WooCommerce provides default text for their buttons. Here are the default text for all types of products in WooCommerce:
- Simple product – add to cart
- Variable product – select options
- 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 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.

After clicking on save changes, I see the following results:
As you can see, changing the button text for your WooCommerce product can be very easy using the plugin. I hope you enjoy it. The plugin has a tons more options for you to fully customize your buttons.
