Fix: Woocommerce checkout button appears twice

The possible problem

if your checkout button appears twice after a Woocommerce plugin update, one problem could be that your form-checkout.php file is not compatible with the latest version.


The fix

form-checkout.php  would then be  located in:

Make a backup of the file, and then insert the file from the woocommerce plugins folder, overwriding your file in the above mentioned location.

The file you need is located here:
