Very often it is difficult to predict which products would become more popular and sell better. At the same time it is well-known that a few popular products bring more revenue than all the rest ones. Then why not help your cash cows generate even more profit? With Amasty's Improved Sorting product sales and ratings will automatically get them to the top. Also you can manually manage the order of products for some options and create necessary featured product block. It's literally a must-have addon, available in all major web-stores.
In addition to sales and rating, the extension offers a lot of other great options, such as sorting by savings, number of reviews, presence in wishlists, product creation date, quantity of products. All these criteria are important, as each person has individual preferences, when it comes to choosing products. The new options are available both on category and on search results pages.
The extension allows to create product blocks using the sorting options - blocks with best-sellers, most-viewed products, top rated and so on. When used at category pages, the blocks show products from the category they are displayed in or from the one you specify for the block.
Improved Sorting will give each customer an option to display the products in the order, which suits him or her best. More user-friendly site for customers - more orders for you, everybody wins.
Sorting by savings, display name 'Biggest Saving'.
You may offer great deals, however they don't work your business when customers can't find them. This option displays products based on the difference between regular price and special price. The bigger the difference - the higher the product is shown in the list. It will be very popular while holidays, as people are used to getting discounts during such periods. Customers will just look for a store that has better offers, so don't miss the chance to properly show your specials.
Sorting by sales, 'Bestsellers'.
Each store highlights its bestselling products, as high sales demonstrate that a product is great. For many people this makes choosing the right product a lot easier. They will think, 'If this product is good for many other people, it will be good for me as well'. You can specify the period, for which the sales are counted, for example last 100 days.
Sorting by product creation date, 'New'.
When a customer chooses this option, new products are shown at the top. Many site visitors like to see what's new, because people like owning new products. This option works especially well for fashion stores, mobile phone stores and other sites of the kind, where people always look for new trendy things. You can use a custom date attribute for managing the order of product display for this option.
Sorting by rating and by the number of reviews, 'Top Rated' and 'Reviews Count'.
When shopping, people are looking for product information, which they can trust. There's nothing they will trust more than rating and reviews, as this is feedback provided by their fellow customers.
Sorting by the number of product views, 'Most Viewed'.
This option is very useful for new sites, when there are not very many orders. Views are generated a lot faster and you will enable customers to find out what products are more popular. You can specify the period, for which the views are counted, for example last 100 days.
Sorting by presence in wishlists, 'Now in Wishlists'.
Many people buy things, which other people have or want to have. Also best-selling products may be difficult to get in holiday season. 'Now in Wishlists' will show products that are most frequent in wishlists - people will be afraid to miss the opportunity to get them and will place orders faster.
Sorting by the amount of products, 'Quantity'.
This type of sorting is useful for wholesalers, who buy products in large quantities. Now it will be easy for them to find out which products have the most stock.
Create featured product blocks based on sorting options.
Now you have an opportunity to add a sidebar block with most viewed products or top block with bestselling products and so on. For the blocks you can use templates provided with the extension or create your own ones. Also you can insert the product blocks to any Magento page. In the blocks you can show products from the category they are displayed in or from any category you specify. You can create featured product blocks of bestsellers, most popular products and so on. Please see the demo for examples of such blocks.
Manually manage the order of products in Bestsellers and Most Viewed lists.
The extension lets you automatically order products based on the sales amount or number of views. If you would like to manually move some products up in the bestsellers and most viewed lists to sell them quicker, this is also possible.
Ability to have descending order by default.
In Magento all sorting options have ascending order. So if, for example, you would like to display most expensive items at the top, you can not do it. The extension enables you to display items from high to low.
Display out of stock products at the end of the product list.
It's better to display at the top products, which you can sell and make money on. Customer will still be able to see and search for out of stock products. If necessary, this feature can be disabled. Also this feature takes effect only for catalog pages, search results remain as are.
Show products with zero quantity at the end of the list.
If you allow backorders, some products may have inventory status 'in stock', even if their quantity is zero. You can display such products at the end of the product list, when needed.
Set sorting by any of the new options as default.
You can make any of the new sorting options default both at the catalog and category level.
Ability to disable sorting options.
You can disable any of the new sorting options both at the catalog and category level.
The indexing mechanism ensures your category pages are loaded fast even if you have a very large catalog.
The extension supports MySql Fulltext search engine, Solr support will be added in the next versions.
