How to Create a WooCommerce Coming Soon Page

Looking to create a WooCommerce coming soon page for your website? Want to let your customers know that you’ll be adding new products or offers very soon? We have the perfect guide for you.

We all know that both WooCommerce and WordPress are very flexible website platforms to develop an eCommerce store. Therefore, they can also be easily configured to create a coming soon page for your website. But let’s look at why you might need to add a coming soon page to WooCommerce before we move along with the process.

Why Create a Coming Soon Page in WooCommerce?

A coming soon page can be very essential if you want to promote your products or offers before you publish them officially on your website. Whether it’s a new page or a category for similar items or just a specific product, promoting them in advance is always better. It brings a sense of curiosity in your customers and would draw them to keep checking your website until the official result is finally published.

But when you promote them, you need to make sure that they are visually appealing to get your audiences’ attention as well. You can always put just a few details on your normal product page to announce a new unreleased product. But this won’t do you any good on the visual aspect.

Hence, what you can do is create a particular coming soon page for these products or offers. The new unreleased items can even be mentioned on the home page or shop page just like the featured products. Then, all you have to do is create a WooCommerce coming soon page and link it to them.

How to create a WooCommerce Coming Soon Page?

The best way to create a WooCommerce coming soon page is by using a plugin. Plugins in WooCommerce and WordPress help increase the functionality of your website. Similarly, there are a number of plugins that can help you add a coming soon page in your WooCommerce store too. Here are some of the most popular ones:

Now, you will be able to see all the available page templates of the plugin. Since we have to create a WooCommerce coming soon page, click on the Coming Soon tab.

Then, you will have to select a template for your coming soon page. There are a number of templates that you can choose from. But as you can see, there are very limited options for the free version.

You can get some more templates by subscribing to their newsletter. But to access all the templates, you must use the premium version of the plugin. For now, we will just select a free template.

3. Edit the Coming Soon Page for your WooCommerce Store

Finally, you’ll proceed to the feature-rich drag and drop builder of the plugin. You can fully customize the coming soon page from here. It’s fairly similar and easy to use just like some of the popular page builders like Divi, Elementor, Beaver Builder, and so on.

3.1. Change the Background

Let’s start with the background image. Click on any free area of the background and you will be presented with the background options at the left side of your screen. You can adjust the background colors and images from here.

Just select the background color or the background image that you want to add for your coming soon page. If you want to change the background image, you can use your own image or even the stock images.

Then, adjust the position and section width of the background of the coming soon page.

3.2. Edit the Contents of the Page

You can also change the entire content of the page like the texts and images from the drag and drop builder. Just click on the content you want to edit. For example, if we click on the headline, you can edit it according to your coming soon page.

If you want to customize your coming soon page some more, you can also add some more advanced blocks and widgets. But in the advanced blocks, only the giveaway, contact form, and custom HTML options are available in the free version. Whereas, all the rest of the blocks and widgets are available in the premium version.

But if you open the Connect tab, you can find some more options for email marketing here. Unfortunately, they are also available in just the premium version. However, Google Analytics can be used for free for your coming soon page.

3.4. Coming Soon Page Settings

Finally, you can see a few more options in the Page Settings tab. Here, you can change the page title and URL once again in the General settings. The coming soon page can also be set to draft or published from here itself. So you don’t have to go to the default WordPress page editor to again customize it more.

Once the original product, offer, or content that you wish to add from the coming soon page is added to its original page, you can just move the current coming soon page to draft.

You also get the option to put your coming soon page in Isolation mode. If this is activated, other plugins like SEO and analytics pages won’t function on the coming soon page.

Lastly, you can also add a Powered by SeedProd link along with the affiliate link. So if you are affiliated with SeedProd, this can be a nice way to monetize even your coming soon page.
