If you’re using WooCommerce to sell products on your WordPress site, you may have noticed that the default “Add to Cart” button text doesn’t necessarily fit with the rest of your site’s design or branding. Fortunately, it’s easy to change the Add to Cart button text in WooCommerce with a few simple steps.

In your WordPress dashboard, go to “Appearance” > “Theme Editor”.

Click on Theme Editor Under Appearance of WordPress

On the right-hand side, you will see “Theme Functions” under “Theme Files”; click on “Theme Functions”.

Scroll down to the “Button Text” section and enter the new text you want to use for the “Add to Cart” button. Keep in mind that you can also use HTML tags in this field to style the button text, so if you want to make the button text bold or add a different color, you can do so by adding the appropriate HTML tags.

Changing the Add to Cart button text in WooCommerce is a quick and easy way to customize your shop pages and match your site’s branding. By using HTML tags, you can also style the button text to create a more visually appealing design.

PRO TIP: If you are not familiar with code or are not comfortable making changes to your theme, we recommend that you seek help from a WooExpert or Developer. Making changes to your theme’s code can result in your site breaking if not done correctly.
