In this article, I am going to take a deep look at all the features and modules of this promising plugin. Not just the good part but also the part where the plugin can improve.

With advanced widgets, ShopEngine also comes with modules like Pre Order, Back Order, Wishlist, Product Comparison, Quick View, and many more modules which you can use to enhance the functionalities of your online store
ShopEngine Free VS Pro
Shop Engine has 2 versions, Free and Pro. The free version has been available on WordPress.org for less than 6 months and has over 3,000+ active installations. Following the success of the ShopEngine Free version, the team has recently released the Pro version with more features.
Of course, there is a difference in the number of features between the Free and Pro version. But the free version offers a good amount of features to start building your custom WooCommerce site. And the Pro version seems fully packed with WooCommerce tools to build your own custom eCommerce store.
In this blog, we are going to review the pro version which includes all features.
Features of ShopEngine
Like I have said before, it offers not only advanced widgets but also advanced modules and templates for all WooCommerce pages.
Let’s talk about all the features one by one
Ideally, I should start with the Template builders but I was so impressed with the Modules ShopEngine has to offer that I must talk about them first. Modules are the high point that makes this plugin more effective and useful than other plugins in the market.
You will find plugins that do offer you more or less options to beautify your WooCommerce site but they don’t necessarily offer so many eCommerce functional features. You will need multiple plugins to get all the functionalities that ShopEngine Pro provides in just one.
ShopEngine offers 12+ Modules that you can use to make the website more appealing to customers and your business more profitable. Let’s have a look at those:
|Flash Sale Countdown||✅||✅|
|Additional Checkout Fields||❌||✅|
You can use ShopEngine’s modules to make the website more appealing to customers and your business more profitable.
For a better shopping experience for your customers, ShopEngine provides Quick View, Variation Swatches, Wishlist, Product Comparison modules with advanced settings and styling options. These will make give your website a more advanced with modern look. In addition, these will make it more convenient for your customers to navigate and choose products according to their choice.
And they choose the products they want to buy, customers can easily checkout with ease using the Quick Checkout module. This module is a blessing for busy customers as it is a time saver. ShopEngine also offers Currency Switcher Module so consumers can easily check product prices in their preferred currency and also check out on their own currency.
Wanna boost your sales? No worries! ShopEngine got that part covered that too with modules like Flash Sale Countdown and Badges. These two modules highlight the product that is on sale. You can also easily create sales campaigns like Black Friday using Flash sale countdown.
Not just sales, you can encourage your customers to shop more by giving them the option of paying in parts using the Partial Payment Module. Also, notify customers every time someone purchases something at your website with a sales notification module.
The icing on the cake is the Pre-Order, Back-Order module which will turn stock management into a super easy task. The Back-Order module of this WooCommerce plugin has more advanced options than the WooCommerce built-in one.
Another interesting new addition to the ShopEngine module list is the Additional Checkout Fields module. This module lets you add a custom form field to check out forms like Billing Form, Shipping From, etc.
Overall, I can say the modules are rock-solid and will be valuable to your WordPress eCommerce store. Especially if you consider the fact you are getting so many functionalities under one plugin.
Let’s move on to templates now…
ShopEngine provides 15+ WooCommerce templates to make your life easy. You can use any of the templates and edit them with the Elementor page builder.
All the templates come with multiple ready-to-use designs which you can use to give your WooCommerce pages a stunning look in just a few clicks. You will get multiple in fact up to 10 premade designs with each of the templates. Still, if you don’t like the existing designs you can always create one from scratch.
I want to specifically highlight the Quick View Modal and check-out templates. These two are highly effective features when it comes to eCommerce stores. Furthermore, You can make the My Account Page and Thank you pages more personalized to give your customer a better experience.
You get every page you need for a WooCommerce page and it’s incredible how every little thing about the template is customizable. It is the most freedom you are going to get when it comes to WooCommerce page customization.
Here is a list of all the WooCommerce templates you will get with ShopEngine:
|My Account Dashboard||❌||✅|
|My Account Orders||❌||✅|
|My Account Order Details||❌||✅|
|My Account Download||❌||✅|
|My Account Address||❌||✅|
|My Account Login/Register||❌||✅|
|My Account Details||❌||✅|
Of course! to build templates, you need widgets and so let’s talk about the widget now…
You will get around 65+ advanced-level widgets to build your pages. And the great thing is widgets are added keeping different WooCommerce page templates in mind?
So, whether you are looking to build a Single Page, Cart Page, Checkout Page, or Thank you page, you will find almost every possible relevant widget that you can use or will need.
You will find more control over your shop page design with the Archive/Shop page widgets. On the checkout page, along with the traditional widgets, you also get an order review so your customer can see the order details in one place.
In addition to the specific widgets, you get a set of general widgets that you can use on all the templates. Some of the general widgets are Filter Price, Advanced Search, Deal Products, Flash Sale Products, Filterable Product Lists, and many more.
You also get advanced thank you widgets which are rare in WooCommerce builder plugins. In ShopEngine, along with Thank You Address Details, Order Details, Order Thank You, you also get the Order Confirm widget.
And don’t forget, you can add custom form fields to your check-out page widgets which you can use to get more information about your customers. This option can be extremely handy depending on the business you do.
The search widgets are Ajax-based which will ensure customers can search for products and shop seamlessly. In short, ShopEngine provides enough widgets to equip you to build professional WooCommerce websites with a personal touch.
ShopEngine is an Elementor WooCommerce builder and Elementor has recently given recognition to ShopEngine’s credibility by adding it to its 3rd party addon list. So, you can be assured that it’s 100% compatible with Elementor. If you are an Elementor lover like me, then you will find no difficulty using this.
I liked the fact the widgets are organized template-wise so it’s easier to find them. You can also search for them just like any Elementor widget and use them. Overall the user interface is pretty user-friendly.
One more thing I liked is the plugin offers 2 options for enabling and disabling features. So, you can turn on/off all the widgets/ modules at once or can turn on/off individually depending on your needs.
