An extremely usable way of configurable products selection

Get rid of customers’ hesitation in making a purchase

It's beyond dispute that a website needs to be intuitive and easy to reach success in today's highly-competitive business environment. Provide customers with all the user-friendliness they can get for selection of configurable products!

Give customers a clear view of the products

Good images are absolutely self-explanatory and fast to understand, and often don't need to be translated. Buyers can zoom and see every item detail. This way customers get a picture of exactly what they've chosen. Make it easy for shoppers to buy the right products and they will respond with more orders.

NEW! Automatically specify price difference for associated simple products

If you buy a great number of associated items with changed price, you don’t need to spend hours updating price difference for configurable products. Thanks to the extension it will be made automatically.

Present configurable products using images

Use images for selection of product options

You can enable images for picking configurable products options. Just upload images for all product attributes.

Apply images of associated items for attribute swatches

The extension allows using resized images of associated simple products for attribute swatches. Thanks to this option you can save much of your time. Easily create color or size swatches for your configurable products.

Lightbox and product zoom effects

Enhance customer experience with lightbox and zoom effects. Let them closely examine item details and give a clear view of full-size product picture.

Indicate out of stock products

Thanks to our extension you can display the swatches of out of stock simple products as crossed out. This handy option allows customers to make their choice at once.

Enable selection of product options on category and search results pages

  • Use attribute icons on category pages.
  • Allow buyers to choose product options and add items to cart right from the category page.
  • Enable reloading configurable product pictures when some configuration is selected on category and search result pages.
  • NEW! AJAX mode speeds up category pages loading.
  • NEW! Reindex option notably enhances category pages performance.

Cool visual effects

Automatically reloaded product picture and description due to AJAX

The extension is able to automatically load pictures and descriptions of the associated simple products selected by clients. If customers choose a certain size and color, the image and description of the appropriate simple product will be shown to them.

Improved visual options

Zoom and Lightbox effects are applied both for default configurable product pictures and for pictures loaded on the basis of customer selections.

Auto-picking attributes if only one is accessible

The module automatically chooses the custom option in case only one of attributes is accessible. For example, there is a T-shirt that comes in three sizes. When a client picks a size swatch with only one color available, the module will automatically pick the color.

Default image for simple products with no images

If you have no pictures for some options of configurable products, the default image of configurable product will be used.

Know all the product picture features

  • Zoom of certain item details.
  • Adjustable thumbnail picture size.
  • Lightbox option is provided to give a nice view of full size images.
  • Possibility to reset selected product options.

NEW! Take advantages of attribute images

  • Ability to use as many image attributes as you need.
  • Adjustable attribute pictures on product and category pages.
  • Possibility to change tooltip specifications.
  • Zoom effect for swatches just on hover.

  • 100% Open Source — Easy To Customize.

    Will this work with bundle products also?

    I would like to know if this works with bundle products based on customer options. ( ie. base product is a belt, customer could add a pouch to the belt, and the picture would now show it on the belt. Customer adds a holster, and picture shows all both items on belt...or any combination thereof.)

    Can i show the images in a pop up

    If i have many image options to choose , can i show it in pop up format rather than what u r allowing Also can different price be set for different images i.e. if i have a cap with red color cap for 50$ and blue one for 60$ , so can i have different price as per images also can i only have dropdowns for the attributes or can i have radio buttons too??
    Asked by: zainabsb88
    HI, zainabsb88! The module can't show it in pop up format bu default, you can customize it if needed. Yes, different price can be set for different images. When you edit the product there is a tab 'Associated products' . There you can define the price for each color. Only dropdowns are available for the attributes.

    Rated out of 5 by from Awesome extension. We were in a mess trying to figure this out on our own. At first we just used product options but they weren't tracking individual SKUs with our inventory updates and leading to cancelled orders. Finding this extensions was a true time and money saver. We had one issue (using it on Enterprise) and the support was great, fixed within 5 minutes after I got them the login information.
