Transforming Your WooCommerce Checkout: A Step-by-Step Guide
Transforming the layout and design of your WooCommerce checkout page can be a game-changer in converting visitors into customers. In this article, we'll take you through a step-by-step guide on how to transform your WooCommerce checkout using a free plugin, WooLentor.
What We Will Make
Before we dive into the process, let's take a look at what we will create. The Checkout we'll create is a Shopify-style checkout, which is cleaner and simpler than the standard WooCommerce checkout. The multi-step form makes it easy for customers to navigate the checkout process. The header and footer are removed to prevent customers from navigating to other pages. Still, a menu at the bottom gives customers an opportunity to continue shopping if they decide not to checkout.
Why We Use Shopify-style Checkout
The Shopify-style checkout is a proven design that converts visitors into customers. The checkout process is broken down into manageable sections, which provides customers with an overview of the order and gives them a better sense of the checkout process's progress. The design's simplicity compels customers to complete their orders instead of abandoning them due to a lengthy, confusing checkout process.
Step 1 - Download WooLentor
The first thing you need to do is download the WooLentor plugin from Hash themes. While they also have a paid version, we'll only use the free version for this guide.
Step 2 - Install and Activate the Plugin
Once you've downloaded the plugin, install it, and activate it. When you activate it, you'll see a new WooLentor setting in the control panel.
Step 3 - Enable the Shopify-style Checkout
In the WooLentor Setting, you'll find the Models tab where you'll see the Shopify-style checkout option. Enable this option by clicking on the icon, and turn it on. You can deactivate all other functions if you don't need them.
Step 4 - Upload your Logo
After enabling the Shopify-style checkout, the next thing to do is upload your logo. Navigate to the WooLentor setting, click on the settings, and upload your logo under the branding section.
Step 5 - Add a Checkout Menu
To add a menu in the checkout page's bottom part, navigate to the WooLentor setting, click on the Button Menu, and add a Checkout menu. You can customize the menu to link to other pages, products, or categories.
Step 6 - Change the Labels
To customize the checkout labels, navigate to the WooLentor setting and click on the Rename Label section. In this section, you can change the name of all fields or any options that you want to adapt to your language.
Step 7 - Preview Your New Checkout
That’s almost it! Refresh your checkout page, and you should see your new Shopify-style checkout page. If there are minor fixes that need to be made, you can adjust them in the WooCommerce or WordPress settings. You can also look for further guidance and tutorials on the WooLentor website.
Transforming your WooCommerce checkout page doesn't require advanced coding skills. With this step-by-step guide and WooLentor plugin, anyone can revamp their WooCommerce checkout. By creating a checkout process that's accessible and easy to use, you can increase your chances of converting visitors into customers. Remember, a well-designed checkout process can make a significant difference in your ROI and customer retention.
