How to Change the WooCommerce Cross-Sell Cart Text

WooCommerce logo

WooCommerce offers the ability to display cross-sells, which “are products that you promote in the cart, based on the current product.”

Here’s an example from our test site:

Sample WooCommerce cross-sell text

You can change this text without directly editing a template file. There’s no specific hook to do so (at least as of this writing), but you can use the general gettext filter. Here’s how:

add_filter( 'gettext', 'custom_related_products_text' ) );

function custom_related_products_text( $translated_text, $text, $domain ) {

  if ( $translated_text == 'You may be interested in…' && $domain == 'woocommerce' ) {
    $translated_text = 'Hey, check this out!';
  }
   
  return $translated_text;
}

Here’s how that modified text would look:

Sample WooCommerce cross-sell text

This hook works by searching for the specific text on the page — in this case, “You may be interested in…” — and then replacing it. The challenge with this approach is that WooCommerce may change their default cross-sell text. If that happens, you’ll need to modify the string you’re searching for. Otherwise, the hook won’t work.

Hopefully WooCommerce will add a hook specifically intended for this purpose. If and when that happens, we’ll update this post.
