Since the latest version 3.5 of Elementor Pro, which was released in early November, there are two new widgets. The Cart and Checkout for WooCommerce, with which the shopping cart and checkout process in Elementor Editor can be made clearer with just a few clicks. (I have introduced these two widgets in this video).

Since WooCommerce is not legally compliant for the German market by default – this concerns, for example, the indication of tax, delivery times and terms and conditions in the price markups – there are two very good plugins for this. The plugin “Germanized” and “German Market”. Both offer many functions that make your shop legally compliant for the German market and many additional features such as invoicing as a PDF with your own logo, etc..

But do these plugins now work with Elementor Pro’s new Checkout Widget?

I tested both plugins with Elementor Pro and the Checkout widget. In the video below you can see all the details of how well both plugins work on the checkout page.

For German Market, there is a small workaround to make the checkout widget work correctly. And here is the code you have to embed in your functions.php (im theme Ordner):

add_action( 'after_setup_theme', function() {
	add_filter( 'german_market_add_woocommerce_de_templates_force_original', function( $return_original, $template_name ) {
		if ( 'checkout/form-checkout.php' === $template_name ) {
			$return_original = true;
		return $return_original;
	}, 10, 2 );

Both plugins will still work without the checkout widget – as usual with the shortcode [woocommerce_checkout] instead. But then you can’t adapt it to your page in Elementor.

The Checkout Widget, which allows you to style each section of the checkout, is only available in the Pro version of Elementor. Get Elementor Pro now!
