Customize WooCommerce checkout page

As an online store owner, you’re always looking for ways to improve the user experience of your store. This helps attract new customers while ensuring existing customers stay happy. You can customize the WooCommerce cart and checkout page by adding or removing information and functionality.

In this article, we’ll show you some different ways you can customize your WooCommerce cart and checkout page using Booster Plus.

#1: Remove the ‘Order Again’ Button

Removing the “Order Again” button from your checkout page might be beneficial for some businesses. You might consider doing this if you sell one-time, exclusive products such as memberships and subscriptions on your WooCommerce store.

Not allowing customers to order again is also useful if you want to allow customers to avail discounts only once. For instance, if you’re allowing a one-time 10% discount on all sports watches, you don’t want the same customer to avail the discount twice. Instead, customers who have already gotten the discount won’t be able to see the “Order Again” button.

This also gives everyone a chance to buy your products if you have limited stock or if you want to organize limited-time drops. In other words, if your products are limited in stock and sell out quickly, limiting customers from ordering again ensures everyone will be able to place an order.

Additionally, if you sell services, you’d want to remove the order again button.

How to Remove the ‘Order Again’ Button

You can remove the “Order Again” button from your online store using Booster Plus’s WooCommerce Checkout Customization module.

After you install and activate the Booster Plus for WooCommerce plugin, navigate to WooCommerceSettingsBooster to access the different modules.

WooCommerce Checkout Customization module

From the list of modules, select the checkbox next to WooCommerce Checkout Customization and click the Save changes button to continue. Now go to BoosterCart & CheckoutCheckout Customization to hide the “Order Again” button. Tick the checkbox next to Hide ‘Order Again’ Button on ‘View Order’ Page. Click the Save changes button to continue.

#2: Display Additional Fees

Once a customer adds everything to their cart and is ready to checkout, the last thing you’d want is to show additional fees. They’ll be more likely to rethink their purchase decision and may even bounce off your store.

Showing additional fees early on in the purchase process ensures customers know about any hidden or extra charges. This way, they won’t get demotivated seeing additional fees after they’ve decided to buy from you.

Charging additional fees is necessary for businesses that need to break even and cover all their costs. For instance, if you’ve hired labor to package products, you could charge customers additional processing fees which directly go towards the labor that does all the packaging.

How to Display Additional Fees

You can display additional fees on the checkout page of your online store using Booster Plus’s WooCommerce Checkout Fees module.

With the Booster Plus for WooCommerce plugin installed on your store, navigate to WooCommerceSettingsBooster to access the different modules.

WooCommerce Checkout Fees module

From the list of modules, select the checkbox next to WooCommerce Checkout Fees and click the Save changes button to continue.

Now go to BoosterCart & CheckoutCheckout Fees to display additional fees on the cart and checkout pages. You can select the number of additional fees you want to add to your cart and the checkout page. Once you add the title, you can select the type of fees, either fixed or by percentage, and then add the amount in the Value text field below. Once you’re done, click the Save changes button to continue.

Here’s what it looks like for your customers on the front-end:

#3: Add Custom Fields and Information on The Checkout Page

If you want to collect information from your customers when they checkout, you can use input fields. By adding custom input fields such as date picker fields, checkboxes, or text fields, you can collect information from customers during checkout.

For instance, if you sell flower bouquets on your WooCommerce store, adding a date picker and a text field will allow customers to let you know when they want the flowers delivered. They can enter a message they’d like to have printed on the gift card attached to the flower bouquet by using a text field. This helps you gather information from your customers on the checkout page.

Additionally, adding custom fields on the checkout page can also be useful if you want to display information on the checkout page. For example, you can display instructions, shipping and handling information, or the total weight package. This lets customers know about their orders before they’re dispatched.

How to Add Custom Fields and Information on The Checkout Page

You can add custom fields and information on the checkout page of your online store using Booster Plus’s WooCommerce Checkout Custom Fields and WooCommerce Checkout Custom Info modules.

Navigate to WooCommerceSettingsBooster from the admin panel to access the different modules.

WooCommerce Checkout Custom Fields module

From the list of modules, select the checkbox next to Checkout Custom Fields and Checkout Custom Info and click the Save changes button to continue.

WooCommerce Checkout Custom Info module

Now go to BoosterCart & CheckoutCheckout Custom Fields to display custom fields on the checkout page. You can enter the number of fields you want in the text field next to Custom Fields Number. You can edit your custom field by selecting the Type from a list of options including Text, Textarea, Checkbox, Datepicker, Weekpicker, Timepicker, Select, Radio, Password, Country, State, Email, and Phone.

After entering the label and description, click on the Save changes button to continue. Here’s how your customer will see custom fields on the checkout page:

Additionally, you can also customize the core WooCommerce checkout fields using the WooCommerce Checkout Core Fields module.

#4: Set up a Coupon Field

Setting up a coupon field on your WooCommerce store can help you offer discounts on products using coupons. For instance, you can provide coupon codes to customers that they can use to avail discounts at checkout. For example, you can provide “Free shipping above $50”. Once the customer reaches the minimum amount, they will be able to enter the coupon code and claim the discount at checkout.

Coupons encourage customers to buy more from you. Following our example from above, customers would want their cart value over $50 so that they can avail free shipping. This means that your customers might end up buying more from you than they had originally planned. This is a great way to boost your store’s average order value.

How to Set up a Coupon Field

You can set up a coupon field on your online store using Booster Plus’s WooCommerce Coupon Code Generator and WooCommerce URL Coupons and WooCommerce Coupon by User Role modules.

After installing the Booster Plus for WooCommerce plugin, navigate to WooCommerceSettingsBooster to access the different modules.

WooCommerce Coupon Code Generator

From the list of modules, select the checkbox next to Coupon Code Generator, Coupon by User Role, and URL Coupons and click the Save changes button to continue.

Additionally, you can hide the coupon field using Booster Plus’ WooCommerce Cart Customization module.

#5: Validate the Customer’s EU VAT

Setting up a way to validate the customer’s EU VAT number is necessary if your business operates in the EU or you sell to customers based in the EU. Ideally, you’d want to validate it right before they checkout so that your customers don’t have to pay more.

Additionally, this is also a great way to check how much tax the customer will have to pay if any. It also lets customers know exactly how much tax they have to pay before they checkout from your WooCommerce store.

How to Validate the Customer’s EU VAT

You can validate your customer’s EU VAT on the checkout page using Booster Plus’s WooCommerce EU VAT Number module.

Install and activate the Booster Plus for WooCommerce plugin. Next, navigate to WooCommerceSettingsBooster to access the different modules.

WooCommerce EU VAT module

From the list of modules, select the checkbox next to EU VAT Number and click the Save changes button to continue. Now go to BoosterCart & CheckoutEU VAT Number to let customers validate their details at checkout.

WooCommerce EU VAT settings

You can set this as a required field by selecting the checkbox next to Required. Additionally, you may add a description and customize the field label. Once you’re done customizing the different options, click the Save changes button to continue.

Here’s how customers will have to validate their EU VAT number at checkout:

#6: Let Customers Upload Files on The Checkout Page

If you sell customized products, you’ll need a way to let customers upload files on the checkout page. For instance, if you sell custom jewelry, you’ll need to be able to get the customer’s input on how they want to personalize it. Customers can upload an image of a monogram they want to be engraved on a necklace, for example.

Letting customers upload files on the checkout page is also great if you sell services and need to collect documents from customers such as a copy of their utility bill. Additionally, this is also useful if you offer technical analytics such as financial consultancy, business accountancy, or auditing services.

How to Let Customers Upload Files on The Checkout Page

You can let customers upload files on the checkout page using Booster Plus’s WooCommerce Checkout Files Upload module.

After installing and activating the Booster Plus for WooCommerce plugin, navigate to WooCommerceSettingsBooster to access the different modules.

WooCommerce Checkout Files Upload

From the list of modules, select the checkbox next to Checkout Files Upload and click the Save changes button to continue. Now go to BoosterCart & CheckoutCheckout Files Upload to configure the modules settings and customize the WooCommerce checkout page.

How to Customize The Mini Cart Widget
