Great extension Works exactly as described. Easy to implement and to configure. July 17, 2014
Useful extension Just what we needed now customers can shop by brand name on our site too. |We have had a few issues with the brands button not showing in the navigation bar but the support is sorting this with an hour of support time paid for. This was due to our theme having a unique and complicated navigation layout. July 11, 2014
Highly recommended The extension works great for my store. My customers can now easily browse product by brands. This helped to increase my sales. Support was very helpful and fast. May 8, 2014
Great feature! I was looking for a solution to sort by brand like, as I'm a drop shipper, and this worked out perfectly. In addition to the standard features, I customized my product page to display the brand description, brand name, and also related product by brand using a related extension. I love this extension :) Great installation support and updates as well! January 10, 2014
Works great! This exension works as supposed. No bugs nor difficulties setting it up. The license could have unlimited products attached to the license. Can be expensive if you have a lot of products in your shop. December 11, 2013
great extension Great extension, easily to use and fast customer response. September 23, 2013
Makes Serious Troubles with the License This extension has an extremely serious trouble with the licensing... for more than 1 time we changed things that are not related to this extension BUT the whole site required to be reverted to the recent backup due to a fatal error made by this extension... SERIOUS TROUBLE.... DON'T RECOMMEND AT ALL April 25, 2013
Bug In This Module the session dosen't work on the page of the brand, even in store demo. I bought this module and reported the problem however the problem was not corrected and did not give me support. March 27, 2013
Great Extension and customer service Great extension and an amazing customer service! Thanks guys! February 19, 2013
This extension is just GREAT! It gives you amazing possibility to create brand pages and makes your site navigation user-friendly. Their support is AAA++. Why does everybody complaint about their license options? If it's too expensive for you, don't buy it. Do you also complain in a mall when you cannot afford purchasing of expensive TV? :) LoL. All my issues with custom template were fixed within couple of hours. Thank you Guys, I will buy more stuff from you! Cheers from Switzerland :) February 8, 2013

If I have an existing store with categories and products, is it possible, using this module, to refine products by brand, based on their existing categories? E.g. if my existing category tree contains the category Electronics, with two sub categories Televisions and Computers, is it possible to show all products with the brand 'Sony' in 'Televisions' ? or all 'Sony' Computers?

Thank you for your interest in our extensions.
Looks like the scenario you described can be achieved using the magento means. You just need to have Layered Navigation enabled on category pages. In this case you will have an extra navigation that allows to narrow down the category by several parameters like price, manufacturer (brand) and etc.
With our Shop be Brands extension you can have brands pages that include all products from all categories for one brand on the one page. At the same time the extension allows using magento Layered Navigation on brand page (and even our Layered Navigation Pro extension) so you can narrow down the brand products by categories, price, color and etc. E.g. you can browse all Sony products and then, if you want to browse computers only you choose "computers" in navigation on Sony page and you get Sony computers only.
You may submit support ticket at our site in case in case you have any further questions or would like to get more details and demo links.

This is not a place to address requests especially when you need an answer ASAP.
For any support questions please submit support tickets at our site directly.
In this case you just need to increase php variable and make sure your changes are applied.
