Spoiler alert – The two “nails in the coffin” with respect to Elementor not being compatible with Woocommerce are:
Why you can’t use Elementor to create Woocommerce categories
From Elementor support
What the other support teams were saying is essentially right.
The plugin (Elementor pro) won’t recognize it as an endpoint because it isn’t actually an archive page generated by WooCommerce (or WordPress for blog posts).
The plugin searches for archive and single pages (whether blog or product) and adds them to the breadcrumbs.
Standalone pages aren’t added since that’s not a part of what the plugin looks for.
In order for this to be recognized, you’ll have to create actual categories in WooCommerce (since you’re working with products) and create a template to display these within Elementor and that will ensure that the pages get picked up but look the way you want them to at the same time.
