Easiest Way To Change WooCommerce Button Color in 5 Minutes



WooCommerce button colors are governed by the theme your site is running. By default, WooCommerce does come with some style for their buttons. However, theme makers nowadays usually add their own styling.

In the screenshot below, I have my button with black background:

If I use a different theme, chances are my button’s color is different.

In this post, I’m going to show you the quickest method to change WooCommerce’s buttons color. You can apply this method for other buttons on your site as well.

Steps To Change WooCommerce Button Colors

Changing WooCommerce button colors requires some

Step 1: Get the CSS selector of the button

The first step is to get the CSS selector of the button. Open your site in Chrome, right click on the button and select Inspect:

Inspect the button to get its class

You should see a new window appears. You should see something like this:

The default add to cart button in the inspector

That’s is our button, in HTML code.

Now, pay attention to the class part. As I’m in single product page, the button has three classes:

  1. single_add_to_cart_button
  2. button
  3. alt

If the button is at a different page, you may see different classes.

If you know CSS, you should have no problem writing CSS selector for this button.

In case you don’t know, here is the CSS selector:


How do we use this selector? Let’s find out in the next step.

Step 2: Writing CSS rules to change WooCommerce buttons’ colors

First thing first, let’s pick a color for our button. The quickest way to get a color is to go to Google and search for colorpicker:

Get the new color for the add to cart button

Let’s drag the sliders (the round buttons) to select the color you want to use. For example, I pick pink as my button’s background color:

Copy the code starts with # under HEX. That’s the color code we need for our CSS rule.

Now, let’s go to your theme customizer by navigating to Appearance->Customize-> Additional CSS and put the follow code at the end of the code box:

button.single_add_to_cart_button.button.alt {
	background-color: #d92bb3;

The box should look like this:

Click on the Publish button at the top of the page, then go to the product page, you should see the button’s background is now pink:

Bonus tip: How to change the button’s text color

In my opinion, white text on a dark pink background looks great. However, what if you don’t like this combination. Maybe you want to have yellow text. How can you achieve that?

Let’s go to the color picker on Google and select a color for your button’s text. Then, enter the following line in the customize->additional CSS box:

color: #f2fc2b;

#f2fc2b is a bright yellow color. Your code in the additional CSS box should look like this:

Then, publish the code again and you should see the result as expected:

button text color is now yellow

What if all of this doesn’t work?

This method works on most themes. However, there are some cases it may not work. Why so? It’s is because some plugins or themes may have stronger CSS rule applied to the button. The CSS people call it rules’ specificity.

If you face such problems, you need to come up with stronger rule, with higher specificity. How can you do that? By preceding the button’s selector with its parents selectors.

Sounds confusing? Yes, it is if you don’t know CSS.

If you don’t want to go through the hassle dealing with writing CSS, let’s try my plugin out. It lets you change button’s color, text, icon… and even the quantity box.
