Are you comparing Woocommerce and Shopify in search of a Woocommerce single page checkout?
If so, you came to the right place. Or if you are just investigating Woocommerce’s one page checkout functionality, you are in luck.
This functionality comes built in for free with Woocommerce, it’s actually the standard Woocommerce checkout page.
Woocommerce single page checkout
One of the main reasons why I’m so pro Woocommerce is the simple one page checkout.
If there’s one thing that annoys me about Shopify, it’s the clunky as anything 5 page checkout system that is going to be enough to drive away all but the most determined new customers.
Not ideal for conversions and making your store easy to use.
In this simple tutorial I will show you how to setup the Woocommerce checkout page and what the single page checkout looks like.
Setting up the Woocommerce checkout page
Setting up the Woocommerce checkout page is easy. Lots of Woocommerce themes come with demo data and the setup is done for you, but if you need to set it up yourself follow these steps:
- Access your WordPress dashboard
- Create a new page
- Insert a row and text block
- Insert this shortcode into the text block – woocommerce_checkout (add [ ] around it)
- Publish the page
This page is now your new checkout page.
Woocommerce works by using simple 1 line shortcodes to embed the core Woocommerce pages on your website:
Viewing your Woocommerce single page checkout
Add some stuff to your cart and navigate over to the checkout page.

Nice and sleek huh?
