Once again, the Kadence team has released a groundbreaking new plugin that helps WooCommerce store owners create dynamic and powerful shopping experiences for consumers. With the release of Kadence Shop Kit 2.0, store owners can now leverage over 15 powerful modules to create an immersive eCommerce experience.
The Kadence Shop Kit plugin is available in the Kadence Full Bundle, and anyone with a Full Bundle subscription is able to download the plugin from their Kadence account dashboard. For those using previous versions of Kadence Shop Kit, they can upgrade easily in their wp-admin plugins dashboard.
As a part of our launch, we hosted a YouTube livestream that demonstrated a number of Kadence Shop Kit’s key features. That video is embedded below along with timestamps that link you into the key features we demonstrated.
Customizing WooCommerce Product Page Layouts
By far, the most powerful and requested module in Kadence Shop Kit 2.0 is the ability to customize the product page layouts. Kadence Shop Kit’s custom template builder uses the WordPress block editor to create dynamic and attractive product layouts that have previously only been customizable by getting into custom code. This no-code solution for product page layouts uses Kadence’s powerful dynamic templating capabilities to create unique presentations of products that connect with customers in an immersive experience.
The benefit of using unique product layouts is clear. Not only can you customize a shopping experience so that prospective customers can easily imagine themselves as owners of your product, but Shop Kit also provides an opportunity to create a uniquely brand-specific and personalized experience that sets your storefront apart from standard WooCommerce implementations.
Whether you’re customizing a product layout for all of your products, one category, or a specific layout for one product only, Kadence Shop Kit puts the freedom and flexibility in WooCommerce store owners’ hands.
In creating these customized product pages, there are a number of new features that Kadence Shop Kit brings to product pages. These include the capability to:
- Implement a variety of advanced gallery styles to showcase products.
- Use video in product galleries to provide more robust product evaluation experiences.
- Display variation swatches on an attribute-by-attribute basis as well as variation galleries.
- Create immediate social proof with great reviews, voting capabilities, and order reviews to show the highest-voted reviews first. Display a review overview board.
- Build dynamic informational tabs using the WordPress block editor to unlock any kind of global tab layout you desire with Shop Kit’s custom template builder.
- Simplify sizing decisions with easy-to-build size charts that can be applied to one product or to a whole product category.
- Add size charts to the product page as a tab, or use a button that opens a modal with your site chart.
- Leverage brand influence on product displays, choosing where to show on archive and single product pages.
- Grow revenue capabilities by unlocking affiliate sales with the Shop Kit affiliate product options.
