WooCommerce Pages

Upon installation, WooCommerce creates the following new pages via the Onboarding Wizard:

  1. Shop – No content required.
  2. Cart – Contains [woocommerce_cart] shortcode and shows the cart contents
  3. Checkout – Contains [woocommerce_checkout] shortcode and shows information such as shipping and payment options
  4. My Account – Contains [woocommerce_my_account] shortcode and shows each customer information related to their account, orders, etc.

Telling WooCommerce what pages to use ↑ Back to top

If you installed pages from the wizard, WooCommerce would have already set this up for you, however, if you setup new pages, or want to change what pages are used for things like cart and checkout, you need to tell WooCommerce which pages to use.

To tell WooCommerce what pages to use for cart and checkout go to WooCommerce > Settings > Checkout.

To tell WooCommerce what pages to use for the shop page go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products.

What exactly is the Shop Page? ↑ Back to top

The shop page is a placeholder for a post type archive for products. It may render differently than other pages on your install.

If you’re using things like SEO plugins, they may include settings specific to custom post type archives – these settings are what you should be using to control the shop page.

If you need to make this page compatible with a custom theme, please see our guide here.
