How To Change Add To Cart, View Products, Select Options Button Text In WooCommerce

WooCommerce provides default text for their add to cart buttons. Here are the default text for all types of products in WooCommerce:

  1. Simple product – add to cart
  2. Variable product – select options
  3. Grouped product – View products

While those default text make sense, you often want to change it to something more attractive to boost your sales.

If you know PHP, you can easily change the text as you like. You can stop reading the post now. However, if you don’t know how to edit the WooCommerce functions, this post is for you.

Good news is, we are not going to mess with WooCommerce code today. That’s too risky. We are going to use a plugin that I created specifically for this purpose.

Now, we are going to change the WooCommerce button text for each case:

How to change add to cart text for simple product

Now, I assume that you have installed the plugin and activated it. If you click on Ultimate ATC Button->Configure buttons link on the left, you’ll see this interface:

ultimate add to cart configure buttons

Now you can see that at the top left section, there are three text boxes. If you want to change the add to cart text on simple products, simply add your desired text in the first box. For example, I’ll use the text “buy now”.

Make sure you scroll down and click on save changes.

Now, if I view the shop page or the product page of a simple product, I’ll see “Buy Now” instead of the default Add To Cart.

It’s simple, isn’t it?

Well, now you can guess how we can change the text for variable and grouped products.

How To Hide “Have a coupon? Click here to enter your code” On WooCommerce Checkout page

Coupon is a great way to make your customers happy. It is recommended that you use coupons when applicable. From my experience, having a coupon, even with a small discount can make the buying experience more pleasant. However, there are some stores, websites don’t use coupon. Take a consultant for example, she provides service at fix price per hour and normally, don’t offer discount. If she uses WooCommerce, on her checkout page, her customers see the message: “Have a coupon? Click here to enter your code” anyway. So, how can she remove that message?

How To Hide “Have a coupon? Click here to enter your code” on your checkout page

Some people may suggest you use CSS to hide the div that contains the message. While this method does the job, I would not recommend it. The reason is using CSS only hides the message, not remove it completely. In addition, WooCommerce has an option to disable that message, why don’t we use that?

So, to disable the message, you can go to WooCommerce->General and scroll down to the Enable Coupon section. You’ll see there is a checkbox there to let you enable and disable the use of coupons:

disable the use of coupons

As you can guess now, if you want to hide the message “Have a coupon? Click here to enter your code”, you should uncheck the checkbox “Enable the use of coupon codes”.

Next, scroll to the bottom and click on Save changes and you are done.

Conclusion

So, using coupons can be very effective for stores. However, you may not find it is applicable for your product. If you want to disable the use coupon on the checkout page, WooCommerce supports that by default and you can enable and disable it in WooCommerce settings.

Using a plugin is much more easier. You can download this WooCommerce Add To Cart button customizer to adjust the text, the look and feel of the buttons on your stores.

The goal

How about adding icon and image to the button

You may wonder can you add icon and images to the button (for example the cart icon). The answer is yes, you can but you probably need fontawesome for the icon and upload your image to your host before you can use that. Also, there are a lot more work to be done that just a simple code to add such features. You may need to use a plugin for that.

Conclusion

As you can see, you can change the add to cart text on the button quite easily. However, this method doesn’t offer more flexibility than that. If you want to have icon and image on the button, you probably need something more powerful such as a plugin.
