Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 5:18 am

If you’re a developer, it’s likely that you’ll need to change your WooCommerce code at some point. Maybe you’re extending WooCommerce to work with a new payment gateway, or perhaps you’re customizing the checkout process. Whatever the reason, there are a few things you need to know before changing any WooCommerce code.

First, it’s important to understand that WooCommerce is built on top of WordPress. As such, any changes you make to the WooCommerce codebase will also affect WordPress. For this reason, it’s always a good idea to create a backup of your site before making any changes.

Secondly, when changing WooCommerce code, it’s important to be aware of the potential impact on your site’s performance. Any changes you make could potentially slow down your site, so it’s important to test thoroughly before making any live changes.

Finally, when making changes to WooCommerce code, be sure to use a child theme. This will ensure that your changes are not overwritten when WooCommerce is updated.

If you follow these three simple tips, you’ll be able to change your WooCommerce code with confidence, knowing that you’ve taken the necessary precautions to protect your site.
