If you’ve ever tried to build WooCommerce stores, you know just how complicated it is to customize the layout of these types of websites.
Now, for the first time, we are proud to introduce our own solution for building online shops in WordPress using Elementor.
Important Update: If you want a quick guide to get you started with Elementor & WooCommerce, check out this detailed tutorial.
Old Way vs the Elementor Way
In the past, web designers had two ways of creating a custom-designed WooCommerce store:
Coding Theme PHP files. Doing this for WC is way more complicated than WordPress theme customization, given the much more complex structure of WC templates.
Coding WooCommerce’s hooks. This was done through adding elements before or after the relevant hooks, an extremely limited process, also prone to bugs and conflicts.
Both ways were costly, time consuming, and involved coordinating between complex developer and designer tasks.
Introducing WooCommerce Builder.
With Elementor WooCommerce Builder, you reach a pixel perfect custom-designed store, but skip over the hand-coding parts. This new streamlined and visual process will take out most of the hassle that professionals face when building store on WordPress. Designers will complete ecommerce projects faster and deliver a much more stable and flexible store.
The first version of WC builder deals with the most fundamental areas of WC:
- Single Product Template – For creating the perfect WooCommerce product pages that get more sales.
- Product Archive Template – For optimizing the look and feel of pages that showcase your products.
In the future, we will expand the WC builder to cover every area of the online shop.
