Variable products

This feature is very handy since this is applicable in most shops today.

Shop widgets

We talked about widgets a while before, when we were talking about sidebars some of the available widgets are specific to shops. Using them is exactly the same as we previously mentioned it. All you need to do is to drag and drop them to a specific widget area. WooCommerce widget names usually have the word WooCommerce in it (Ex: WooCommerce product filter). Custom WooCommerce widgets that are only available to our customer has the word WC in their names (Ex: Kite WC product rating).

Shop Filter

The custom shop filter is totally integrated into our theme, this means that you won't need to install a plugin to be able to use it. The filter can be added to the top of shop page (The page with WooCommerce shop element). To enable or disable it please go to theme settings and enable shop filter,
