To create a custom thank-you page in WooCommerce after a purchase, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a new WordPress page: Go to your WordPress admin dashboard and navigate to Pages > Add New. Give your page a title (e.g., "Thank You") and add any content you want to display on the thank-you page. This content could include a message, a discount code, or any other information you want to provide to customers after their purchase.
  2. Customize the page template: By default, WooCommerce will redirect customers to the default thank-you page. To override this behavior and use your custom thank-you page, you'll need to modify the page template. In the page editor, look for the "Page Attributes" section on the right-hand side. Under the "Template" dropdown, select "Custom Thank You Page" or any similar custom template option specific to your WooCommerce theme.
  3. Install and activate a page builder plugin (optional): If you want to create a visually appealing thank-you page layout, consider using a page builder plugin like Elementor or Beaver Builder. Install and activate the plugin of your choice from the WordPress plugin repository and use it to design the layout of your custom thank-you page. These plugins provide drag-and-drop functionality, allowing you to add elements, images, videos, and more to enhance the visual appearance of your thank-you page.
  4. Add dynamic purchase details: To make the thank-you page more personalized and informative, you can display dynamic purchase details such as order information, customer name, order total, etc. WooCommerce provides shortcodes that can be used to display this information automatically. For example, you can use [woocommerce_thankyou_order_received_text] shortcode to display the order confirmation text on the thank-you page.
  5. Save and publish the custom thank-you page: Once you have finished customizing the page layout and added dynamic purchase details, click the "Publish" button to save and publish the custom thank-you page.
  6. Redirect customers to the custom thank-you page: To make sure customers are redirected to your custom thank-you page after a successful purchase, you'll need to update the WooCommerce settings. Go to WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > Page Setup. Here, under the "Thank You Page" section, select the custom thank-you page you created from the dropdown.

By following these steps, you can create a custom thank-you page in WooCommerce that enhances the post-purchase experience for your customers.
