What are custom thank you pages per product for WooCommerce?
As normal, if you don’t apply any customization methods, then the system will automatically direct your customers to a default WooCommerce Thank You page immediately after they complete their order on your store.
However, today almost all online store owners realize the importance of a Thank You page and find a way to replace this default page with a new one. It’s called a custom Thank You page.
In WooCommerce, these custom Thank You pages are often divided into two main types, including general Thank You pages and custom Thank You pages per product for WooCommerce. The former is a single custom page where all your customers will be directed after checkout regardless of which product they have bought. Meanwhile, setting up the latter means that you will create different Thank You pages for individual products. Some plugins also allow users to create category Thank You pages.
As a matter of fact, there has been a significant increase in the number of WooCommerce store owners choosing to create a custom thank you page for every single product rather than a general Thank You page. Why is that? Which benefits you will gain from this page set-up type? Keep reading to find out the answer.
Why should we create custom thank you pages per product for WooCommerce?
Replacing a default Thank You page with a custom one is definitely a wise decision because this customized page offers space for you to add dozens of things, depending on your ideas and purposes. But in some cases, it seems that only one general Thank You page is not enough. Why did we say that?
Different products, different features
Imagine that you have a store with a wide range of products and services. Each of them, of course, has its own feature and meets customers’ different demands. As a result, you will need different content shown on the page so that it can satisfy the customers, thus reaching the conversion rate as high as possible.
Let’s see some simple examples
To give you a clearer understanding, we will show some practical examples. Your WooCommerce has two types of products, including tangible and intangible ones. Tangible products can be books, clothes, Yoga mats, food, and so on while intangible goods include digital products such as ebooks, mobile apps & games, and WordPress themes & plugins.
As you can see, these two types are so far different from each other. Therefore, using the same Thank You page is not highly recommended. Instead, for each, it is essential to consider designing appropriate elements to add to its own Thank You page. For instance, you are selling coaching sessions. Then, you will want to provide customers with detailed instruction on what to do next (an instructional video or illustrated images). But those who buy several books or a suit of clothes from your store won’t need that kind of information. Instead, they will want to see the shipping process shown on the page. In this case, a location map is necessary.
With a store of various products, a WooCommerce custom Thank You page per product is necessary. Depending on the kinds of purchased products, you will need different Thank You pages to design the content matching that product.

Use a WooCommerce custom Thank You Page plugin
To have a WooCommerce custom Thank You page per product, you need the support of a WooCommerce thank you page plugin. There are several plugins that can help you cover this setup, namely WooCommerce Redirect Thank You, YITH Custom Thank You Page for WooCommerce, Custom Thank You Page by StoreApps, and many others.
With these plugins, you can choose to create a general Thank You page for the whole store or different Thank You pages for specific products. If you select the latter, then create multiple pages and link them with individual products.
Depending on which plugin you choose to use, your Thank You pages will work in different ways. But in general, many of them often follow the rules shown below:
- Every single product can have a separate custom Thank You page
- The same Thank You page can be used for many products
- Not every product requires a different Thank You page. So some products can be redirected to their own Thank You pages while some others will be redirected to the general Thank You page that is set as the default.
- If the customers order multiple products while each of them has different Thank You pages, then they will be directed to the first custom Thank You page.
