal developers, designers, and site builders learn and improve their Drupal skills. Another one of my goals is to work to improve Drupal and the entire Drupal ecosystem. There is no better way to do that then to start getting more people involved with Drupal at a younger age.
