Why You Should Replace The Default Thank You Page In WooCommerce?
Directing your buyers to the default thank you page is unwise if your goal is to retain your buyers as loyal customers.
Your default order confirmation page simply discloses order details, billing/shipping address, and the total amount spent. It doesn’t leave a lasting impression.
