Using the Thrive Theme Builder Site wizard is very useful, as it helps you set up your site's most important elements very quickly. After using the wizard, you can go to the template editor and further customize your site.
This article goes through each step of the wizard, and explains how to choose the respective elements.
If you have installed and activated WooCommerce, and you want to start building your shop in Thrive Theme Builder, then you will also be able to see a few extra steps in the Thrive Theme Builder Site Wizard, under the "WooCommerce" section:
These will allow you to choose the Shop Header and Footer, as well as the default Shop Homepage, Product, Cart and Checkout Templates.
12. Shop Header
The first WooCommerce step from the wizard is the "Shop Header" one:
You can differentiate the shop section of your site, by setting a completely different header for it.
When you first click on this step, you will be able to navigate through all of the available headers and choose one for your shop, or you can click on the "Use my default header" option:
This option will inherit the Header that you have chosen for your theme, in the 3rd Site Wizard step:
If, however, you do want to choose a different header for the shop part of your website, you can do that. On the top side of the page, you will be able to navigate through the header templates using the arrows on the left and right side of the header preview:
You can also click on the section with the name of the header, to open a pop-up with all the available Shop Headers:
From the pop-up, click on the preferred option, and the Header will change:
Make sure to click on "Choose and Continue", to save the chosen Header:
Clicking on this will take you to the next step of the wizard:
13. Shop Footer
Similarly, you will be able to choose a Shop Footer for your shop:
Just like in the case of the Shop Header, feel free to use the "Use my default footer" option, or choose a different footer from the top side of the screen:
Again, make sure to click on "Choose and Continue" to save the footer and go to the next step:
14. Shop Homepage
The next step is the homepage that you set for your shop:
Click on the field from the top right side, to open a pop-up with all of the available templates:
Click on the one you prefer, to apply it:
The template chosen here will be the Default WooCommerce Shop Template, that you can access and customize from the "Templates" section:

The "Single Product" wizard step will allow you to choose the WooCommerce Product template:
Click on the template name, in the top right side of the screen, to open the list of Product templates:
Click on one of the templates, to apply it:
The template that you choose here will represent the "Default WooCommerce Template", found in the "Templates" section:
