How to Show Product Already in Cart button in Woocommerce?

You just need to grab a code snippet shown below and paste it to your functions.php file or better yet, use Code Snippets plugin. This allows you to add your own custom snippets whithoout losing them after themes updates.

Step 1: Install Code Snippets plugin

You can download it here. After installing and activating it you’ll see the Snippets menu on the left. Click on Add new link.

Step 2: Insert the code

Now, copy the code here below and paste it to the Code Snippets code box. Choose “Only run on site front-end” and press on “Save changes and activate button”.

// Change button for single products
add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_single_add_to_cart_text', 'already_in_cart_single_product' );
function already_in_cart_single_product( $label ) {
   foreach( WC()->cart->get_cart() as $cart_item_key => $values ) {
      $product = $values['data'];
      if( get_the_ID() == $product->get_id() ) {
         $label = __('Product already in Cart. Add again?', 'woocommerce');
   return $label;
// Change button for archive page products
add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_add_to_cart_text', 'already_in_cart_archive_product', 99, 2 );
function already_in_cart_archive_product( $label, $product ) {
   if ( $product->get_type() == 'simple' && $product->is_purchasable() && $product->is_in_stock() ) {
      foreach( WC()->cart->get_cart() as $cart_item_key => $values ) {
         $_product = $values['data'];
         if( get_the_ID() == $_product->get_id() ) {
            $label = __('Product already in Cart. Add again?', 'woocommerce');
   return $label;

Next, go to the shop and single product page and verify whether everything works as it should. If everything is OK then the end result should look like this.

Useful Tips

Here are some of my favorite Wordpress tools

Thank you for reading this article. I hope you found it helpful as you build your own websites and e-commerce sites. Here are some tools I use as a Wordpress developer and enthusiast that I hope you’ll also find helpful.

These are affiliate links, so if you do decide to use any of them, I’ll earn a commission and this helps me create these tutorials and make Youtube videos. But in all honesty, these are the exact tools that I use and recommend to everyone, even my friends and family.

Themes: For the last couple of years I have two go-to themes which I use for every kind of projects. Those two themes are Blocksy theme and Kadence Theme. On this site and my Youtube channel you’ll see a lot of tutorials I have made about them. If you would like to get a 10% discount for both of them then:

Code Snippets manager: WPCodeBox allows you to add code snippets to your site. Also, it allows you to build and manage your WordPress Code Snippets library in the cloud. You can grab it with the 20% discount here (SAVE 20% Coupon: WPSH20).

Contact forms: There are hundreds of contact forms out there but Fluent Forms is the one I like the most. If you need a 20% discount then use this link (save 20% coupon is WPSH20).

Gutenberg add-ons: If I need a good Gutenberg blocks add-on then Kadence Blocks is the one I have used the most. You’ll get 10% discount with the coupon SIMPLEHACKS here.

Website migration: While building a website you probably need a good plugin that can help you with the migration, backups, restoration and staging sites. Well, WpVivid is the one I have used for the last couple of years. If you use this link along with the WPSH20 coupon you’ll get 20% discount.

Woocommerce extensions: There are a bunch of Woocommerce extensions that I really like but the one that stands really out is Advanced Dynamic Pricing. Once again, you’ll get a 20% discount if you use this link here (save 20% coupon is WPSH20)

Web Hosting: For getting started, I really like A2 Hosting. They have the dedicated and fast Wordpress hostinh and support has also been fast and responsive. If you’re more tech savvy and want to have a really fast managed cloud hosting then I recommend Cloudways. (Btw, this site is hosted in Cloudways.)
