Upon installation, WooCommerce creates the following new pages via the Setup Wizard:
- Shop – No content required.
- Cart – Contains [woocommerce_cart] shortcode and shows the cart contents
- Checkout – Contains [woocommerce_checkout] shortcode and shows information such as shipping and payment options
- My Account – Contains [woocommerce_my_account] shortcode and shows each customer information related to their account, orders, etc.
If you skipped the Setup Wizard or want to install missing WooCommerce pages, go to WooCommerce > Status > Tools and use the page installer tool.
If you set up new pages yourself, or want to change what pages are used for things like cart and checkout, you need to tell WooCommerce which pages to use.
To tell WooCommerce what pages to use for Cart, Checkout, My Account, and Terms and Conditions, go to WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced.
To tell WooCommerce what pages to use for the Shop page go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products.
The Shop page is a placeholder for a post type archive for products. It may render differently than other pages in your install.
If you’re using SEO plugins, they may include settings specific to custom post type archives, and these settings are what you should be using to control the shop page.
This page should be compatible with all WordPress themes, even ones not made specifically for WooCommerce, as of version 3.3x. Should you be using a custom/child theme or a version of WooCommerce prior to 3.3x, or experiencing a compatibility issue, go to: Third-party/custom theme compatibility.
It results in incorrect redirects and broken payment gateway functionality. WooCommerce 3.7 prevents this from happening.
