Be sure and modify the Shopping Cart title field as the default is “Your Shopping Cart” which may not be appropriate for your production site. One interesting consistency with plugins developed by Tips & Tricks HQ is the double use of fields as both text and image fields. As an example in this plugin, you can customize what is displayed when the cart is empty. You can place text in that field, or the URL of an image to represent an empty cart. Same for the “add to cart” button. .
One of the many benefits of WooCommerce is that it gives us pre-designed and coded templates to work with. The problem is that those template files are located in the plugin folder. And if the plugin updates in the future (which it most certainly will), any changes we make to the template will get lost. Since directly editing plugin files is a big ol’ no-no in WordPress, WooCommerce lets us modify the files by making copies of them that go in the theme folder. That will work as long as we do this in our functions.php or functionality plugin somewhere:

This article was first published in 2011 when we picked 42 well-known online stores to analyze them and bring you the statistics on their cart usability. But times change and the approach to shopping cart design has changed too. So, we decided to visit the same online stores once again to check the changes made to their shopping cart pages for the past 4 years. Surprisingly, most of the pages became simpler and more minimalist. You won't see arrows and additional icons even on the buttons of the largest eCommerce stores, and a laconic "Checkout" is now used more often. Today's examples illustrate that online retailers mostly: highlight the checkout button with color (26 times); sometimes they embed visually complementary arrows (4 times); or add shopping cart icons (1 time) to the textual call-to-action. in the majority of cases we see word 'checkout' (24 times); other popular words are 'proceed to checkout' (10 times); 'proceed to purchase' (2 times); 'proceed with your order' (1 times); 'go to checkout' (1 time); ‘proceed’ (2 times); ‘check out now’ (2 times); ‘begin checkout’ (1 time).
