Why choose Zion Builder over other page builders.

The price that you will need to pay to access all the Pro features, sometimes you only need to purchase one license, and paying extra to get more licenses is not something that you want. Zion Builder grants access to all Pro the features for as low as $39/year/license and Elementor for $49/year/license with some feature restrictions. Bricks, Oxygen don't have a yearly payment option, just one time payment at a higher price, Divi has a yearly payment but not for single licenses and at a higher price $89.
How cheap are the support and updates if you just want one license and all features access.
How cheap are the support and updates if you just want unlimited licenses and all features access.
What our members say
Best Builder So Far
I was convinced to give it a try when I saw a heavy Oxygen user suggested to do so. It doesn't let me down.
I'm very happy with this purchase. This is more intuitive and faster than Oxygen. I've been a heavy Oxygen user, and before that, I thought Elementor was the best thing since the creation of WordPress.
Building websites will be simpler and with greater results.
I also confirm it's like a combination of Divi and Oxygen.
It outperforms every aspect of Elementor. Simply give it a try and you won't regret.
I thought I had bought my last WP builder lol
You had me at "speed". I'm down to only a couple WP sites now thank goodness. But I'm gonna give this a solid try. So far what I've see is brilliant.
One of the things that caught my attention in the video is how we can use css calc() in the padding and margin fields, with thoughtfulness such as that I'm definitely looking forward to seeing using this on a production site. Hopefully it can make me love WP again!
I have started experimenting with Zion Builder and have been very pleasantly surprised. I find it easier to control on page elements than in Elementor.
Hey folks, Just have to say that I love this plugin!!! I use the Pro version and what a breathe of fresh air. No bloat, no DOM dominance with <div>’s, super lightweight and fast, clean and intuitive UI, and just the right amount of features. Love it!
Great Page Builder for SEO.
Page load time is an important factor for Google to rank the web pages. If you think SEO is important, Zion Builder should be used instead. This page builder is very lightweight and faster than Elementor. This is what make it better for SEO.
Lightweight with lots of features.
I was looking for a lightweight page builder with lots of features and I have to say I found it. It even include functionalities which other Page Builders charge for and it's very easy to understand and use. Thanks a lot guys...
Template kits are a collection of several templates, designed for one niche.
Blocks are sections of a template, which can be stacked on top of each other and make up an entire web page.
Zion Builder can resize any element width/height by fluidly dragging their borders, Bricks lets you resize only containers, Oxygen doesn't let you resize elements by dragging the borders, Elementor can adjust only the width of the columns and some elments, Divi lets you resize some of the elements but the experience is laggy.
Zion Builder lets you add margins and paddings visually by dragging any element inner/outer border with a fluid experience. You can also use ctrl or ctrl+shift to set incremental values or set even values. Bricks has the same fluid experience as Zion Builder without incremental values. Oxygen doesn't have a way to set even values or incremental values, Elementor doesn't have a way to set visual margins & paddings, Divi has a laggy experience.
"There is no comparison between Zion and Elementor - Zion can run circles around Elementor."
Advantages: Speed, Flexibility, Usability, Performance
Zion Builder lets you save your designed blocks locally, generating live screenshots for them, you can then reuse them throughout your website. Also lets you share your local library with multiple websites. Bricks doesn't generates live screenshots and lets you share your library only with one website. Elementor, Oxygen & Divi have no screenshot preview for saved blocks and no sharing with other websites option. Oxygen Library navigation is counter-productive and needs to many clicks to access desired blocks or templates.
Zion Builder lets you move the UI panels and dock them in any combination that you want, enabling you to edit the page or add elements while in full-width mode, giving you a pleasant experience when designing.
Bricks and Oxygen have fixed UI and you can't add elements while in full-width mode.
Elementor has no full-width edit mode but lets you dock the navigation.
Divi has a full-width edit experience, the layers can not be docked, the settings bar can be docked anywhere you want and you can add elements and adjust the page while in full-width edit mode.
Enable a full range of flexbox atributes visually without typing a single line of code.
Zion Builder tree-view is can be undocked or docked to the left or right. You can copy-paste styles by right clicking the layers and also doing other actions.
Bricks and Oxygen don't have right-click options for tree-view layers and neither copy-pasting styles option from one layer to the other. Also, the position of the tree-view is fixed.
Elementor can be undocked and docked only to the right side of the screen and also has right-click options.
Divi has floating navigation that can not be docked, has layers with right-click actions, and the ability to search and filter layers.
Section View is the easiest way to reorder entire sections/block designs when you have a big landing page, and your tree view layers are all expanded. Instead of collapsing all layers then figuring which layer to move where, you simply go to section view where you can visually see your section, then move it where you want. *chef's kiss*
Zion Builder has two other tree-views, one horizontal breadcrumbs tree-view and one mini vertical tree-view that lets you easily find your elements parents from the edit area or element options area without the need of opening the main tree view.

Zion Builder lets you save both global colors and global gradients, while the rest of page builders only save global colors. Zion builder lets you add multiple gradients one over the other each gradient with unlimited colors. Divi & Elementor are limited to two colors per gradient, Bricks & Oxygen have similar UI and are not as user-friendly as ZionBuilder's gradient tool and without the layered gradients.
Have access to all CSS properties for all inner parts of components.
Style any child element visually using the child selectors. This opens the door to beautiful hover animations. Apply hover/focus effects to child elements from the parent style options.
Zion Builder let's you add classes visually to child elements. For example to the icon inside a button; for the tabs and content of an accordion etc.
White Label lets you rebrand Zion Builder with your own companys name and logo.
The ease with which you create layouts using columns or containers, resizing them, and how flexible they are. Adding margins and paddings, using shortcut keys while dragging.
"I really think Elementor, Divi and other slow builders have no future, espacially with the new SEO speed rules from the google search engine for 2021 and also because of Gutenberg."
"I'm a designer by trade and have dabbled ever so slightly into the world of wordpress. I have previously used Divi to build 1 site many moons ago. So armed with little experience of what I should/shouldn't be doing, I found it very easy to use Zion Builder so far. Their YouTube tutorials were a big help in this step and I feel confident that Zion Builder will finally allow me to take the leap into building the sites that I design.
Having the right tools, definitely makes learning new skills much easier!"

Build custom repeater queries with ease in advanced elements like sliders, accordions, tabs, etc. Zion Builder let's you turn any element into a repeater
"I shall say one line about bricks. It is not for us(3rd party developers)."
Advantages: Flexibility, Usability, Features
To make the tests as accurate as possible we've built a landing page with each page builder, using the same elements, the landing pages were hosted on the same server and didn't do any optimizations. Then tested the pages on Google's PageSpeed and Pingdom 10 times in different periods of the day and averaged the score.
How snappy the builder feels when using it. We have sanctioned any laggy behavior when dragging or clicking different actions or if any bugs occurred when using the UI. Bricks has delays when deleting large portions of content with multiple elements and the draggable input size is laggy. Oxygen has small layout shifts noticeable in the options panel, you can see the element handle UI reposition itself when choosing a different device, the draggable margin and padding are not as fluid as Zion Builder and Bricks, small delays between selections compared with Zion Builder where the selection is instant. Elementor is a bit laggy only when switching between different responsive devices. Divi backend speed needs serious improvements.
