Visual Composer is a similar plugin allowing users to build their own WordPress site. Visual Composer offers a similar drag-and-drop style of page-building while offering design features like instant visual feedback while editing.
Visual Composer features a suite of pre-built elements within the plugin, and premium plans provide an expanded library and access to Unsplash’s selection of stock images.
Visual Composer offers a free-to-use program alongside three payment plans, with each tier offering more websites and more robust development tools. This plugin also promises weekly updates with new features constantly being added.
Elementor similarly offers various tools for companies to build and personalize their websites with a focus on marketing.
Elementor comes with a selection of tools for companies to streamline their website as a marketplace, allowing for custom widgets and templates built around advertising individual products. Elementor also offers learning tools for their program with YouTube tutorials directly linked through the plugin’s website.
Elementor has a free-to-use version with access to a limited selection of the plugin’s resources, with premium packages starting at $49 per year for a single website, including several tiers offering up to one thousand sites.
The BeaverBuilder plugin offers drag-and-drop web design across unlimited websites instead of restrictions on use from similar programs.
BeaverBuilder markets itself on the variety of sites the plugin can accommodate, from individual blogs to large companies. The plugin is compatible with almost every WordPress theme and a fair number of WordPress-based plugins, such as Genesis and Page Builder Framework.
BeaverBuilder does not feature a free-to-use plan, with premium plans for the page builder starting at $99 per year. BeaverBuilder also features a separate add-on called “Beaver Themer," allowing users to create custom site elements such as search pages and 404 pages priced at $147.
Themify Builder Pro also offers full site customisation functionality, although it's maybe not as well featured as Oxygen Builder.
Both plugins offer WooCommerce integration, although for Oxygen this comes in at the second pricing tier.
Themify's builder is cheaper at $69, but the fact that you need to renew yearly (albeit at a 30% discount) to maintain support and updates detracts somewhat.
WPBakery is really the other end of the spectrum when considering page builders.
Oxygen Builder is designed as a full site builder, and while it can be used as a page builder, the site also needs to be built with it. WPBakery on the other hand is only capable of building individual pages, and none of the rest of the layout.
Price wise, Oxygen Builder is more expensive, starting at $129, but can be used on unlimited sites, whereas WPBakery Page Builder costs $45 but can only be used on a single site.
