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.

    Great Extension The extension works great so far on our development site. It did not work initially due to our custom theme, but we contacted support to install it correctly, and it was done very quickly, and was even taken care over the weekend. Aside from the initial compatibility hiccup, it's working exactly as it should! March 11, 2013
    This extension covers a very common requirement. Very interesting! On top of that, i would like to take product prices from simple products on product detail page of configurable products. I am using Simple Configurable Products for that (http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/simple-configurable-products.html) Will both extension be compatible? Or would you recommend to extend your extension instead? Thanks a lot! January 21, 2013
    Very robust and well-engineered extension. Quick support from developer. Required some modifications but well worth the effort. January 15, 2013
    Have purchased two extensions (Ultimate Swatches, Stock Status) from CJM. Both great extensions from an end-user UI/UX standpoint, both with excellent admin interface and documentation. CJM has been exceptionally helpful and very timely/patient in providing answers to our questions. In addition, we required some customization, which has been executed quickly and effectively at a very fair price. Will be looking out for new extensions from CJM in the future. Recommended without reservation. December 23, 2012
    I purchased the plugin and it works great. Thank you. However, there is one feature which I'm not sure if it's included in the plugin or not... If I have a shirt with 3 colors (Red, Green and Blue), regardless of which color I add to the cart, on the shopping cart page it always shows the base image. Is there anyway if I add the green shirt, the green picture shows up, and if I add the red shirt the red picture shows up on the shopping cart page. This might be confusing for the visitor, when they add a certain color to the cart, but only the base picture shows up on the shopping cart page, which is sometimes a different color then the one the visitor has selected. September 20, 2012
    the system works well and is quite useful. It has a great visual effect for virtual store. Only the manual is very basic, it took me two days to get to work, being necessary to open a ticket to better understand. I had the problem of conflict with another extension and we'll check what's happening. August 18, 2012
    The color switch in the category doesn't works. I get a fatal error or the hole other products gone. August 11, 2012
    I've had a great experience with Chad and this extension. The extension itself is excellent and Chad did some custom work for me which is spot on as well. Highly recommended. July 19, 2012
    hello, I love your application very much. Thanks for your development. I wonder if there are any way to upload all swatch images for all color attributes value? I have over one thousand colors. How can i upload swatch images for them? July 19, 2012
    I have looked through several reviews extensions and decided to purchase the ‘Pre-Select Colors Plus Swatches’ extension a week ago. Had some problems setting it up properly because of theme issues I had so I purchased the installation service. Support was great!! Chad logged in several times and fixed every issue I had. Now the extension works like a charm! Great job Chad!!!!! Thanks a ton, Nir July 19, 2012

    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.
