The free version of Elementor offers limitless design possibilities. On the other hand, the pro version empowers you with more professional tools that speed up your workflow and allow you to get more conversions and sales.
In this article, I will run through 10 great features of Elementor to whet your appetite for design.
1. Theme Builder
With Elementor Pro Theme Builder, you are no longer restricted to your theme limitations. You can visually design your header, footer, archive page, single posts, and all other parts of your site using Elementor. This works on any WordPress theme and requires no coding whatsoever to achieve. No other theme or plug-in offers this as a solution. By making the entire web design process visual and code-free, you are able to complete projects significantly faster than ever before.
2. WooCommerce Builder
Elementor Pro is capable of taking the design of your e-commerce site to the next level by allowing you to create and customize for your WooCommerce. There is absolutely no need to buy a WooCommerce theme, instead, you can customise the WooCommerce parts yourself using the visual editor. The WooCommerce parts you can create the custom templates of include: single product page, shop page, and cart page.
3. Form Builder
Elementor Pro gives you access to the Form Widget. You can use the widget to add a form to the page/theme builder template you are working on. The widget allows you to create a wide range of form types, thanks to its extensive field type support. Some of the field types supported by the form widget of Elementor include text, email, file upload, and password.

From email subscription pop-ups, cookie consent pop-ups, notification bars, and so on.
5. Third-Party Integrations

You can add custom CSS to every Elementor element.

While the free version offers basic widgets, the pro version comes with more advanced widgets like Forms, Posts, login, Price list, and so on.
