How many times have you wished that after someone makes a purchase you could redirect them to a page with a thank you, maybe additional instructions, even an up-sell topped off with their order details.
Watch this video and/or continue with the post
The WooCommerce Redirect Thank You plugin is so simple to set up.
After installing the WooCommerce Redirect Thank You plugin you will want to create your thank you pages. You may want to create both a general thank you page that you can use globally, or of course you can create one specifically for any product.
This gives an opportunity to cross-sell, up-sell, offer a discount or a special coupon, and of course, a customized thank you. As you can see here, I have added a thank you as well as an up-sell with a coupon offer, using a WooCommerce block.
Global Thank You Page
Now go into your WooCommerce > Settings and you will find the tab Thank You where you can set your global thank you page.
First you will find the option to choose either a specific page you have created, or send it to a specific URL. If you want, you can add any scripts.
You can also redirect these pages based on the payment gateway they chose.
Or if you prefer, you can add a special thank you to the completed email order. You can create as many of these as you want based on specific products or categories.
Here I have created one for the product and thank you page I set up.
There are some shortcodes you can use as well. For example, you might choose to add the order details on the thank you page by using the shortcode.
Custom Thank-you Pages
Obviously from the sample thank you page that I created, I wanted it for a specific product vs. a global thanks. When I am in the product page, I can now choose a custom URL or a page as my custom thank you redirect.
And here is the final page.
Once the order has been completed, the customer will receive the final email that will include the additional notes that I showed you previously.
Get Creative with Your Thank You Page
The fact that you can create this page on your site, allows you to get very creative. And if you use a page builder, without making it overwhelming, you will have control of exactly how you want that thank you page to look.
Imagine creating a thank you video that comes from the store owner talking about their own experience with the product.
When You Have More Than One Product in Your Cart
What happens when someone purchases multiple items that have their own custom thank you page?
The product placed in the cart will be used for the redirect.
What about when several items are bought and only one has a custom thank you page?
They will be sent to that one redirect. This is why you might want to use the shortcode on the thank you page to reassure customers that their full order was accepted.
So there you have it, and as I said, it can’t get much simpler. Get the WooCommerce Redirect Thank You Plugin.
