Upon installation, WooCommerce creates the following new pages via the Setup Wizard:
- Shop – No content required.
- Cart – Contains shortcode and shows the cart contents
Your cart is currently empty.
- Checkout – Contains shortcode and shows information such as shipping and payment options
- My Account – Contains shortcode and shows each customer information related to their account, orders, etc.
Install pages again
If you skipped the Setup Wizard or want to install missing WooCommerce pages, go to WooCommerce > Status > Tools and use the page installer tool.
Tell WooCommerce what pages to use
If you set up new pages yourself, 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, Checkout, My Account, and Terms and Conditions, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced.
To tell WooCommerce what pages to use for the Shop page go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products.
What is the Shop page?
The Shop page is a placeholder for a post type archive for products. It may render differently than other pages in your install.
If you’re using SEO plugins, they may include settings specific to custom post type archives, and these settings are what you should be using to control the shop page.
This page should be compatible with all WordPress themes, even ones not made specifically for WooCommerce, as of version 3.3x. Should you be using a custom/child theme or a version of WooCommerce prior to 3.3x, or experiencing a compatibility issue, go to: Third-party/custom theme compatibility.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is it incorrect to set the Cart, Checkout and My Account pages to the same page?
It results in incorrect redirects and broken payment gateway functionality. WooCommerce 3.7 prevents this from happening.
