Visualize a variety of your product options with vivid swatches! Fast and easy-to-use, the Product Color Swatches extension lets you create swatches for configurable product options (color, material, manufacture) and demonstrate the exact view of your products in a couple of clicks. Just choose required images, upload and assign them to attribute values with our drag-and-drop feature and enjoy the result.

Features for store visitors:

  • Display swatches for specific attributes on product and category pages
  • Show attributes swatches in layered navigation
  • Show swatches in a pop-up window on mouse hover (on product and category pages)
  • Demonstrate the exact configurable product view according to selected attributes. A visitor can choose required product attributes and see the final product view without a page reloading (the AJAX technology is used)
  • Display out-of-stock items with crossed-out swatches (e.g. out-of-stock items of specific size are displayed with a crossed-out size swatch)

Features for administrators:

  • Use Drag-and-Drop to upload swatch images ( JPEG, PNG formats are supported)
  • Use mass swatch upload to save your time (unlimited number of swatches can be uploaded at once)
  • Use Drag-and-Drop to assign swatches to specific attribute values
  • Redefine attribute swatch just in one click - drop a new image to the area of the existing swatch you want to alter
  • Delete or restore swatches in one click
  • Specify swatch sizes for product and category pages
  • Specify swatch information to be displayed in layered navigation (only image, image and text)
  • Use product images as attribute swatches. If a product has only 1 attribute, you can use its images for attributes demonstration without the need to upload separate pictures
  • Upload as many images as you need - extension supports unlimited number of swatches

What’s new in version 1.1.0:

  • Upload as many images as you need - the extension supports unlimited number of swatches
  • Use Drag-and-Drop for mass images upload
  • Use Drag-and-Drop to assign images to swatches
  • Show product images as attribute swatches
  • Demonstrate swatches on category pages

Works for me

Review by Charles | Jul 4, 2014

I'm a beginner Magento user, but I had no issues setting up this module whatsoever. Easy to use, looks neat on the storefront. Recommended!

This swatch has a limit for the amount of colors you can upload. So beware!

Review by Beth | Jun 25, 2014

I really liked this swatch module initially but now I come to find out you can only upload a certain amount of swatches and once you go past that limit THATS IT!! You cannot load anymore!!! This is now causing a MAJOR PROBLEM on my clients site. No where on this extension does it mention you can only upload a certain amount of swatches which if they knew this problem existed I would NEVER have purchased this swatch.

How can an extension such as this have a quota on swatches? I am extremely upset about this. I hope that their support team will be able to solve this issue and I can continue with finishing up my clients website.

So if you have a store that has potentially more than 190+ swatches to upload you need to look somewhere else for a solution at this time.

A Color Swatch Module that Works

Review by Matt | Feb 25, 2014

This is a good, solid module that provides the basic functionality sought by a number of store owners. We have installed this several times for different clients and they have always been pleased with the easy with which it can be configured. aheadWorks has a great reputation for creating reliable modules.

Easy thing

Review by Mary | Dec 6, 2013

I'm not a pro in technical matters, but I was able to install and setup this ext on my own (well, ok, I had to turn to their chat service for some clarifications just once;). Everything is pretty straightforward, no issue or pitfalls worth mentioning.
My first plugin from AW, but I wll definitely explore their catalog further:)!

High Quality App

Review by Danny | Dec 5, 2013

We had switched to AW module after having tried a couple of similar solutions by other vendors.
The functionality offered is within the market standards - nothing really special, though all "must-have" features are covered.
Where the AW product really shines is the code quality. I had no issue installing this plugin, and haven't come across any problems after that.

Excellent solution for swatches

Review by Stuart | Nov 6, 2013

I had a slight issue with the install but this was my error and not the extension. Support very kindly helped me with this. All installed and resolved in less than 12 hours!

The extension works perfectly with any drop-down options and is very straight forward to set up and use. Also integrates perfectly with my custom theme (Ultimo) with no modifications required.

Recommend this extension (and company). Excellent all round. 10/10

Quite basic, but good

Review by Steve N | Oct 18, 2013

Good that Aheadworks have finally added such product to their catalog. We generally prefer using Aw modules in our projects for many reasons, the main certainly being the quality of both the extensions and post-sale service.
As for that particular plugin, it can't probably boast some exlusive features, the functionality is pretty standard. However, it does its job, and we can go with sacrificing some minor options for the sake of avoiding conflicts.

Fully satisfied

Review by Harry | Jul 26, 2013

This module is a must-have for any store with large portion of configurable items.
We've used this extension for our recently-opened clothing site, and it provide the exact features we were after.
