Same problem here!
Using Astra theme, Elementor builder, and WooCommerce plug-in. Whichever page I set the “shop page” dashboard > WooCommerce > Settings > Products > Shop Page will get the same message.
I have tried disabling plug-ins one by one, changing my theme, my template, and even deleted pages to start over.
Can anyone explain the function of setting a page as a “shop” page? Or isn’t it completely necessary? Trying to understand it’s function.
This forum is specifically for assistance with core WooCommerce features.
If you need help with editing the pages with Elementor Pro, please reach out to the plugin devs directly since they’ll be the best source of support: https://elementor.com/support/

@americole the shop page is basically an archive of your products. You can read more about that at What is the Shop page? – Documentation.
Depending on how you’d like to sell products on your store, you can configure your shop to not have a shop page.
I’ll mark this topic as solved for now. Please feel free to open a new topic if you have any other questions.
