I would like to change the text in the button of the payment options screen in the MER plugin. Right now it says “Proceed to Finalize Registration”. What is the supported/correct way of editing this text?

This post references that changing that text is done “slightly differently” but never addresses what the correct procedure is.

Hi, please try this filter instead:

It can be added to your child theme’s functions.php file or a site specific plugin.

That works like a charm. Thanks!

Is there a similar filter that can be used to change the text of the labels for the registration steps? Right now the second step is labeled Payment Options, but since I am only going to have one payment method, I’d like it to say Confirm & Pay. I tried changing it in the language file but that didn’t seem to work.

Hi there,

Its actually within the same function, if you look about half way down you’ll find

sprintf( __( 'Proceed to Payment Options', 'event_espresso' ), $checkout->next_step->name() );

You can change the ‘Proceed to Payment Options’ string to whatever you prefer to be output in that case ‘Confirm & Pay’.
