The most important aspect of any WooCommerce store is customer satisfaction. Creating a personalized thank you page in your WooCommerce store is a part of it. By displaying a personalized message at the end of the buyer’s journey, you can effectively communicate with your customers.
With a well-planned WooCommerce custom thank you page, you can increase the sales of your WooCommerce store.
WooCommerce comes with a standard thank you page that only displays the default message and order details. But that isn’t appealing, and you can’t add your own message. To have more functions, something custom must be used.
Customizing the thank you page or adding a custom thank you page can be confusing if you’ve just started a WooCommerce store.
I’ll walk you through the process of creating a custom thank you page for WooCommerce.
Why Include a ‘Custom Thank You/Order Page’?
The thank you page is the final step in the buyer’s journey. As a result, it is natural to wonder why someone would include a custom thank you page. You can, of course, display the default message with the default thank you page, but this will not provide your customers with a positive experience.
A custom thank you page allows you to display personalized messages, links, videos, and other media that delight customers and encourage them to take action.
You can even use a custom link on the thank you page to redirect traffic to another product page. It will increase the likelihood of more sales and improved user engagement for the WooCommerce store.
What Are the Advantages of Creating a Custom Thank You/Order Page?
Are you wondering why the custom that you page is important? It is common to believe that a custom thank you page is unnecessary because WooCommerce includes one by default. If you believe this and are not using a custom one, you are passing up a significant opportunity.
Here are some of the advantages of having a personalized thank you page:
- Increases the chance of getting upsells
- You can redirect customers to another product page
- Can display custom messages to make customers happy
- Easy to show product promo video for an upcoming product
