Customizing Titles in Magento One-Page Checkout

July 21, 2011

Magento LogoTo customize titles / label values i.e. “Shipping Information” or “Zip Code” in Magento Onepage Checkout, open app/locale/en_US/Mage_Checkout.csv.  This file lists the various labels used for onepage checkout in column A and their values in column B.

To change a value, simply locate the value that you want to change in column A and edit the text in column B to the text that you would like to be displayed for this label during checkout.

For instance, to edit the Shipping Information label, find “Shipping Information”,”Shipping Information” and replace with “Shipping Information”,”Your title”.

Remember to clear your cache in the Magento Admin Panel and then test the checkout to verify that the values for the titles / labels are displaying.

Thank you very much. I’m slowly getting to grips with Magento and found this really helpful.
Changing the code is easier than I thought once I know where to look :)

You’re welcome, glad you found it to be of assistance. You’re right — the code can be daunting at first, but once you get in there it usually starts coming together and making sense.

Great, thanks. One question. How does one remove the “page title” from just above step 1, where it reads “Checkout”.

Thanks! Tried to do it in billing.phtml and would not change :) .

Hi Tony, why are you trying to edit billing.phtml? You want to be editing app/locale/en_US/Mage_Checkout.csv to customize checkout titles.

Hi there, I’m looking to reorder some fields on my one page checkout page. Can anyone point me to where I would find the fields layout file? Many thanks for the help, Tyler…

Hi Tyler, check out /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/checkout. You should be able to take care of things there. Make sure you copy the files to your custom template before editing.

Hello,

Anyone know which file in magento for editing shipping method descriptions?, e.g. USPS, UPS, etc. I’d like to add custom text next to “UPS Ground” or “Priority Mail” which appear in checkout and shipping estimator

Thank you.
