WooCommerce: Rename “Place Order” Button @ Checkout

The “Place Order” button is the call to action you want ALL customers to take, right? Well, changing its label to a more specific, custom message could mean a small increase in sales conversion.

Thankfully, you can try this with as low as 4 lines of PHP, even if you don’t know coding. Just copy and paste the snippet by following the instructions below and give your unique store a unique checkout message ๐Ÿ™‚

   return 'Continue →'; 

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (before "?>" if you have it). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7+.
