How can you redirect customers to a beautifully looking, custom, product-specific thank you page?

Thankfully you can add some PHP code to your functions.php and define a redirect to a custom URL (as opposed to the default order-received endpoint). This is a great way for you to add specific up-sells, social media share and other information that could help you convert additional sales.

“Redirection won’t work for me?”

I was recently working on a client’s website and used the snippet above – nothing was working. I even tried to use a redirection plugin (Simple 301 Redirects), but that didn’t work either.

Here’s what I found out: while editing the WooCommerce Endpoints settings, he left a blank space between “Order” and “Received” (see image below, text is translated badly by Google from Danish to English).

That was it!

“I don’t code – is there a trustworthy plugin for that?”

As many readers would love to code but don’t feel 100% confident with it, I decided to look for a reliable plugin that achieves the same result.

In this case, I recommend the YITH Custom Thank You Page for WooCommerce plugin. On top of picking your custom redirect URL, you can also define a different thank you page by category/product, show/hide default information, enable social sharing, display upsells and much more.

But in case you wish to code, keep reading 🙂
