Add to Cart Button Custom Text


This plugin allows you to change the Add to cart text shown on the button used to buy a product in WooCommerce. You will be able to use different custom texts for:

Single product page:

  • Simple product (default: Add to cart)
  • External/Affiliate product (default: Buy product)
  • Grouped product (default: Add to cart)
  • Variable product (default: Add to cart)
  • Bookable product (WooCommerce Bookings) (default: Book now)

Archive pages (shop, category, tags…):

  • Simple product (default: Add to cart)
  • External/Affiliate product (default: Buy product)
  • Grouped product (default: View products)
  • Variable product (default: Select options)
  • Bookable product (WooCommerce Bookings) (default: Book now)

So you could choose up to ten different texts as per the type of product and the place it’s displayed. Just activate it and go to Settings > Add to Cart Button to choose your preferences. Default WooCommerce texts are used for default configuration. ASCII emojis are supported.

Supports bookable products provided by the WooCommerce Bookings plugin.

Spanish and catalan translations are available. Other translation contributions are welcome. Visit me on my web.

Thanks to JuanKa Diaz for the catalan translation.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of this plugin, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add new.

In the search field type Add to Cart Button Custom Text and click Install now.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading this plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favorite FTP application or by using the Upload plugin option in the Add plugin section in your WordPress dashboard. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Can I use HTML tags in the button text?

No, that isn’t supported

How can I put emojis in the button text?

Just copy them from somewhere and paste into the option

Some texts in the settings page are displayed in my language, but some others aren’t

Most of the texts used are translated by the translations files of WooCommerce. Some of them aren’t, so you’ll see them in English.

May I contribute to the plugin?

Yes, you can translate it into your language. They’re just a few sentences.

Se dice que se puede cambiar el texto de los productos que permiten reserva pero no es verdad. Cuando esto sea posible le daré 5 estrellas.

Quiza como ya hace tiempo no lo actualizan dejó de funcionar pero no hubo manera de echarlo a andar. Una pena porque no encuentro solución para cambiar el texto del botón

Rapido, funcional, Ligero y hace lo que promete. Lo recomiendo en todos mi proyectos para clientes que necesitan hacer cambios ágiles en su Ecommerce para adaptarse a estrategias de marketing relacionados con los botones del comercio (comprar, obtener, contratar, adquirir, etc). 5 estrellas.
