WooCommerce: Edit “Have a Coupon?” Message @ Checkout

I wanted to do something different on my own checkout page, and change the default “Have a Coupon?” message. Thankfully, WooCommerce gives us a filter we can use to accomplish anything we like – such as adding a FontAwesome icon or changing the text string completely!

Where to add custom code?

You should place custom PHP in functions.php and custom CSS in style.css of your child theme: where to place WooCommerce customization?

This code still works, unless you report otherwise. To exclude conflicts, temporarily switch to the Storefront theme, disable all plugins except WooCommerce, and test the snippet again: WooCommerce troubleshooting 101

  1. hi rodolfo,

    updated to woo 5.2.2. in checkout and it`s working fine, but i have a no show in cart?

    1. Sorry this only edits the Checkout message. Cart would require a different code

  2. Is there a way to make this link a button? Rather than a standalone text link? Thanks in advance.

    1. It’s already a link (see the HTML)

  3. seems that it doesn’t work anymore…..
    i am modifying Porto wp theme 4.11 x (not newest version)

    1. Hi Sinisa, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible because your theme might be customizing WooCommerce, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  4. Hi Rodolfo,

    I want to change the default placeholder message for the coupon on the cart page. Currently is says “Coupon Code” and I would like to have it say “Enter Coupon Code Here”. Would this snippet work ?

    1. Hello there, thanks so much for your comment! No, this won’t work I’m afraid. You’ll need to see how the input field is generated and if WooCommerce provides a filter to edit the placeholder (similar to the ones provided for the checkout fields). Unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R

  5. Hi Rodolfo,
    It doesn’t seem to be working for me. I’m sure I’ve added the code correctly. It’s in the Flatsome child theme functions.php file right before the closing ?>

    1. Hey Ken, thanks for your comment! It could be that Flatsome is overriding default WooCommerce messages. Can you test and try with another default theme such as 2017 to see if it works?

  6. Hi,
    is it possible to show coupon text field by default?
    I tried to make some change editing template file but it messed up whole text field

    1. Hello Pritush, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is possible – but unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R
