Terms and Conditions Checkbox in Checkout
I know that for those who just installed WooCommerce it could be not so obvious where to find certain settings and how to manage them. Usually you can find only advanced coding tutorials on my blog, but I decided to make an exclusion.
Here is how the terms and conditions checkbox is displayed on my WooCommerce checkout page:
In this tutorial I am going to show you how to hide or remove it and how to change the text.
By the way, if you are trying to change “Place order” button text, this tutorial is for you.

It is super simple, all you need to do is to go to WooCommerce Settings > Advanced and set a page as your “Terms and Conditions” page. Example:
How to Change Terms and Conditions Checkbox Text
This one is a little tricky. I didn’t find anything in WooCommerce settings which allows to change that text. And of course we are not going to use code for that. But you can change that text in Customizer!
And I will tell you more – everything we configured before you can also configure in Customizer! And here is step by step how to do it:
- In WordPress dashboard go to Appearance > Customize
- Then go to WooCommerce and then to Checkout:
You can also use HTML tags if you want to add your custom link to the “Terms and Conditions” text.

I thought I go crazy because I did not find the text for the terms and conditions in WooCommerce :-) Finally I found your hint to go to Appearance > Customize – THANKS THANKS THANKS!
You’re welcome! :)
Thank you so much for this blog!!! What a help!! I could not find it, so I am so happy now.
Thanks for your help – I was on loads of other sites trying to figure out how to get rid of the terms and conditions box and your tip to customise appearance worked perfectly – thanks again!
It was really helpful, thank you!
Thank you for sharing! I had a client ask where you can view that a customer actually accepted the terms. I know a customer can’t checkout without doing so, but is the value that they”checked the checkbox” stored in the user metadata somewhere?
I think it doesn’t stored anywhere.
