Need help looking for a module that can create color swatches by linking multiple simple-typed products

Hi everyone,

I’m in searching for a module that would allow me to create color swatches for products such as t-shirts or bags that actually link between multiple simple products instead of using a bundled product.

I did some online and found couple of the modules such as
http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/product-color-swatch.html
http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/color-swatches-magento-extension.html

However, they all seem to simply extend the functionality of a bundle product.

Is there any module out there (for version 1.7.0.2) that allows a merchant to link up multiple products (same product type but have different colors and SKU) just like this website? http://www.knomobags.com/usa/laptop-sleeves/alfie-slim-briefcase-marine.html/ (check “More Colours” option)

I’m hoping to reduce the development type by using a 3rd party module instead of implementing the custom code myself.

Thank you very much.

Patt

Hello Patt, for your purposes you may try this http://amasty.com/color-swatches-pro.html extension. With its help you’ll be able to create color swatches for products that link between multiple simple products, but not bundled items.

The module will enable you:

- Use images for attributes selection
- Let customers buy configurables from category pages
- Reload product images, name and description with AJAX
- View image details with elegant zoom and lightbox effects

Moreover, with the module there is no need to specify price difference for associated products.

This Magento Color Swatch extension could fit your needs. This extension permits you to add product’s image next to custom option values.

Support four types of custom options: checkbox, radio button, dropdown list and multi select
Click directly on the image to select an option value
