Why Our Extension?

  • We are one of the very first and original swatch extensions for Magento! 3+ years of continued development, so you know our extension is fine tuned and ready for your store!
  • No Ion Cube needed! Code is NOT encrypted and completely editable!
  • We can customize the extension to fit your needs if you need features that are not already in the extensive feature set!
  • See the full feature set below!

Description

Have you ever wished you could display all the available colors of a product in a search result or category listing? Do you like how some websites make it easy for their customers to see all the colors but when you click on a color it links you to the configurable and selects the color automatically for the customer?

With this extension this is now possible! Create a configurable product, set the child simple products to visible, and this module links the simple products to the configurable and pre-selects the color attribute and changes the images to that color!

You can also use this module if you have always wanted color swatches that will change the product image and more view images to match the color selected! Just upload all images to the parent product and easily set the options there. Don't bother making color swatches, because this module will make them for you! And if you need custom colors, you can also upload your custom patterns and swatches in the easy to use swatches panel where you can upload, edit and view your swatches.

This module makes it much easier for the customer to see what they are getting, which in turn creates more sales! Your customers will love this!

Features

  • If set to visible, when the child product is clicked it will link to the parent configurable and automatically pre-select the swatch attributes of the simple product and change the images on the configurable product to the image of the simple.
  • See all available color options in category and search listings!
  • See all available swatch options for a configurable product in category and search listings and change images based on swatch selection right from the category and search listings!
  • If swatch is selected on category page, the selected swatch and matching product image will be automatically selected when click through to the product page.
  • Sort by visual swatch images instead of text!
  • Automatically preselect swatches and change product images to layered navigation selection on category and search pages!
  • Option to select which swatch attributes you want shown on category and search listings.
  • Ability to have unlimited swatch attributes!
  • If an option is not available for purchase, swatch is disabled but still visible!
  • Automatically creates swatch based on color name or HEX value if there is no custom swatch uploaded.
  • Easy to use swatch panel to upload your own swatches for patterns or mixed colors and edit and view swatches.
  • Switches image based on which swatch is selected.
  • Built-in Zoom function with many options (can be disabled).
  • Changes more views to display images from just that option of product.
  • Upload all images to configurable product and then set options from image tab.
  • Option to set the size of swatch to whatever size you want for each swatch attribute.
  • Setup for easy translation, includes EN language pack.
  • Swatches are cached until product is saved again, or manually refreshed. Speeds up performance!

    About the Developer

    This extension was developed by and is supported by chadjmorgan

    Pre-Select Colors Plus Swatches 4.2 5 70 70
    Very Good Extension Overall This extension is really a good one. It is quite comprehensive, does what it promises to do and is easy to work with once it is installed. I did need installation help the first time around and after I upgraded my theme (ultimo) it didn't work properly and I needed to pay for installation service again (although not a lot). This is the only hitch I feel should be improved upon. Otherwise it is really great and customer support could not have been any better. Customer Service was supportive and efficient. December 23, 2013
    Works if you will never use any custom theme We bought this for our site that uses one of the most popular Magento Themes "Ultimo". Out of the box the extension pretty much did nothing. After paying $25 extra for the custom service, Chad, the developer, made it work by modifying unamed other plugin files. This obviously makes your site unmaintainable on upgrade of these themes or plugins. Unless the extension gets better documentation on how which code to customize to make this work with other than the standard theme I would probably look elsewhere. December 7, 2013
    Just for it Great product, easy to use. Worth for what you pay. Highly recommended it December 4, 2013
    Excellent extension! Works really great and super easy to use, recommended 10000%! December 4, 2013
    Excellent Support, Excellent Exstension I have after I installed a new theme turned me to the support of Exstenion. Because my theme was not 100% compatible with the exstension. That was no problem, the support has helped me quickly and now everything works again. Here again a big thank you for the help. November 20, 2013
    Sloppy Execution For a Premium Extension This extension simply did not do what it was designed to do. I have several e-commerce stores built on Magento and have purchased $1,000's in extensions. I've never had an experience like this. My site has a lot of custom programming so I am aware that there are often times you cannot simply plop an extension in place and expect it to work without some modification, but this extension caused so much headache I decided to get rid of it and have custom development work done to get swatches on my site. When I emailed the developer about my concerns, I got a condescending response that basically just implied the extension was flawfless and the only problem is I don't know what I'm doing. I've been working with Magento for years and I think I know where my expectations should be after purchasing many other extensions prior to this one. It caused conflicts with other extensions that were working perfectly before this one was ever installed, all of our custom attributes were no longer visible in the backend after we moved the site from staging yet became visible again after we got rid of this extension, the swatches did not show up at the category level, the product page swatches did not select the appropriate product image when clicked, and on the admin pages there was an issue that wouldn't let you select custom attributes in the multi-select box that should have been available for use with this extension. These are just the major problems we ran into. I could make a laundry list of every problem we had with the extension. I think the other 3 one star ratings speak volumes about the extension and the developer's attitude about fixing these issues. Pass on this one to save your time and money. November 17, 2013
    Fantastic Extension I tried for several days with all kinds of extensions and combinations of extensions to get the functionality that this offers out of the box. Save yourself some time and money (time is money after-all) and get this extension before wasting several days trying anything else. Well worth the $79.99 I had only one small hickup that was due to a conflict between Organic's Simple Configurable Products, but Chad responded to my email within 30 minutes and pointed out the conflict. After removing SCP (which seems redundant with this extension) everything is functioning perfectly and already making life easier. Absolutely love that the thumbnails can be auto-generated from the base product images. That is a huge time saver over other extensions I tried. Thanks for the great extension and helpful tech support! November 12, 2013
    More then I expected I only can say a very Thank you for exelent help and support to Chad. I ordered innstallation service from Chad as I had in mind that there would be some need of solving some adjustments regarding to my template. Chad have solved everything in a Perfect way. I will be more then safe and secured to buy other Extensions/AddOns from Chad. October 31, 2013
    functions as described, that was what i want like i say in the title, the extension works as described. the support via e-mail is fast, no more to ask. thanks for all Chad September 24, 2013
    Good extension, Very Good extension, I purchased the installation service, and Chad do help alot! Thanks! I recommend! Maggie August 13, 2013

    Hey Chad,

    I've now created the test product at last; sorry for the delay, I had to learn the basics of Magento to do it. As you've already done the install, can you now complete your checks today and restore the template back to how it was? Please also see separate email I sent you. Many thanks

    Hello,

    We are seriously considering getting this extension to work with Ultimo Theme, but got scared with a reviews that says there needs to be some custom development to make it work. Is that so? If not, would you offer support if anything happened?

    Also, is the look something we can customize?

    Thanks in advanced for your help.
