WooCommerce login and registration is an important part of any WooCommerce online store. It helps you manage and control your data easier when you run a WooCommerce store.

But have you already known how to customize WooCommerce login page and registration? This problem is exactly what we will discuss in this article.

Nevertheless, the default WooCommerce login page and registration is quite limited. So we will also introduce you to what you can do beyond everything WooCommerce delivers.

Default WooCommerce Customer Login Options

WooCommerce already has some options for customers to login and register. The most noticeable sign is the “Account” page. Here, you can see the login and registration form.

Besides, the checkout page may contain a WooCommerce login form, depending on your setup. The main difference here is the inline form. Hence, when you click on the “Log In” button, the form will show up on the checkout page without directing users to another page.

That is an excellent solution since users can make a purchase faster and easier.

Suppose you want to custom WooCommerce registration form and login form to your liking. In that case, WooCommerce does not provide any options for it.

Why do You Need to Custom WooCommerce Login Page and Registration?

WooCommerce Separate Login and Registration Pages

As I said before, both the WooCommerce login and registration form are displayed on the same page by default. Thus, you do not have an option to separate them if you prefer. That means you need a third-party solution to solve this problem.

Limited Field Options

The default WooCommerce login page and registration has all the fields for a user to create an account.

However, suppose you need to add and display other sections like drop-down menus, checkboxes, or billing and shipping address wherever. In that case, WooCommerce does not give you a choice.

Design Limitations

You may see that the WooCommerce login page and registration design is a little boring and dull.

Unfortunately, WooCommerce also does not allow you to change it if that is the case. In other words, you can not change the colors, formats, text, and borders except using plugins or code.

How to Customize WooCommerce Login Page and Registration?

Method 1: Customize WooCommerce Login Page and Registration Using Shortcode

You probably already know that the shortcode [woocommerce_my_account] has both login and registration combined. But this might not be the way you want it to be.

Suppose you want to create a popup that shows only a registration form for a specific page. In that case, using the shortcode alone, you can not achieve that purpose since it will also contain the login form. That is when you need to create your own WooCommerce login shortcode.

Before you start, you should know that the [woocommerce_my_account] shortcode is very important. And you must keep it on the My Account page at all costs.

We mean if you want to keep the ‘My Account’ dashboard and the login form has the same URL, you can keep using [woocommerce_my_account] for that, along with the new shortcodes.

If you want the Sign in and My Account page separate from the Registration page, you will need to apply both shortcodes we have shown below:

  • [woocommerce_my_account] on the Login / My Account Page;
  • [wc_reg_your_form] on the WooCommerce Register Page.

If you want a separate Sign In, Sign Up, and My Account page, you need the following three shortcodes:

  • [woocommerce_my_account] on the My Account Page;
  • [wc_login_your_form] on the Login Page;
  • [wc_reg_your_form] on the Register Page.

In either case, you need to disable “Allow customers to create an account on the ‘My Account’ page” in the WooCommerce Setting page:

customize WooCommerce login page with shortcodes

Step 1: Separate WooCommerce Registration Form

Place the WooCommerce register form shortcode [wc_reg_your_form] in a brand new Registration page. When you have done it, the registration form should appear.

add_shortcode( 'wc_reg_your_form', 'your_separate_registration_form' );
    
function your_separate_registration_form() {
   if ( is_admin() ) return;
   if ( is_user_logged_in() ) return;
   ob_start();
   do_action( 'woocommerce_before_customer_login_form' );
   ?>
      <form method="post" class="woocommerce-form woocommerce-form-register register" <?php do_action( 'woocommerce_register_form_tag' ); ?> >
         <?php do_action( 'woocommerce_register_form_start' ); ?>
         <?php if ( 'no' === get_option( 'woocommerce_registration_generate_username' ) ) : ?>
            <p class="woocommerce-form-row woocommerce-form-row--wide form-row form-row-wide">
               <label for="reg_username"><?php esc_html_e( 'Username', 'woocommerce' ); ?> <span class="required">*</span></label>
               <input type="text" class="woocommerce-Input woocommerce-Input--text input-text" name="username" id="reg_username" autocomplete="username" value="<?php echo ( ! empty( $_POST['username'] ) ) ? esc_attr( wp_unslash( $_POST['username'] ) ) : ''; ?>" /><?php // @codingStandardsIgnoreLine ?>
            </p>
         <?php endif; ?>
         <p class="woocommerce-form-row woocommerce-form-row--wide form-row form-row-wide">
            <label for="reg_email"><?php esc_html_e( 'Email address', 'woocommerce' ); ?> <span class="required">*</span></label>
            <input type="email" class="woocommerce-Input woocommerce-Input--text input-text" name="email" id="reg_email" autocomplete="email" value="<?php echo ( ! empty( $_POST['email'] ) ) ? esc_attr( wp_unslash( $_POST['email'] ) ) : ''; ?>" /><?php // @codingStandardsIgnoreLine ?>
         </p>
         <?php if ( 'no' === get_option( 'woocommerce_registration_generate_password' ) ) : ?>
            <p class="woocommerce-form-row woocommerce-form-row--wide form-row form-row-wide">
               <label for="reg_password"><?php esc_html_e( 'Password', 'woocommerce' ); ?> <span class="required">*</span></label>
               <input type="password" class="woocommerce-Input woocommerce-Input--text input-text" name="password" id="reg_password" autocomplete="new-password" />
            </p>
 
         <?php else : ?>
            <p><?php esc_html_e( 'A password will be sent to your email address.', 'woocommerce' ); ?></p>
         <?php endif; ?>
         <?php do_action( 'woocommerce_register_form' ); ?>
         <p class="woocommerce-FormRow form-row">
            <?php wp_nonce_field( 'woocommerce-register', 'woocommerce-register-nonce' ); ?>
            <button type="submit" class="woocommerce-Button woocommerce-button button woocommerce-form-register__submit" name="register" value="<?php esc_attr_e( 'Register', 'woocommerce' ); ?>"><?php esc_html_e( 'Register', 'woocommerce' ); ?></button>
         </p>
         <?php do_action( 'woocommerce_register_form_end' ); ?>
      </form>
   <?php 
   return ob_get_clean();
}

Step 2: WooCommerce separate login page and registration page

Before doing this, please check the information above as you may not need to use this shortcode. The [woocommerce_my_account] shortcode may be enough. In other words, you do not need a WooCommerce login form shortcode.

If not, add this shortcode [wc_login_your_form] to a brand new WooCommerce custom login page.

add_shortcode( 'wc_login_your_form', 'your_separate_login_form' );
function your_separate_login_form() {
   if ( is_admin() ) return;
   if ( is_user_logged_in() ) return; 
   ob_start();
   woocommerce_login_form( array( 'redirect' => '#' ) );
   return ob_get_clean();
}

Those are everything you need to separate WooCommerce Sign In and WooCommerce sign up page.

Method 2: Customize WooCommerce Login Page and Registration Using a Plugin

Step 1: Installation

These fields can be easily added because of the easy-to-use drag and drop feature.

When you are done with customizing the form, you need to hit the Create Form button to complete the process.

Step 3: Replace the default WooCommerce Login Registration Pages

After you have created a new login or WooCommerce custom registration form, you will need to replace the default WooCommerce form with it.

All you need to do is go to ‘WooCommerce’ -> ‘Settings’, then open the ‘Account and Privacy’ tab. You will see a checkbox that says, “Allow customers to create an account on the ‘My Account’ page“. Check it and click Save changes.

Your custom WooCommerce login and user registration form should be displayed at this moment.

Step 4: Separate WooCommerce Login and Registration Page

By default, both the WooCommerce login and registration forms are displayed on the same page. Suppose you want to show them on different pages. In that case, create new separate pages for the login and registration pages.

To display the login page separately, place the shortcode below on the page you want to show it. You may also need to redirect to the link of the account page after the users log in. Just add the link of the page at the redirect_url parameter and then publish the page.

[user_registration_my-account redirect_url=”account page link”]

To separate the registration page, you need to get the shortcode of the WooCommerce Registration that you created by going to User Registration > User Registration in your WordPress dashboard.
