There could be many reasons for you to create a custom checkout page and JetWooBuilder can help you with it no matter what. It offers you a few extensions created especially for checkout pages but you can use any Elementor widgets and build a layout that fits your online store best. Let’s go through the whole process step by step.
1 Step — Enable checkout widgets
All the widgets available with JetWooBuilder plugin can be easily disabled in the settings section. By default, they are all turned on, so you don’t need to think about it. However, just in case, you should check if they are enabled before starting to build a checkout page. Go to JetPlugins > JetWooBuilder Settings submenu and scroll the page down to the Checkout Available Widgets section. Make sure all the widget toggles are enabled.
2 Step — Start building a checkout template
Proceed to JetPlugins > Jet Woo Templates and press the “Add New Template” button. In the drop-down menu “This template for,” choose the “Checkout” option, name the template, and click the “Create Template” button.
As it was previously said, you can place any widgets to the checkout page and build a layout you need. However, there is a restriction here.
There are two types of checkout page template that you can create with the help of JetWooBuilder – main template and top template. The main template is assigned to the Checkout Template option while the top template is assigned to the Top Checkout Template option. Both options can be found in WooCommerce > Settings > Jet Woo Builder.
The main checkout template is responsible for displaying the main checkout form. Checkout Coupon Form, Checkout Login Form, and all other Elementor widgets that add a form to the page (like the Form widget of JetEngine plugin) won’t work properly in the main checkout template. You better not place them to the checkout template that you would like to assign to the Checkout Template option.
You can display additional forms in the top checkout template. Checkout Coupon Form, Checkout Login Form, and all other Elementor form widgets will work just fine here. On the other hand, other JetWooBuilder checkout widgets won’t be displayed correctly in the top template.
The reason for it is in the coding and the way the forms are displayed. So, once again, the widgets that you shouldn’t place to the main checkout template are:
- Checkout Coupon Form;
- Checkout Login Form;
- and all Elementor form widgets.
The widgets that you shouldn’t place to the top checkout template are:
- Checkout Additional Form;
- Checkout Billing Form;
- Checkout Order Review;
- Checkout Payment;
- Checkout Shipping Form.
3 Step — Fill the checkout page with widgets
Once the future checkout page is opened in the Elementor page builder, you can start filling it with sections and widgets. Let’s go through the widgets offered by the JetWooBuilder plugin for the checkout page and see what you can use them for.
Checkout Coupon Form
This widget adds a block that allows your customers to enter the coupon code. The block looks like notification with a button. The coupon adding form appears when the client clicks the button. In the Style menu tab, you can customize the look of the notification message, button, and form.
Checkout Login Form
If you want to offer customers to log in before filling the checkout form, this widget could help. The block’s appearance is similar to the coupon block – the client will see a notification message and a button. The login form itself will appear after clicking on the button. All the appearance details can be set in the Style menu tab.
Checkout Additional Form
The block of additional information goes at the end of the checkout and lets clients leave notes about the orders. Add it to the checkout page if you want your client to clarify some order details. Using styling tools, you can change the typography, colors, and background for the label, input field, and heading.
Checkout Billing Form
This is a main checkout page widget, which displays a form for the billing data of the client. That form has all the necessary fields to perform billing, so you don’t have to worry about it. Just decide on the design and customize the appearance of the default form.
Checkout Order Review
This widget adds a totals table to your checkout page. It shows the customer short data about the items he/she placed to the cart and is now going to buy. With the totals table on the page, the customer can review the order once again to make sure everything is correct. The best place for this widget is on the top of the page, before the billing data form.
Checkout Shipping Form
If your company can sell items to other countries and provide clients with shipping services, this widget will help you add a shipping data form to the checkout page. It also contains the fields for all the data you need to send the order to the client. In the Style menu tab, you will be able to fit this block to all the others on the page.
When you are done building a checkout page, click the “Publish” button on the bottom of the page.
4 Step — Assign the template to the page
Go to the WooCommerce > Settings > Jet Woo Builder menu tab. Scroll the page down to the Checkout section and tick the Custom Checkout checkbox. In the Checkout Template and Top Checkout Template drop-down menus, select the templates you have created and hit the “Save Changes” button.
Your custom checkout pages are created and assigned to your website. On the frontend, the top template will be shown over the main template on the same page. Now you know how to use JetWooBuilder checkout widgets. Enjoy!
