Change Proceed To Checkout Text

Are you looking for a way to change the default “Proceed To Checkout” button text on the WooCommerce Cart Page? This code snippet will let you change the text to “Proceed Now“, “Go to checkout“, “Continue to the checkout“, or whatever custom text you like.


To do this you need to:

  1. Open WordPress admin panel, go to Appearance > Theme Editor.
  2. Open functions.php theme file.
  3. Add the following code at the bottom of function.php file of your child theme.
  4. Save the changes and check your website. Note that you can change the text included from ‘Proceed Now’ to whatever you wish. The custom text in proceed to checkout text will now be displayed.


To change the proceed to checkout button, ensure that you take a backup and only do this through your child theme so that future updates to your theme will not overwrite the code.
