Questions before buying Advanced product Options

Interested in buying your extension and switch to your extension (from CJM Color selector extension) because yours has lot of features and appears to be flexible. I have few questions: 1. I have lots of simple and configurable products in my website. How do I setup and reuse configurable products to work with this extension. Do you have any demo that shows how it works for configurable products? 2. We have many color options (as many as 30options). Will this extension work without impacting site speed? Please see example product. 3. One of reviews says about limitation about large image size. Can you give more details about such limitations?

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by MageWorxCom

Advanced Product Options is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 115.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product Having used OpenCart in the past, I made the switch to Magento about 2 years ago. Whilst Magento is solid and very happy with the platform, it's this extension that is ultimately the biggest advantage to working with Magento. For large stores with 50k + products, this extension is an absolute must have. I simply can't imagine doing updates on product options is sets without using this extension. I'm so happy to never have to go back to the old days of reimporting CSV files when product options are updated. I rarely give product reviews, but Mageworx is worth the praise with this extension. Support has also been stellar...and this extension, specifically, is perhaps the most valuable and efficient asset to my sites.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support After an update of the module we faced some problems because of our special configuration, we got quick and nice support and are very happy!
Date published: 2017-01-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended This extension perfectly complements what Magento is lacking when it comes to custom product options. I'm so pleased with it, even though I'm only using 10% of the possibility that it offers. I'm running a tea store on and I had trouble with setting different weight options per product such as the amount of weight as well as the possibility to add tin packaging as an option. What's also amazing is that each option can have a separate weight and SKU assigned. This really made the processing of orders more efficient, and made sure the shipping prices during checkout are accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have extension for every Magento store It's a great extension backed up by an even better team. These guys are very responsive and applied special customizations for my store to fit my needs. They've went above and beyond what I needed done. I have a lot of extensions and Mageworx is by far the best team I've purchased from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Bespoke Items We wanted this to allow personalisation of certain products. With a variety of options that can be either/or/and. Once we figured out the parent child relationship and the dependents it works a dream. We had small issue which support fixed for us quickly. Great product and great support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $250 I've Spent in a While. Seriously. This extension is one of the biggest time saving tools I currently use. I can confidently say that this extension has saved me thousands of dollars. To put the figures in perspective my company has ~4,000 products, ~60% of those have a diverse set of custom options, many of which are very similar. Creating templates is very simple (But can still handle some relatively complex scenarios) Assigning products to them is even easier. But even better yet, applying changes can be done en-mass. After setting up a template and linking it to 400 products, I was able to make the change in one place and the rest was handled for me. I can't stress enough how handy this tool has been for me. Personally I think this should be a Magento standard. Finally, I want to make a special mention to the support I received when I had encountered an issue (extension conflict with Cart2Quote) The customer service was very friendly, quick to respond and more concerned with addressing my problem than trying to find a way to absolve themselves of responsibility. (When in reality, it wasn't their responsibility to fix how their extension functions with another third party plugin that I decided to include.) All around very pleased with my purchase and experience with Mageworx as a whole. Keep it up guys!
