5. First, choose the Funnel Type and click on the Next button.

For now, we only have the sales funnel type which will allow you to create funnels using a Landing Page, Checkout page, order bump, upsell & downsell offers (Pro), and a Thank You page.

Very soon we will introduce the lead generation funnel and hybrid funnels, which will come as options in this step.

Once you click on the Next button, if you do not have WooCommerce on your site already, the setup wizard will run the installations for WooCommerce and Cart Lift (for abandoned cart recovery), and then take you to the next step.

Right now, WPFunnels is compatible with Elementor Page Builder and Gutenberg.

If you want to use Elementor to design the funnel step pages, then you will get respective widgets for funnel steps. Plus, you will also get several niche-specific funnel templates to choose from.

For Gutenberg, you will get dedicated blocks to create funnels on your own. And you can get ready templates that we created with the help of Qubely.

If you choose Elementor here, then clicking on the ‘Next’ button will install Elementor for you (if you do not have it already). And, if you choose Gutenberg, then Qubely will be installed for you.
