Customize Your WooCommerce Button and Tabs Text without Knowing Code

letters

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

Although some themes, like Storefront, do let you control the number of columns, not many offer you the option of controlling the number of products displayed per page:

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:

tab titles and tab headings

For example, as you can see here, if I click on additional information, it will be repeated in the tab and the heading:

additional information tab

With this plugin I can change that:

If you want to take this a step farther and create additional tabs, and choose the order of the tabs, check out our post on the custom tab extension for WooCommerce.

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 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

How to Change the Tax Labels

In addition, you can change the tax, including and excluding tax labels:

How to Change the Placeholder Image Source

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.
