Elementor: Build an eCommerce Store With Zero Code

The first step is adding Elementor to lớn your WordPress website. 

The core Elementor plugin is không tính phí to tải về và provides access khổng lồ more than 40 widgets and over 30 templates. However, since we’re working with WooCommerce, you’ll need to lớn invest in an Elementor Pro subscription. 

Unlike the không lấy phí version of Elementor, Elementor Pro provides a dedicated WooCommerce Builder, plus some important eCommerce-themed widgets such as Add lớn Cart, Product Rating, and Related Products.

If you want to stiông chồng with the free Elementor plugin, then this tutorial will help you master the Elementor user interface and the core workflows you’ll need lớn build beautifully designed pages, websites, blogs, & online stores. However, you will need an Elementor Pro subscription in order lớn complete all sections of this tutorial.

WooCommerce: How khổng lồ Install WordPress’s Free eCommerce Plugin

If you haven’t already added the miễn phí WooCommerce plugin lớn your trang web, then now’s your chance:

Log in lớn your WordPress website.Navigate lớn Plugins > Add New.Search for WooCommerce.

You’ll now be prompted to activate the Jetpack and WooCommerce Services plugin. This plugin will help protect your website against brute force attacks và can also deliver a performance boost, so it’s recommended that you activate Jetpachồng unless you have a specific reason not to lớn.

Stoông xã Those Shelves: Creating Your First WooCommerce Product

In this tutorial, we’ll be creating various layouts, so it’s important you thử nghiệm these layouts as you’re building them.

If you already have sầu a catalog of WooCommerce products, then you can use these products to see exactly how your store will look once it’s fully stocked. However, if you’re building your very first store, then I’d recommkết thúc taking a few minutes lớn create a handful of products that you can use in your layouts.

To create a product, select Products > Add New from WordPress’s left-hvà menu. 

You can now open the Product data dropdown & specify the kind of product that you want lớn create: 

Simple product. This is any product that’s shipped & has no options. Grouped Product. This is a collection of related products that all fall inlớn the simple sản phẩm category. Variable product. This is a product that has variations, such as a jacket that’s available in different sizes and colors. 

For the purposes of this tutorial, I’ll be creating a Simple Product:

Give your sản phẩm a name and write a short description. 

You can now assign this sản phẩm khổng lồ a product category. For example, if you’re creating a clothing store, then your categories might include Hoodies & SweatshirtsOccasionwear, và Shoes và Boots. Assuming that you want khổng lồ create a new category, scroll to lớn the Product categories section & select Add new category.

*
Give sầu your category a name, và then cliông xã Add new category.In the Product categories section, select the category that you just created.

Already know all the categories that you want to feature on your website? You can implement all of these categories in advance by repeating the above steps. You may also want to lớn separate your categories into parent & child categories. For example, I’m creating a Kitchen parent category & assigning it the following child categories: Bar stools, Dining chairs, and Kitchen stools.

*
In Product tags, enter all the tags that you want to use, and then clichồng Add.Next, add a featured image by scrolling to lớn Product Image và then selecting Set product image.Choose the image that best represents your product. 

Do you have sầu multiple images that you want to lớn use for this particular product? You can create a hàng hóa gallery by scrolling to lớn the Product gallery section, selecting Add product gallery images, & choosing the images that you want lớn use. 

In the Product Data section, make sure General is selected.
*
In Regular price, enter how much this product should cost. Next, select the Inventory tab. In SKU, enter this product’s Stoông xã Keeping Unit, which is the number you’ll use to lớn track this hàng hóa in your inventory. Select the Enable stoông chồng management at hàng hóa level checkbox.

In Stoông chồng quantity, enter the number of units that you currently have sầu in stoông chồng. WooCommerce can gmail you when you’re running low on stoông chồng. If you want lớn receive these low stoông xã notifications, then enter the desired value into lớn Low stoông chồng threshold. You’ll now receive an gmail as soon as your stoông chồng reaches this threshold. In the left-h& thực đơn, select Shipping.In Weight, enter this product’s weight. In Dimensions, enter the product’s length, width, và height. When you’re happy with the information you’ve sầu entered, cliông xã Publish.

To see the product you’ve just created, select View Product.

*

Rinse & repeat to create multiple products. To really put your layouts lớn the chạy thử, you should try khổng lồ create a variety of products, spanning multiple categories. 

Organize Your Store With Product Categories

After creating all your products, it’s worth taking a few minutes to lớn reviews your hàng hóa categories.

By taking stoông chồng of all the categories you"ve sầu created, you can identify any categories that need grouping into a parent category, or you might realize that you’ve sầu forgotten to create a few important categories.

To nhận xét your categories, select Product > Categories from WordPress’s left-hand menu.

I’ve already created a Kitchen parent category that features my Bar stools, Dining chairs and Kitchen stools child categories, but now I’m going to lớn create some additional parent categories: Office, Bedroom, Living Room, & Garden.

To create a parent category:

In Add New Category, enter the name of the parent category that you want to create.

*
Make sure Parent category is set to None.Cliông xã Add new category.Find the first child category that you want khổng lồ assign lớn this parent category, & then select the child’s accompanying Edit links.Open the Parent category dropdown và select the parent category that you just created.
*

Cliông xã Update.

Rinse and repeat for every child category that you want khổng lồ assign và every parent category that you want lớn create. 

Creating an Amazon-Style Product Menu

Next, I’m going lớn give sầu customers the ability to lớn filter products based on hàng hóa category. In this section, we’ll build a dropdown thực đơn, where selecting a parent category displays all the child categories associated with that parent.

*

This kind of parent/child product thực đơn is a staple of many eCommerce sites, including heavyweights such as Amazon và eBay. By adding this kind of sản phẩm menu to your eCommerce site, you can give visitors a familiar way khổng lồ explore everything that your store has khổng lồ offer. 

By default, it’s not possible lớn add hàng hóa categories to lớn a WordPress menu. Before building our menu, we need lớn edit these default settings: 

In WordPress’s left-hvà menu, select Appearance > Menus.Towards the top of the screen, find the Screen options section, và clichồng to lớn expand. Find Product categories, and select it.

You can now add sản phẩm categories to lớn your menus, so let’s create our menu:

Give sầu your thực đơn a name, và then cliông chồng Create new menu.Cliông xã to lớn exp& the Product categories section.
*
Select all the sản phẩm categories that you want to lớn add lớn your menu.Cliông chồng Add to lớn menu. All of the selected parent and child categories will now be added lớn the Menu structure section. Since we’re creating a dropdown menu, you need khổng lồ grab each child category và drop it beneath its associated parent category.Next, grab each child category & drag it slightly khổng lồ the right, so that it appears indented beneath its parent. Release the child category, và it should now be permanently indented.Repeat this indenting process for every child category. 
*
If you want lớn change where an chiến thắng appears in your menu, then grab it in Menu structure and drop it into a new location. When you’re happy with how your thực đơn is phối up, clichồng Save sầu Menu.To place this thực đơn on your website, cliông chồng the Manage Locations tab. Assuming that you want this thực đơn to appear across your entire trang web, open the Top Menu dropdown & select the menu that you just created.Cliông xã Save sầu Changes.

This parent/child menu will now appear across your eCommerce store, making it easy for customers lớn explore your hàng hóa categories. 

Designing a WooCommerce Store With Elementor Pro

At this point, you have all the elements that you need for a successful eCommerce store: a WooCommerce installation, some products, & a menu that visitors can use to lớn explore your store.

However, there’s one final piece of cài đặt that we need lớn persize. By default, you can only use Elementor lớn thiết kế posts and pages, và not products. 

Before we move sầu on lớn the next section, we need to extend Elementor’s capabilities khổng lồ include WooCommerce products: 

In WordPress’s left-h& menu, select Elementor > Settings.In Post Types, select Products.
*

Select Save sầu Changes.

You can now use Elementor to lớn thiết kế customized sản phẩm pages—so let’s get started!

Redesigning WooCommerce’s Single Product Page

Product pages are how visitors view and ultimately purchase your products, so it’s vital they look good & provide all the functionality your customers need.

Clichồng Save & Close.

This template will now be rolled out across all your hàng hóa pages.

Building a Custom WooCommerce Product Archive

The hàng hóa archive sầu is a các mục containing all your products in a single location. When you phối up WooCommerce, this plugin added a sản phẩm archive lớn your website automatically, although the archive’s look and feel will vary depending on your WordPress theme.
