WooCommerce: Display Product Up-sells @ Thank You Page

One of the most important WooCommerce pages, conversion-wise, is the Thank You page. That’s your chance to offer something special to a user that has just turned into a customer and is therefore more likely to purchase again.

We’ve seen how to include a whole WordPress page inside the Thank You page, how to redirect customers to a different Thank You page URL, how to display a custom social media share box on the Thank You page, but in this article I want to expand a little more on the topic and show a list of purchasable products via a shortcode.

The thing is that the Thank You page “does not exist” inside the WordPress pages, so you can’t just add a shortcode in a page. We must do that via a PHP action hook and the do_shortcode() WordPress function. Enjoy!

add_action( 'woocommerce_thankyou', 'bbloomer_upsells_thankyou' );

	echo '<h2>Buy Some More?</h2>';
	echo do_shortcode( '[products ids="186177,186179,186181"]' );

Where to add custom code?

You should place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file and CSS at the bottom of its style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my guide "Should I Add Custom Code Via WP Editor, FTP or Code Snippets?" and my video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything went as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting.

  1. Hi Rodolfo,

    How could we add/change the product id’s from within an admin panel? Is this possible?


    1. Hi Raj, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, 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!
