The best part is, the Elementor comes with some pre-made product page templates, so, if you like to quick start, select anyone from the options that looks closest to your desired one.
It’s lot more easier to create a product page from the pre-made template rather than creating from scratch. Therefore, modify any existing template and save your time and effort.

Now, add the product image in the left column and drag’n drop the product image widget from the left column.
You can add the padding to both columns to keep them slightly apart from each other.
After adding the image and adjusting the padding according to the required dimensions add the product rating widget under the product title.
Add a brief description of product widget underneath the product review block. you can also adjust the space between the two blocks.
Once you are done with the product description and all details, our next step is to add the price of the product and for this you’ll have to drag’n drop the price widget under the description of the product.
After adding the price tab below the product description you can customize the price widget by selecting the options from the left menu. You can enlarge the icon, change the font style and also the font color from black to any other color of your choice.
Now add the widget “add to the cart” and customize its color, font or style from the menu if you like to.
Now, add product meta under the price widget that’ll show the product category and product serial number.
Step 2: add additional information about the product in the next section.
