Replace the cart

The WooCommerce shopping cart can be completely replaced with an order form, for websites that prefer to offer only order forms. Just a few settings are required, and some custom steps.

Step 1: install WooCommerce and Order Form for WooCommerce

Install the WooCommerce and Order Form for WooCommerce plugins. However, when WooCommerce asks you to install WooCommerce pages, just skip that step by clicking the “Skip setup” button.

Step 2: set up your products in WooCommerce

You can set up products in WooCommerce as normal; nothing changes here.

Step 3: create a page for your checkout

Add a page for your website, and give it a shortcode for the WooCommerce checkout.

Step 5: set up the WooCommerce checkout page
