  1. Hi Adam,

    Thank you for the amazing video it is helping alot. I am having problems uploading the theme from astra site it keeps telling me failed to import. I don’t know what I am doing wrong.

    1. Unfortunately, Avada locks you in completely. That’s one of the reasons I won’t recommend the theme. You would have to make each page one by one in Elementor. It’s not so bad since every so often you need to update the design of your website anyways.

  2. Hi Adam,
    I’m a fan! :’)

    I have a concern about payment processors, though:
    Stripe, etc. have such high fees per transaction (3%!) It’s really the reason why I haven’t gone the online payment route yet.
    Is there an option for credit card payment that doesn’t have to go through them? -_-


  3. Hi Adam,

    I am in the process of making my website thanks to your very detailed tutorial, I have a quick question, is there a way to change the cart icon to cart instead of the default basket?

    I have searched and cannot find the answer. I would really appreciate your help. Thanks

  4. I have been watching your very impressive full depth tutorial of Online store with Elementor & Astra. I have watched some of your other tutorials also. You are definitely the Best about WordPress related tutorials. God Bless!! I am working on making a promotional Products website – So there are minimum quantities. Like Want to buy personalized pens – Minimum quantity would 50 or 100 or 150 – Depends on the type of product and there could be a setup charge for imprint on the pen. Is there a plugin for WooCommerce and suggesting the client similar products. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

      1. Hi Adam,

        Thank you very much for your 4 hours tutorial. That is a great tutorial and awesome hard work. Learnt a lot despite the fact I was familiar with Elementor.

        While I was watching your video, I also followed it along to create my own demo online store. I noticed that some of the wooCommerce features are not available anymore, such as the variations feature and the store left side bar from today’s download (11/10/2018).

        I am curious if they have been removed from the free version.

        Thank you very much in advance for any info you may have.

        Have a blessing weekend!

        p.s. the website address is my demo online store.

        1. I can assure you that the variation feature is still there, but from time to time when a plug-in releases and update it might move where the settings can be accessed. A perfect example of that is with Elementor who just moved where templates are.
