Color Swatch v5

Six years evolution of Color Swatches extensions by ExtensionsMall - Quality Guarantee

Color Swatch is an extension for configurable products that shows your customers how a product looks like in different colors, patterns or designs. Color Swatch works with all types of attributes (color, size, manufacturer…). It requires no additional scripts or plugins.

With Color Swatch extension you get a plugin which is easy to install and integrate without any specific PHP knowledge , which can be used together with Magento’s default drop down boxes on configurable products.

Color Swatch shows your product attribute options as swatches on configurable products. You can use Color Swatch for any type of attribute (size, manufacturer, pattern, etc.) and not just the color.

Aside from all this, Color Swatch changes the product images and prices as well as the more views images depending on the swatch selection.

It can be applied to multiple attributes of a single product where you can upload different swatch images for each of those attribute options. Setting up different swatch images for normal, hover, active and disabled state of attribute options is also possible, and swatch image size is configurable via Magento administration.

Also, pop up boxes are shown on swatch hover, with additional details of the swatch selection

    Does it apply on product filters?

    Hi There, I was just wondering if it also works if I filter options in the 'shop by' box. For example I have a filter with all the availiable colors. Lets say I choose yellow, will it only show the yellow products. With show, I mean also the correct 'yellow' product picture. Not just the product. Thanks!
    Asked by: casperk
    Hello, our extension can display only one attribute per product on catalog page. If we presume that you will set 'color' to be that attribute and use layered navigation to filter products, by default it will load page with configurable products. However it is possible modify our extension to show simple/assigned products for selected attribute option. Please contact us on our mail for further info:

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent support Best Support ever, i got a response within minutes !!!
    Date published: 2016-12-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Support The theme I had installed had a few conflicts with the extension, but support was fantastic. They responded almost immediately and consistently throughout the day until the problem was resolved. They worked with me for several days to iron out issues. The extension is very useful for utilizing multiple color and size variations on products. The support is the best I've ever received.

    Date published: 2016-08-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First rate developers and support This extension is very good and works exactly as described. It's a lot better than the default 1.9.2 Magento configurable swatches functionality. Managing the images is a breeze and you are also able to configure the extension to only show images for the currently selected color (or whatever other attribute option you choose to use). Installation is a manual process but this is no problem because if you have any issues with it the support is among the best support that I have experienced. A little coding was needed to get everything working with my theme but the developer got onto this and fixed it straight away, for no extra cost. I wish all customer support was as good as this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have Extension: Two Thumbs Up I was afraid if the extension was going to work with my theme ever, however, the developer has been very patient and prompt to solve all issues I had. The extension is a must-have for someone who really wants to make the website to look more professional and user friendly when you sell configurable products. I cannot say it was easy to comprehend in the first place but it's worth to spend some hours to achieve the level you'd like to want to. The developer's support war far beyond my expectation and you will not regret to buy this extension at all. Good job! Magento Ver.
