In order to have a successful eCommerce website it’s important to differentiate yourself from others. To do that there are a few things you can do such as making it easier for your users to search your site, display your products so that they are easy to find depending on the user’s preferences, customize your site so that it gives a clear vision of the type of product you are selling etc.
Everything above must be eye-catching, easy to use, simple and preferably fast and effective. It sounds overwhelming but in this article we will show you how to incorporate all the above by using the Astra WooCommerce features and more importantly that it’s not so complicated as it sounds.
What are my options with Astra WooCommerce?
Depending on your preferences and aspirations, you can use the Astra free theme or add some extra paid options with Astra Pro Addon plugin.
Both versions are highly customizable so which one you’ll choose will be completely up to you, but maybe we can help with that decision by listing and explaining some features in the following text.
Astra free theme
Now before we begin with the fun stuff you are probably wondering how adaptable Astra is for WooCommerce? The answer is very adaptable. Astra has inbuilt integration for WooCommerce and therefore provides full compatibility to your store. The only thing you need to do is to make sure you have your WooCommerce plugin installed and activated and your Astra Theme and you’re ready to roll.
Astra WooCommerce settings are combined with WooCommerce Default settings in the Customizer where you can now find the WooCommerce panel which takes you to further options.
From there, you can easily customize your store.
- Product Catalog
You can choose content width by using a default or custom option, set the number of columns and the number of products you want to display in order to list products on all devices and even structure your products which you can later move or disable.
- Single Product Page
Under Single Product Page you can disable breadcrumbs from appearing or,, Cart Page” where you can choose to enable upsells if you wish to display upsell products.
- Product images and icons
You can manage your Main image and Thumbnail image width options and you can also control your sidebar options on WooCommerce pages which include Shop, Cart and Checkout.
Last but not least, you need not worry about losing your originally set colors or fonts because as we mentioned at the beginning all your previously set WooCommerce elements automatically adapt with the newly added Astra features.
Astra Pro addon
With the Astra Pro addon you get everything mentioned above in the free version but with some enhanced features which provide even more control over your store designing.
- Sale Bubble
Decide the way you want your sales to look. You can choose a default form of a small sale circle or customize it by showing the discount percentage instead of the price.
There are also four styling options you can choose from such as Circle and Square that are filled with a color of your choice or you prefer the simpler outlined look that you can get with a Circle or Square outline.

Choose your layout by using the Grid view where the product picture takes center stage and below you have the price, sale price and other product – related information or the List view where the product information and pictures are shown side by side.
- Individual products page
Enhance your individual product page customization with; Product image gallery layout, Breadcrumbs, Add to cart styling, Product navigation and Related and Up – Sell products.

- Two–Step Checkout
Separately displayed Billing details and Your order section, now the customer can proceed to checkout entering billing information plus an optional order note. You can add a Coupon Field at the top at the checkout page or decide to disable it.
At the end you have a Distraction Free Checkout which when enabled suspends the menu in the header and the footer.
- Off Canvas Sidebar
You can choose to show the Off Canvas Sidebar in a few different ways like the link in the form of a three line menu or the button option which is shown with the default theme color and styling applied.
