WooCommerce: Rename “Place Order” Based on Chosen Payment Gateway

We’ve already seen how to rename the “Place Order” button on the WooCommerce Checkout page, but today I want to find a way to rename it dynamically and conditionally i.e. based on the payment gateway that is selected while checking out.

The snippet requires the payment gateway “ID” – here’s a quick tut in case you don’t know how to retrieve that: How to Find WooCommerce Payment Gateway ID

Other than that, it’s pretty simple logic. Enjoy!

With the snippet below, once “Bank Transfer” (bacs) is selected, the “Place Order” button becomes “View Bank Details”. If I had a second payment gateway, such as COD, I could have also modified the label, and this would have changed instantly upon COD select.

add_filter( 'woocommerce_available_payment_gateways', 'bbloomer_rename_place_order_button' );

function bbloomer_rename_place_order_button( $gateways ) {
    if ( $gateways['bacs'] ) {
        $gateways['bacs']->order_button_text = 'View Bank Details';
    } elseif ( $gateways['cod'] ) {
        $gateways['cod']->order_button_text = 'Confirm Cash on Delivery';
    } 
    return $gateways;
}

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete "?>" if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme 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 free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked 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 on PHP 7.3.
