To change the product 'placeholder' picture add this to your child theme's functions.php and use image you want:
// change the product 'placeholder' picture
add_filter('woocommerce_placeholder_img_src', 'yourprefix_placeholder_img_src');
function yourprefix_placeholder_img_src( $placeholder_img ){
	//Place your image in images subfolder of your child theme
	//$placeholder_img = get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/images/your_placeholder.png';
	// If you don't have access to ftp
	$placeholder_img = "here path to your uploaded image";

	return $placeholder_img;
}

Open in new window

To change the product 'sale flash' you can use CSS to style it e.g.:
.woocommerce span.onsale,
.woocommerce-page span.onsale {
	border-radius: 50%;
	line-height: 28px;
	min-height: 28px;
	min-width: 28px;
}

Open in new window

Add that to your child theme's style.css

Difficult, but that is the correct answer. I will just tell client that option costs a long time and to not focus on it.

Thanks.
