Do you want to easily create a custom WooCommerce thank you page?

A custom order confirmation is a great way to connect with your customers and get more sales by promoting related products or even offering an exclusive coupon code.

In this article, we will show you how to create a custom WooCommerce thank you page.

How to Easily Create Custom WooCommerce Thank you Pages

Why Customize a WooCommerce Thank You Page in WordPress?

The order confirmation or thank you page may seem like a small part of your online store, but it can actually be a very valuable part of the sales process.

The default WooCommerce thank you page isn’t really optimized for conversions, so we recommend replacing it with a custom page. This page might encourage shoppers to buy more products by offering coupon codes or displaying popular products.

You can also show important information such as the items ordered, the total cost, and shipping information.

An example of a custom thank you page

With that said, let’s show you how to easily create a custom WooCommerce thank you page, step-by-step. Simply use the links below to jump straight to the method you want to use:

The easiest way to create a custom WooCommerce thank you page is by using FunnelKit Funnel Builder, formerly known as WooFunnels. It is the best WordPress sales funnel and automation plugin and comes with ready-made Thank You templates that you can easily add to your online store.

This allows you to create professionally-designed and helpful thank-you pages without having to write a single line of code.

Creating a custom thank you page using FunnelKit

Note: There’s also a FunnelKit Pro plugin that comes with more ‘thank you’ templates. However, we will be using the free version of FunnelKit as it has everything you need to replace the default WooCommerce thank you page with a custom design.

The first thing you need to do is install and activate the plugin. For more details, see our step-by-step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

Upon activation, go to FunnelKit » Templates and click on the ‘Checkout’ button.

FunnelKit's 'thank you' WooCommerce templates

Choose a Thank You Page Template

You can now choose from any of FunnelKit’s ready-made templates or select ‘Start from scratch.’ We recommend using a template as it helps you create a professionally designed Thank You page, fast.

To take a closer look at any template, simply hover your mouse over it and then click on the ‘Preview’ button when it appears.

Previewing FunnelKit's WooCommerce templates

FunnelKit will show a preview of the checkout page by default.

To see the thank you design instead, simply select ‘Thank You Page’ from the left-hand menu.

Choosing a 'thank you' template using FunnelKit

When you find a template you want to use, click on ‘Import This Funnel.’

We are using the Livewire template in all our images, but you can use any design you want.

Importing WooCommerce templates into WordPress

At this point, FunnelKit might ask you to install some extra plugins, such as SlingBlocks, which adds page-building features to the WordPress block editor.

If you see this message, then click on ‘Activate’ to get the plugins you need.

Installing WordPress page builder and design plugins

After that, type in a name for the custom thank you page. This is just for your reference, so you can use anything that will help you identify the page in your WordPress dashboard.

With that done, click on the ‘Add’ button.

Naming the custom WooCommerce thank you page

Customize Your WooCommerce Thank You Page

You’ll now see all the steps that are included in the template.

Since you are using the free version of FunnelKit, the template includes a thank you page and a custom WooCommerce checkout page, which you’ll need to set up separately. For detailed step-by-step instructions, please see our guide on how to customize the WooCommerce checkout page.

To go ahead and customize the thank you page, click on its ‘Edit’ link.

You can now click on ‘Edit Template’ to open the template in the WordPress block editor.

Note: If you are using a page builder plugin, then FunnelKit may open the template in a different editor. If this happens, then you’ll need to click on ‘Switch to WordPress editor’ instead of ‘Edit Template.’

Editing a WooCommerce 'thank you' template using the WordPress editor

You can now customize the template in exactly the same way you build any WordPress page. Simply click on any block and then fine-tune it using the settings in the right-hand menu and the mini toolbar.

For example, you’ll typically want to replace the placeholder logo with your own custom logo. To do this, click to select the Image block and then select ‘Replace’ in the mini toolbar.

Replacing the placeholder logo on a custom WooCommerce page

Now, either select Open Media Library and choose an image from the WordPress media library, or click on ‘Upload’ and select a file from your computer.

If you don’t already have a custom logo, then you can easily create one using web design software such as Canva.

After choosing an image, you can add image alt text, change the width, add rounded corners, and more using the settings in the right-hand menu.

Adding a custom logo to an online store

You’ll also want to replace the placeholder text with information about your own online marketplace. Simply click to select any text block and then type in your custom messaging.

You can also change the text’s styling using the settings in the right-hand menu. For example, you can use borders and box shadows to make the text stand out, change the font family, or change the text color in WordPress.

Changing the fonts used on a custom eCommerce page

Just don’t modify any of the text inside the [ ] brackets, as these tags allow FunnelKit to show personalized content, such as the customer’s name.

Customize the Order Details Widget

After that, scroll to the Order Details section and give it a click. This is a unique widget provided by FunnelKit that shows information about the customer’s order.

FunnelKit's Order Details widget

This widget works out of the box, but you may want to customize how it looks and the information it shows.

To start, you can change the section’s heading by typing into the ‘Heading’ field.

Showing order information on a custom 'order confirmed' page

You can also choose whether to show the product image for every item in the customer’s order using the ‘Show Image’ slider.

Do you sell subscriptions for a membership site, online courses, or similar? Then, you may want to show information about the customer’s subscription, such as the price and when their next payment is due.

Showing membership or subscription information on a custom WooCommerce page

To add this section, click to expand ‘Subscription’ in the right-hand menu. Then, enable the ‘Show Subscription Preview’ toggle.

In this section, you can also replace the default ‘Subscription’ text with your own messaging by typing into the ‘Heading’ field.

Adding subscription information to a custom online store design

Similarly, if you sell digital downloads, then you can add a ‘Downloads’ section to the thank you page. This contains useful information, such as the filename, the number of downloads remaining, and the expiration date.

You can even add a button so shoppers can download their purchase directly from the custom thank you page, which will improve the customer experience.

Showing digital downloads information on a custom WooCommerce 'order confirmed' page

To add this section, simply click to expand ‘Downloads’ in the right-hand menu. You can then add and remove information using the toggles.

You can also replace the default heading and button text with your own messaging.

When you are happy with how Order Details is set up, you may want to change how it looks by clicking on the ‘Style’ tab.

Here, you can change the heading and background colors that are used across the entire order section or change individual elements within the ‘Download’ or ‘Subscription’ sections to make them stand out.

Customizing the colors and fonts on a custom eCommerce page

Edit the Customer Details Widget

With that done, it’s time to look at Customer Details, which is another unique widget provided by FunnelKit.

Simply click to select the Customer Details section and then make your changes in the right-hand menu. For example, you can replace the default headline with your own messaging by typing it into the ‘Heading’ field.

Showing customer details on a custom 'order confirmed' design

You can also switch between a multi-column or single-column layout using the ‘Layout’ dropdown menu.

After that, you can click on the ‘Style’ tab and change the fonts, text size, colors, and more.

Add More Blocks to the Custom Thank You Page

When you are happy with the changes you’ve made to the template, you may want to add your own content. This can help you improve the customer experience, get more sales, promote your brand, and more.

To add blocks, simply click on the ‘+’ icon in the right-hand corner and then drag any block onto your design. Both FunnelKit, WooCommerce, and WordPress have lots of different blocks you can use, so let’s quickly look at a few examples.

  1. Promote Your Other WooCommerce Products

The thank you page may seem like the end of the buyer journey, but it doesn’t have to be. You can use this page to recommend other products the shopper may want to buy. This can get you more sales while also raising awareness about the other great products you sell.

To see what blocks are available, scroll to the ‘WooCommerce’ section in the left-hand menu. Here, you’ll find blocks such as Best-Selling Products, Newest Products, On Sale Products, and more.

Simply find the block you want to use and drag it into your design.

With that done, click to select the block and then customize it using the settings in the right-hand menu.

  1. Get More Social Media Followers

Social media websites like Twitter and Facebook are the perfect place to promote your products, so you’ll want to get as many followers as possible. With that in mind, it’s a good idea to add social media links to your custom thank you page.

Since these shoppers have already bought from your business, they’re more likely to follow you on Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, and other social platforms.

To get started, simply drag a Social Icons block onto your page. You can then click on the ‘+’ icon and choose the social icon that you want to add.

Adding a Social Icons block to a custom WooCommerce page

After making your selection, click on the new icon in the Social Icons block.

In the mini toolbar that appears, type in the URL of the profile you want to link to.

Adding social media links to a WooCommerce page

Simply repeat these steps to add all your social media accounts to the block.

  1. Give Customers Exclusive Coupon Codes

A coupon code encourages shoppers to buy from you again. For that reason, you may want to add a coupon code to your thank you page. For example, you might offer shoppers a free shipping discount on their next purchase.

Adding coupon codes to a custom 'thank you' page

You can create a coupon code with WooCommerce’s built-in coupon feature or by using a coupon code plugin.

After creating a coupon, simply add a Text block to the thank you page. You can then go ahead and type the coupon into this block, along with any other messaging you want to use.

Adding blocks to an online store design using the WordPress block editor

This is a great start, but you may want to show different coupon codes to different customers. For example, you could offer first-time customers a big percentage discount on their next purchase to help build customer loyalty.

The best way to do this is by upgrading to FunnelKit Builder Pro. This premium plugin has a powerful rules-based engine that allows you to show different coupons to shoppers based on the order total, item count, the WooCommerce payment gateway used, and much more.

Publish the Custom WooCommerce Thank You Page

When you’re happy with how the thank you page is set up, click on ‘Update’ to save your changes. After that, click on ‘Back To Thank You Page.’

Closing the FunnelKit page editor

You can now click on the ‘Draft’ button next to ‘Thank you Page’ and select ‘Publish’.

This will make the thank you page live on your WordPress website.

Method 2: Create a Custom WooCommerce Thank You Page Using a Page Builder

You can also create a custom WooCommerce thank you page using SeedProd. This allows you to design the page using a drag-and-drop editor, which is perfect if you find the WordPress block editor too restrictive or difficult to use.

SeedProd comes with more than 300+ professionally-designed templates, including eCommerce templates that you can use to create sales pages and lead squeeze pages.

Even better, SeedProd has full support for WooCommerce and even comes with ready-made WooCommerce blocks that you can simply drag onto your layouts.

The first thing you need to do is install and activate the plugin. For more details, see our step-by-step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

Note: There is a free version of SeedProd, but for this guide, we will use the Pro version because it has the built-in WooCommerce blocks we need. It also integrates with the email marketing services you may already be using to promote your online store.

Upon activation, go to SeedProd » Settings and enter your license key.

Entering the SeedProd license key

You can find this information in your account on the SeedProd website. After entering the license, click on the ‘Verify Key’ button.

After that, go to SeedProd » Landing Pages and click on ‘Add New Landing Page.’

The left-hand menu also has blocks that you can drag onto the order confirmation template.

Get More Sales By Adding an Upsell Section

You may be able to get more sales by promoting other products on the thank you page. One option is to create an upsell block using SeedProd’s sections.

Sections are ready-made collections of blocks that are commonly used together, so they can help you create beautifully-designed pages, fast.

Simply click on the ‘Sections’ tab and then select ‘Hero’ in the left-hand menu. After that, hover your mouse over ‘Hero 2’ and click on the ‘+’ icon when it appears.

Next, click to select the ‘Text’ block and then type in the product description.

You can encourage customers to add this item to their basket by replacing the placeholder call to action button with an ‘Add To Cart’ button.

To do this, click to select the ‘Call To Action’ block and then click on the ‘Delete Block’ icon.

Removing blocks from an online store template using SeedProd

Next, find the ‘Add To Cart’ block in the menu.

Simply drop this block onto the empty space in your Hero 2 section.

SeedProd's 'add to cart' block

Now, it’s time to connect this button to the right WooCommerce product.

To do this, you’ll need to know the product’s ID. If you don’t know this information, then go to Products » All Products in your WordPress dashboard. Here, simply hover your mouse over the product to see its ID.

Getting a product ID in WooCommerce

Back in the SeedProd page editor, click to select the ‘Add To Cart’ block and then add the ID to the ‘Product ID’ box.

You can also enable the ‘Direct to Checkout’ slider, so the shopper will go straight to your store’s checkout.

Adding a checkout button to a WooCommerce thank you page

At this point, you can change how the button looks using the settings in the left-hand menu. For example, you can change its color scheme, button text, alignment, and more.

After that, it’s a good idea to add a heading that promotes your upsell product. For example, you could use something like ‘You may also be interested in’ or ‘This is the perfect addition to your order.’

Simply drag a ‘Headline’ block onto your layout.

You can then type in the messaging you want to use.

Promote Your Best-Selling WooCommerce Products

Another option is adding a best-selling products section to your thank you page. Since these products are already popular, there’s a good chance the shopper may also want to buy them.

In the left-hand menu, find the ‘Best Selling Products’ block and drag it onto your layout.

Saving a custom WooCommerce thank you page

After publishing the page, you need to change the WooCommerce settings so customers get redirected to your new page.

The easiest way to do this is by using the Thank You Page for WooCommerce plugin. This plugin allows you to redirect customers to any URL after making a purchase.

The first thing you need to do is install and activate the plugin. For more details, see our step-by-step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

Upon activation, you’ll need to enter the URL of your custom thank you page.

To get this information, go to SeedProd » Landing Pages and find the thank you page you just created. You’ll find its link in the ‘URL’ column.

Getting the SeedProd page URL

Once you have this information, go to WooCommerce » Thank You Page.
