Now everything is done and ready to be used.

Now we will create our first flow. Flow is a funnel for your sales page. In simple words we are going to create and design your checkout page, upsells page, downsells page and thankyou page.

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 7

Click on “Create a Flow” button.

Now we will create a flow for our checkout page.

Creating a Flow in CartFlows – Custom Checkout Page

Flow is basically a sales funnel or a checkout page follow by upsells, downsells and thankyou page. You may keep it simple or use these features to upgrade.

To create a custom checkout page for your WooCommerce website, you need to create a flow in cartflows.

To create a flow, go to wp-admin > cartflows > Flows > add new. A new popup will appear that provides you the option to choose ready-made premium templates.

Since we have CartFlows Pro, we will import the 1st option which is a pro template.

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 8

Once the import process is over, you will be redirected to the newly created flow which will look something like this.

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 9

Now name the Flow by adding a Title and click on update button from the right sidebar.

Once the title has been saved, now you need to work on the flow of your customized woocommerce checkout page.

The Flow has 4 steps:

  1. Optin Page / Landing Page
  2. Checkout Page
  3. Upsells and Downsells Page
  4. Thankyou page
How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 10

If you want only the checkout page and want to get rig of the optin page, upsells and thankyou page. Then click on the delete button on the right sidebar of the steps.

So if you just want the checkout page, you delete the rest of the cartflows steps and click on the update button.

Your checkout page will look something like this.

Awesome Right. Yeh I Know. Thank me later.

But wait it will not work right now. Why? because right now you have neither assigned any product for that checkout page nor you made woocommerce to use this custom checkout page instead of the boring one.

Which WooCommerce will continue using the original but boring checkout page.

Assigning Product

So by default CartFlows ask you to assign a product, so that you can have different types of custom checkout page for each product and offer different upsells, thankyou page and other options.

But if you want to use a default custom checkout page for all WooCommerce products then don’t assign any products in this step.

Making WooCommerce use custom Checkout page.

To use a single custom checkout page for all of your products, you need to save and update your current flow and go to CartFlows Settings.

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 12

In CartFlows Settings > General Settings, you will find a dropdown with the Global Checkout options, as shown in the pic above.

Select the Flow that you have created right now. You will have only 1 flow, If you are creating for the first time.

Select that flow as your global checkout page and click on “Save Changes“. Your new custom woocommerce checkout page is now ready to be used.

Now test whether your new checkout page is working properly or not. Go to any products on your website and click on “Add to Cart” and proceed to checkout. If you see the newly create page then it means it working. Your WooCommerce payment gateways will be automatically be activated on your custom checkout page.

Do a test purchase and you are ready to rock.

But what if I want to use the Upsells and Thankyou page

Creating UpSells

Creating Upsells is really easy and is divided into 2 parts.

  • Designing the upsells page
  • Assigning a Product for upsells
Designing the upsells page

To Design the upsells page, open the flow and click on the edit link on that upsells column, Like the pic below:-

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 13

After clicking on the edit link, a new page will appear with a “Edit with Elementor” button and some custom fields under “Offer Page Settings“.

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 14

To edit the design of the page, click on Edit with Elementor and design the upsells page easily with elemetor.

A new tab will open where you can edit the design of the entire upsells page using the elementor drag and drop feature.

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 15

After you have designed the upsells page its time to assign a product for your upsells. So lets do that now

Assigning a Product for upsells

Assigning a product as upsells is really easy and simple in cartflows. All you need to do is just go to “Offer Page Settings” and click on “Select Product” and type the name of the product you want to assign to the upsells page.

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 16

As soon as type the name of the product, the plugin will do a quick search and show you the product if you have spelled it right.

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 17

After selecting the product on the Select product field, Click on “Save Changes“. You can also edit the other option like the redirect options if the customer bought the upsell or declined it.

There are several other function, but I think the default options are well set.

Now your upsells page is ready to use and we will move to the “Thankyou Page“.

Creating ThankYou Page

Editing the Thank you page is similar to the upsells page. To create and design your thank you page, you have to go through 2 steps:-

Step:1 – Designing the Thank you Page

Click the Edit link on the Thank You step in your flow, which will redirect you to a new page.

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 18

Click on the “Edit with Elementor” and edit the design of your thank you page.

Note: while editing you can’t view the details of order when successful. The Order details will only appear when an order is successful.
But I Got a Hack!
Open a New tab and order a product in test mode, when you will be redirected to the thank you page that you have designed now. When you are on the “Thank You Page“, then click on “edit with elementary” link on the top WordPress bar. And Now You can edit your thank you page with all the details shown.

How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 19

So now, our Thank you page is designed, all we need to do is the settings. So what are you waiting for. Lets get the settings done.

Step:2 – Editing the Settings
How To Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page  Easily - No Coding 20

So now you have choose the options that you want to show in your thank you page. The options are:-

  • Order Overview
  • Order Details
  • Billing Details
  • Shipping Details

So depending on your store type you may show this options. As I have a Digital store that runs on WooCommerce, so for that I don’t need to show Billing details, Shipping details.

So this is how you can Customize WooCommerce Checkout Page by yourself easily without coding.

Customizing WooCommerce Checkout Page using Codes

To be true, I hate the process of designing the checkout page using code, Why?

Because you need to create the HTML, CSS, JS and then hook the WooCommerce Actions and Filter together so that the page is designed.

And after all you cannot have the functions of upsells and thankyou page all together, You need to separately code all those.

So why would you burn your time by doing all those things manually or waster the money by hiring a developer to create those functions.

You get all those things bundled with a drag and drop interface with cartflows. So get CartFlows Pro today.

Conclusion

We have personally found that a custom well optimized checkout page increased the checkout and users experience. Many big companies are always testing their checkout process and are making them more friendly and optimizing the user experience.

So Its a great way to do that same those big companies are doing just by using a simple plugin that is going to benefit you in the long run.

If you have customized your checkout page then the next thing you should customize is the account page of your woocommerce.
