Add a ‘Continue Shopping’ Button to Woo Commerce Checkout and Cart Page

By default WooCommerce Cart page does not have a ‘Continue Shopping’ or ‘Return to Store’ button. However if you go to the cart page when the cart is empty, there is a  ‘Return to Store’ button.

We just need to add this button code to the cart page when the cart has items.


add_action('woocommerce_cart_actions', function() {
  <a class="button wc-backward" href="<?php echo esc_url( apply_filters( 'woocommerce_return_to_shop_redirect', wc_get_page_permalink( 'shop' ) ) ); ?>"> <?php _e( 'Return to shop', 'woocommerce' ) ?> </a>

      You’ll need to add it to your theme’s functions.php file
