Have you ever needed to change the add-to-cart button text for different product types? Or the number of products displayed on the shop page? Or the tab labels “Product Description” and “Additional Information”?
Normally you would have to dive into some code and use hooks. If you are like me, that is something you like to stay away from. Your theme might offer some of these options but that isn’t always the case. Enter the free plugin, the WooCommerce Customizer, which allows you to do those things—and more.

The WooCommerce Customizer Plugin
Once you install and activate the free plugin, you will find a customizer tab in your WooCommerce settings.
How to Change the Cart Button Text on Your WooCommerce Shop Page
First off, you have options to change the cart button text on the four types of products.
You can also change the sales badge text.
Show How Many Products are Displayed per Page
This particular setting is available through the WooCommerce option in the customizer, so you can use it here or use that. I wouldn’t suggest this plugin if this is all you are using it for since you can do it natively with WooCommerce.
How to Customize Tab Titles on the Product Page
You know those two default tabs you get on your product pages, the description and additional information? Well, often there is a better way to define those, especially the additional information. You may want to list FAQ’s there or some specific details for that product.
You can also change the content headings, which are the headings under the tab that are often replicated:
For example, as you can see here, if I click on additional information, it will be repeated in the tab and the heading:
With this plugin I can change that:

How to Change Button Text on the Product Page
You will also be able to change button text on the product page similar to how you changed it on the shop page.
How to Change the Login Message
You have the option to change both the must be logged in text and the login text from the default.
How to Change the Coupon Text
Maybe you want something more enticing than just click to enter your code, say something like enter your code and save money:
Toggle the Create Account Checkbox
Instead of going with the default setting, you can set this to be checked or unchecked:
How to Change the Submit Order Button on the Checkout Page
On your checkout page, you can change the text of the submit order button:

Lastly, you can change the default placeholder image by setting this to a valid image URL:
As you can see, you can make some very useful customizations to your WooCommerce online store without having to know code. Just be aware that these are global changes that will affect all of your products.
You can get the free plugin over on WordPress.org.
