A WooCommerce custom thank you page has become a game-changer for online shopping stores.
WooCommerce custom thank you pages can be quite profitable for your business. They can help boost your brand, increase retention, and spread good word of mouth.
But most store owners are busy working on the other pages and not the thank you page. But not you!
In this post, we will look at how to create a personalized custom WooCommerce thank you page.
We'll also look at how to create an Opt-in thank you page to show users who sign up for your free offer.
For this, we'll be using the most powerful Funnel Builder, WooFunnels.
So, let's dive into the WooCommerce custom thank you page.
Contrary to popular beliefs, a thank you page is a powerful promotional opportunity. It is a page that will be shown to all your customers, making it the perfect place to add the details that you wish for them to know.
The default WooCommerce thank you page is definitely not up for the job.
As you can see, the WooCommerce default thank you page is a plain page that lacks any personalization or even branding on the page.
This page just lists down the order details and billing address, not conversing with the customer in any manner.
On the other hand, a custom, personalized thank you page doesn’t just end the conversation at the end of the transaction, but acts as a link between the customer and the brand, beyond the completed purchase.
This page can be used to:
And so much more.
For this, you need to create a WooCommerce custom thank you page that would assist you in taking conversions with customers beyond the website and lead to more conversions.
Like the thank you page shown above, a custom thank you page:
Let’s see how you can create this custom thank you page with WooFunnels.
With the WooFunnels Funnel Builder, you can create any page of the funnel with absolute ease.
Choosing a pre-built sales funnel template will present you with a funnel that already contains a landing page, a checkout page, an upsell page, and a thank you page.
But if you do not wish to go the classic funnel route, you can always build a funnel from scratch and only add the steps you require.
Today, we will design a funnel from scratch by adding a checkout and WooCommerce custom thank you page to it.
Here is what you need to design a converting checkout and thank you page:
Let's see how you create the pages:
We'll be using the Funnel Builder Pro to take advantage of different WooCommerce custom thank you page templates.
Once you have purchased its license, go to your WooFunnels account and download the following zip files:
1. WooFunnels Funnel Builder
2. WooFunnels Funnel Builder Pro
Install and activate both the plugins by uploading them to the WordPress website.
Next, go back to your account to get the activation code. From there, copy the license.
Then, paste the code into the WooFunnels Settings and click on 'Activate'.
That's it! You're now ready to use the WooFunnels Funnel Builder.
Go to WooFunnels > Funnels from the WordPress Bar on the side of the screen.
Then in Funnels click on the Add New button to create a new funnel.
Enter the name of your sales funnel and click on 'Add'.
Pre-built sales and opt-in funnel templates are displayed on the next screen.
You can import any of them or build a funnel from scratch.
You will be presented with a blank funnel where you add the steps as per your need to create the funnel from scratch.
Click on the Add New Step button, and choose the Checkout step to add to the funnel.
Name the page as you want and hit the Add button.
Similarly, add the WooCommerce Custom Thank you page to the funnel, and this is how your end funnel should look:
Your funnel now contains the checkout page and WooCommerce thankyou page.
You don't need to redirect any of the pages. Once the customer goes through the checkout page, they will automatically get redirected to the WooCommerce custom thank you page on this funnel.
We hope this answers your 'how do I redirect a thank you page in WooCommerce?' question.
You can choose a pre-designed template or build your pages from scratch.
WooFunnels deeply integrates with Elementor, Divi, Oxygen, Gutenberg, and others (using shortcodes) to offer you a range of beautifully designed templates and widgets to customize the pages as you want.
These templates are designed to boost your brand and minimize the need for support. Each of the templates available is extremely flexible and customizable.
From the template options given, choose the one you like and import it with one click.
WooFunnels allows you to choose from one-step, two-step, or three-step WooCommerce custom checkout page templates, so you have complete control over the checkout page that is displayed to the users.
Then again click on the edit button in Design to customize the page in Elementor.
WooFunnels offers you two special checkout widgets - Checkout Form and Mini Cart. You can use these with drag and drop motion if you’re designing the page from scratch.

Change the color, tabs, typography, alignment, and more to make the page look on-brand for your business.
Click on the Update button when you’re happy with the way the page looks.
In this section, you'll find the answer to your 'How do I customize my WooCommerce thank you page?' query.
Now, similar to the way you imported and customized the checkout page, you can edit the thank you page as well.
Next, click on the pencil icon and choose the WooCommerce Custom Thank You Page template you like, and import it to the funnel with one click.
Just like with the checkout page, WooFunnels has special widgets for the WooCommerce custom thank you page as well. These are - Customer Details and Order Details.
The Order Details list down the price, quantity, payment method, and product image among other order-related details.
You can edit the widget's content, style, and more with all the options provided.
While the Customer Details show the customer's email ID, billing address, and shipping details.
Edit this widget by customizing its heading and layout structure on the 'Content' tab.
While you can edit the color, typography, alignment, and more from the 'Style' tab.
Once you’re happy with the final look of the page, click on the Update button and all your changes will be saved.
This will create your WooCommerce custom thank you page.
Feel free to open the WooCommerce thank you page URL on your browser to see how it'll look to your customers.
Personalizations always help you win brownie points with the customers.
Adding customers’ names among other information helps build a bridge between you and the customers.
WooFunnels allows you to add that special touch to the thank you pages and bridge the gap with personalization shortcodes.
From the list, copy the WooCommerce thank you page shortcode you need and paste them onto your thank you page.
This would reflect the information gathered from the Optin and checkout forms in real-time.
Note: Our thank you page templates already use these codes to create personalized pages for your brand.
Once you’ve customized the pages as per your liking, make them global. It would mean that no matter what a user buys on your WooCommerce store, they’d be shown the custom checkout and thank you page only.
To set the checkout page as global, first, go to WooFunnels > Settings from the WordPress menu on the side of your window.
Select the Checkouts > Global Checkout tab and from the dropdown menu select the name of the checkout page you want to set as a global checkout.
When that is done, click on Save Changes to lock the changes made.
When you choose a checkout page from a funnel as the global checkout, the associated thank you page automatically gets marked as a global thank you page.
So for every purchase made the same custom checkout and WooCommerce order received page would be shown.
To round up this blog post, we're revealing a few must-have elements to try on your WooCommerce custom thank you pages. Be sure to split test these features using Google Analytics to monitor their success:
Once you have a user land on your WooCommerce custom thank you page, invite them to connect with you on other social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
Ask them to join your community group where they get to connect with the other customers and get conversations started.
This works as a great social proof as well and helps build trust amongst the users.
Guide your customers to read the blogs you’ve written and also the documents highlighting the product usage and functionality.
Getting the leads to explore your blogs would introduce them to the range of products and services you offer. They can read how the products might benefit them.
This might excite them more about getting their hands on the said products and trying them out for themselves.
So, linking out blogs and product documentation on your WooCommerce custom thank you page is a great way to keep the conversation with the customers going.
In the case of a digital downloadable product, highlight the steps that the user needs to follow to access the material.
It can be something as simple as a CTA button, or a step-by-step walkthrough video.
This extra step will help the users and improve their experience with your store.
We hope this article has given you a better idea of how to tailor your WooCommerce custom thank you pages for maximum conversions. And also, how a WooCommerce plugin like WooFunnels can help you with that.
