Rated 1 out of 5 by Not working on custom themes! My experience with this product and producer was very disappointing and unprofessional. I bought this extension one week ago with the one hour support, which was meant to "include" the installation time and that I could have some more support. After I bought the extension for 144$ it came out that the hour of support was completely used by the producer to install the extension on my site, not leaving any time for extra support. Altought they didn’t report me any problems, however, it was a very bad surprise when I discovered by myself that the extension installed by theme was completely not compatible with my Magento Theme. Because of this fact I could not use the extension at all. So I contacted them, asking if there was something possible to do to solve the problem, and, in return they proposed me to buy some more support time for them to fix it. Furthermore, the extensions don’t allow to assign more manufacturers to a product. I didn’t know I can’t claim it was their fault. However, in order to make this possible they first proposed an extra work for about 24hours support (around 1500$), asking me "only" 9 hours of support for $530. Since I refused, they proposed me 6 hours for $470. At this point, I finally refused, saying to them that they could uninstall their extensión. I also asked to be refunded, but they just refunded me 60$ of the 144$ which I paid. So, at the end of all the story, I've lost 80$ for a completely useless extension and I even had to face the unpolite and provokative answers of the producer. December 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Excellent module, do the job right. Fast and efficient support! Highly recommended November 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great extension Works exactly as described. Easy to implement and to configure. July 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great feature! I was looking for a solution to sort by brand like Zappos.com, 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

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?

Answer: 
Hello,

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.

Answer: 
Hello,

Thank you for your interest in our extensions.
We have never tested AITOC Shop By Brands for compatibility with Webkul Multi Vendor Module so we can not say if they are compatible or not.
You may purchase and try. If there are any incompatibility issues they can be fixed by our support team for the prepaid support time. Please note that with extension comes with 30 prepaid support minutes.
Anyway you have 30 days money back in case you are not satisfied with extension.
