Step 2: Configure Your WooCommerce Product Carousel
Under the ‘Content’ tab in Elementor Editor, you will see there are many different options to configure the content of your WooCommerce product carousel. From the ‘Layout’ settings , you can choose from four different preset layouts for your product slider.
You can configure the options in the ‘Layout’ settings even more to change the titles in your product slider, show or hide the product ratings, price, description, adjust image size, and much more.
Next comes the ‘Carousel’ settings, which as the name suggests, lets you make changes such as customizing the slider effect, choose how many products to display, adjust the gap between each item, and other details.
At the moment, you can choose between a ‘Slide’ effect and a ‘Coverflow’ effect for your WooCommerce product carousel. You can also adjust the animation speed, and add navigation options by tweaking the settings of your EA Woo Product Carousel widget.
After the ‘Carousel’ settings, you get the ‘Query’ settings that lets you filter your products, change the order, and showcase them by tags or categories. In other words, the options under the ‘Query’ settings control which products should be displayed in your carousel to make the process easier for you.
Besides this, if you want to let your customers know when a product has been sold out, or which products are on sale, you can configure the options under the ‘Sales/Stock Out Badge’ settings. From here, you can choose from 5 ready layouts for showing your out of stock products or your on sale products. You can also add your own custom text and change the alignment for the badge as you prefer.
