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!


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!


  • 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.

    Best magento swatch module and excellent support There are plenty of Magento swatch modules on the market, but this one is clearly the best. It's versatile, so you can use color codes or swatch images; and its backend settings gives you plenty of control on presentation. Support was terrific - Chad was really responsive and happy to help. Any additional custom work required is very reasonably priced as well. It's quickly becoming the swatch extension that I recommend to our clients as it has features, stability and extendability that other Magento swatch modules simply don't offer. Great and highly recommended. June 18, 2013
    really good extension... works how it should and the installation service to a custom theme were done in 2 days.... well done June 3, 2013
    Don't Expect Any Professional Support or Professionalism I wouldn't know about usefulness or functions as desired but I can unequivocally say the developer support is horrible. I wanted to support a developer in my home country but that was a big mistake. I should have heeded the warnings from the other negative reviews and bought a different extension, because now I need to buy another one anyway. The developer Chad was rude and not helpful at all. All I wanted was for him to install the extension. After two days of no response I e-mailed him today to follow up, and I even offered to pay for a block of time should there need to be some tweaks to the extension, but he didn't respond to my e-mails and when he did it was very vague one sentence answer. When I asked for a quick phone call, because his e-mails said "sent from iPhone" he told me "No Sorry I can't". Can't say enough about his lack of professionalism. Very sad. May 31, 2013
    Great Features and good support! The extension works as shown but custom work is required to ensure that it works with your theme. Chad is the developer and the only support I believe, so if you want the extension installed and working with in hours, it isn't going to happen. If you believe you require custom work, there is a $25 Installation/Custom Install Fee that I would recommend you purchase because that type of support is not included in the price of this extension. I would like the option to turn off individual Color Swatches on certain catalogue products but there is a work around using a different Attribute or Attribute Set. It took about 4 days for Chad to complete the integration into my theme and to fix any conflicts but overall very happy with the extension. May 30, 2013
    Works Great! Not sure what people are talking about. This plugin works great. No support needed. It might help if you read the instructions and know a little bit how this stuff works. May 22, 2013
    Terrible Support If you want this extension make sure you really know magento well or have a solid magento developer on staff. Any help is almost non-existant. Responses to support request are so slow ( several days ), then the response is useless and not even close to helpful. Don't even bother paying for the services either. Once you pay your $100, nothing happens. You keep requesting services you paid or you'll cancel the charge so they jump in and do the bare minimum claiming they met they obligation. In other words, we got your money too bad. May 18, 2013
    A joke only, not worth it Okay, after doing the research I decided to buy this plugin (Unlimited license as I have a few websites) I installed this plugin, does not work on product description page, no problem, tried on 2nd domain, same thing, then 3rd domain and the same thing. Contacted seller and got a one line reply after 24 hours which obviously was very unhelpful. So sent another help email and received another reply after another 24 hours which again had no meaning (just telling me that plugin has jquery conflict. Well I know that, whats the solution.) So then the seller asked that to get help, I need to order installation. Else there is no support. Only. Well I even placed the order for installation, and since then its been 2 days now and there is no reply whatsoever. The only method is email and obviously its chad who decides which email to reply and which to not. So you do the math. No support, no contact number, no manual on how to use the plugin, no one seems to answer the questions posted here as well and you can see the hefty price tag yourself :-) May 17, 2013
    GREAT! Great colour swatches that work a treat and great support from Chad. So just one word to sum up... GREAT! April 9, 2013
    excellent Plugin! does exactly as described and the support is the best I have experienced! March 29, 2013
    Highly trusted and recommended. We received timely support from developer on a conflict with a third-party extension and added customizations were executed accurately and ahead of schedule. Highly trusted and recommended. March 20, 2013
