How to Create a Custom WooCommerce Thank You Page

The WooCommerce Thank You page is your opportunity to keep customers engaged even after purchasing.

Website owners often ignore this page and leave it with a basic Thank You message and perhaps a link to the User Account page.

But there is much more to do with this page.

You can lead customers to your social media, let them share their purchases on their own social media, or have them submit a review on your website.

Basic WooCommerce Thank You Page

The Thank You page is one of those pages that WooCommerce creates for you when you install the plugin on your website, but since it’s made dynamically you can’t access it from the pages menu.

But as is the case with the other pages it creates, the customization is very limited and the default page is very simple.

Therefore, if you want to use your Thank You page to boost your business and sales, you will need third-party help to achieve that.

The Impact of Your WordPress Theme on the Customization Process

Naturally, the theme you are using will have an impact on your Thank You page.

Each theme has its unique styles and they affect the page.

Here you can see how the page looks like with Kata:

You can see that these pages are very bland and offer no functionality except to provide customers with a summary of their purchase.
