How to merge Woocommerce cart and checkout page?

I had a customer who needed to show Woocommerce cart and checkout page on the same page. So, if you need a similar solution then in this post I’m going to show you how to merge Woocommerce cart and checkout page.

Before you take a look at the code snippets I’m using it would be wise to see the video here below. This way it’ll be a bit easier to understand what you should do.

And this is what you’ll going to accomplish.

How to merge Woocommerce cart and checkout page?

Step 1: Merge Woocommerce cart and checkout page

In this step we’re going to add a Woocommerce cart table above the checkout table Thus, grab this code here below and add it inside your child theme’s functions.php file or better yet, use Code Snippets plugin for it. There is nothing to configure, just paste it as it is.

// 1. Add Woocommerce cart page on the checkout page

add_action( 'woocommerce_before_checkout_form', 'add_cart_on_checkout', 5 );
 
function add_cart_on_checkout() {
 if ( is_wc_endpoint_url( 'order-received' ) ) return;
 echo do_shortcode('[woocommerce_cart]'); // Woocommerce cart page shortcode
}

Step 2: Redirect Woocommerce cart page to checkout page

This part is optional and use it if you don’t want the “View cart” buttons to direct your users to cart page. Also, use it if you don’t want your users to access Woocommerce cart page directly.

So, grab this code and add it to you functions.php file or Code Snippets code box. Pay attention that “cart” and “/checkout/” parts are your cart and checkout pages slugs. If you have any other slugs (karte or kassa for example) then change them accordingly.

// 2. Redirect cart page to checkout
add_action( 'template_redirect', function() {
  
// Replace "cart"  and "checkout" with cart and checkout page slug if needed
    if ( is_page( 'cart' ) ) {
        wp_redirect( '/checkout/' );
        die();
    }
} );

Step 3: Redirect empty Woocommerce checkout page to shop page

Now, this part is needed only if you added a redirection from Woocommerce cart page to checkout page in the step 2. If you didn’t do it then you can skip this part.

BUT if you are redirecting your cart page then this part is crucial because otherwise you will end up with “Too many redirects” error on your checkout page after deleting the products from cart.

Take a look at the “shop” slug inside the code. Replace it with your own shop page slug.

// Redirect to home url from empty Woocommerce checkout page

add_action( 'template_redirect', 'redirect_empty_checkout' );
 
function redirect_empty_checkout() {
    if ( is_checkout() && 0 == WC()->cart->get_cart_contents_count() && ! is_wc_endpoint_url( 'order-pay' ) && ! is_wc_endpoint_url( 'order-received' ) ) {
   wp_safe_redirect( get_permalink( wc_get_page_id( 'shop' ) ) ); 
        exit;
    }
}

Alternative option: Show “Return to shop” button in empty checkout page

If you don’t want to redirect your customer to the shop page and want to show “Return to shop” button instead, then skip the previous snippet and use this one here instead.

add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_redirect_empty_cart', '__return_false' );
add_filter( 'woocommerce_checkout_update_order_review_expired', '__return_false' );

Step 4: Customize Woocommerce checkout page

This part here is again optional. I will do that because I am using a Blocksy theme and it shows me the cart table in a 2/3 with. I would like to show it in a full with. So, all these CSS snippets go to the Customizer >> Additional CSS and applies only for Blocksy theme.

Blocksy theme

SAVE 10% COUPON: WPSH10

Kadence theme

SAVE 10% COUPON: SIMPLEHACKS

This will make the cart form full width.

@media only screen and (min-width: 1000px) {
.ct-cart-form {
    grid-template-columns: 1fr;
}

Hide Woocommerce coupon toggle from checkout page

Both cart table and checkout table have their own coupon code box. Since I need only one of them I’ll hide checkout page coupon toggle (“Have a coupon? Click here to enter your code”)

.woocommerce-form-coupon-toggle
{
    display: none;
}

This should work with every decent theme.

Customize Woocommerce checkout order review table

Now I’ll add a background to the Woocommerce order review table, add some spacing between this and cart table and make some other adjustments. All classes with ct- is for Blocksy theme only. Two last ones should work with every theme.

/* Blocksy theme order review table background and border */
.ct-order-review {
	background: #fbfbfb;
	border: 2px dashed #ebebeb;
}
.ct-cart-form {
	margin-bottom: 2em;
	border-bottom: 1px solid #ebebeb;
}

/* Payment methods background + radio and checkbox customization */
.payment_methods>li:not(.woocommerce-notice),
.woocommerce-form__input[type="checkbox"]{
    background: #fff;
}
/* Payment methods background */
.woocommerce-shipping-totals input[type="radio"] {
  border: 1px solid #000;
	background: #fff;
}

To sum up: It is easy to add Woocommerce cart page to checkout page

As you saw it is fairly easy to merge Woocommerce cart page and checkout page. It will most likely take you 5-10 minutes to accomplish all that.

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:

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)
