How to Customize WooCommerce Product Page

The E-commerce business has two sides. 

Websites that are built very quickly from the ground up with very little forethought and websites that try to create a unique shopping experience so as to stand out in their design from the boilerplate templates offered on WooCommerce product pages.

Fair to say, that one must always strive for the latter.

But not everyone has the technical knowledge or budget required to customize WooCommerce product pages so that’s where WooCommerce plugins and product add-ons come into play.

Using WooCommerce custom product pages helps you increase conversions, reduce customer complaints, and increase the value associated with your online shop.

This post introduces you to customizing the WooCommerce product page using Climax Theme’s ShopPress plugin.

No product page is complete without having high-quality photos, informative descriptions, and product reviews that make the shopping experience more trustworthy.

Some products may also need an FAQ section so there is no one template formula to rely on and you should be actively trying to customize the WooCommerce product page for different categories or items.

Basic WooCommerce Product Page

Once you’ve installed WooCommerce and created a few products, those products are displayed on the product page that includes the core elements required to get a basic online store started.

But due to a lack of easily accessible customization options it won’t be enough and most of the time a bit out of place with the rest of your website’s design if left untouched.

Does My WordPress Theme Affect the Product Page?

Yes, it does, and to a surprising degree.

All major themes have their unique templates for the WooCommerce product page so depending on the theme you have active the design for your WooCommerce custom product page will differ.

For example, here we’ve simulated the Twenty Twenty-Two WordPress theme, Astra, and our very own Kata theme to showcase the difference in terms of the product page templates but you still won’t be able to edit them without the right plugin other than maybe some styling changes using CSS.

Editing Your WooCommerce Product Page using ShopPress & Elementor

ShopPress will allow you to customize the product page with a wide range of widgets that we have thoughtfully prepared for this specific purpose.

Other helpful modules include layout options, variation swatches with sample images, and size charts which help your customers make an informed purchase and reduce the burden of having to process returns and refunds.

ShopPress’s builder is powered by Elementor which is a leading page builder plugin on the WordPress repository.

Some Final Thoughts to Customize WooCommerce Product Page

Your product page alongside the shop page are the first stop for users to decide whether to proceed with a purchase or leave without a guarantee of ever coming back.

So showing all the necessary information in a compact way that prioritizes your branding, the shopping experience, and visual fidelity will help guide your visitors to the final checkout.

So when customizing your WooCommerce product page, it’s important to consider the purchases made on tablet and mobile devices, ensuring a seamless and responsive experience for users across devices.

Using WooCommerce Product Page customization plugins like ShopPress you can visually finetune existing WooCommerce product page templates and leap from ideas to a functional WooCommerce store with simple drag and drop movements.

To enhance the impact of your product page, focus on using professional images and their variations to showcase your products effectively.

Streamline your product description to deliver concise and compelling information, keeping the customer’s attention on the key selling points.

Remember, simplicity is key. By maintaining a clean and uncluttered design, you can create a visually appealing product page that adds value to your offerings.

Also try using a large font and a prominent color to highlight the price, making it stand out and catch the shopper’s eye.

Plus, make sure to consider placing information about deals and discount codes near the price area to entice and motivate customers to complete their purchase.

Finally, if you also purchase a theme that includes prebuilt WooCommerce product pages such as our own Kata theme, you can leverage already optimized and professionally designed single product pages and make only slight adjustments to suit your online shop’s unique needs.
