Magento Shop By Brand Overview

The Shop By Brand Magento extension allows you to create new brands and connect products to them. So your customers have a possibility to find the necessary manufacturer with its items or recognize the brand that the required product belongs to.

The process of brands creating is very easy and convenient for Magento store owners. Define some general information of the brand (title, status, priority); attach images to be displayed as brand logo and icon; select products of the manufacturer and enjoy the results.

Imagine the seismic shift in sales and customer loyalty after helping your visitors in finding what they are really interested in.


  • Brands in the layered navigation
    The extension allows your merchants to filter products by brands in the left-bar navigation.
  • Brands menu
    You can add the brands menu to the frontend and let your visitors see the required brand with its products just in one click.
  • All brands page
    The Shop By Brand extension for Magento allows you to create a separate page containing all existed brands in the store.
  • Brands auto-generation (NEW)
    Since version 1.4.0, you can generate brands automatically within one click from the backend. Brands will be created based on specific product attribute values. Each attribute value is equal to a new brand. Products with attributes will be assigned to new brands automatically.
  • Limit the number of brands in the sidebar (NEW)
    The module allows you to configure which manufacturers to display in the frontend. If the option is enabled, the brand will be shown in the sidebar.
  • Filter products of specific brand (NEW)
    After opening the required brand page, customers can see products assigned to it and find the necessary item using native Magento layered navigation.
  • Prioritizing
    You have a possibility to define the priority of every brand, so the most important ones will be displayed first. If the priority is not set up, brands will be sorted in the order of creation.
  • Ability to display brand name and/or image (logo) in the frontend
    With the Shop By Brand module, you are able to upload logo to every brand. Just define whether to show brand name and/or brand image on products pages and in the left-bar navigation. After clicking the logo or name, you will be redirected to the brand page where you can view all the products of the manufacturer.
  • Show other items of the brand on the product page (NEW)
    The extension gives you a possibility to suggest other items of the same brand to customers by inserting a special "More From Same Brand" block via CMS or layout into the product page.
  • Handy products assigning to the brand
    You can connect products with the required manufacturer while editing or creating a new brand. Just filter items by necessary parameters and tick off the required ones. Moreover, you can assign a product to a brand separately in product settings.
  • Main product types support

Review by John | Jun 22, 2017

These folks go over and above my expectations. I had an update to my template as well as updates to Aheadworks extensions. Aheadworks fixed the issue with the extensions right away and when I told them I had an issue on my Success page, they fixed that as well (even though it had nothing to do with their extensions.). This was so refreshing.
Thank you Aheadworks!

a Must have one

Review by Ahmed | Nov 30, 2014

since open cart and more supports this feature by default i was surprised knowing that it is not available in magento ce by default so i searched for the best one and here I am
I have found it

Works as expected

Review by Eva | Aug 16, 2014

A must-have extension that is easy to install and works very well.

Best Brands Extension

Review by Richard | Jun 13, 2014

I'm not sure how this isn't a default Magento feature. I know they want to keep the core somewhat baseline, but brands are not really specific to one niche or anything. Anyway, I tried a few other extensions on the magentocommerce marketplace and they either didn't do what I needed, or broke my store.

Shop by Brand by aheadWorks is the first one that worked, and also the first purchase I made from aheadWorks. If you are reading this and need a brand extension - get this one. You won't be sorry.

I am looking forward to being able to sort brands A-Z. We have over 50 brands and the customer-centric thing to do would be display them in a list that saves time. Other than that, it works perfect!

Everything we need

Review by Alan | Apr 14, 2014

We bought this tool a year ago and still have no problems. Recently we have discovered that it would be nice to have navigation panel on the brands page. We requested such functionality from aheadWorks. And here we are! The feature has been implemented in the last version. Moreover, it didn’t cost us anything due to their support period conditions.

Excellent Shop by Brand extension

Review by Tanner | Apr 11, 2014

One of the best Magento extensions of that functionality. There was no issues during the installation and configuration is simple. The result is obvious and branding starts working instantly. Recommended!

Powerful solution

Review by Harri | Nov 25, 2013

My experience with the extension is good. What I like most is that after you configure the module and connect items with brands (which was easy) you can show brands’ logos on prod pages redirecting customers to the full brand catalog. Recommend to all websites that need a brand page.

A simple extension

Review by GazzaF | Nov 18, 2013

One of the best things about the Shop by Brand extension by aheadWorks is that it is really easy to use. I had no trouble figuring out how to configure the extension and get the most out of it for my business. In addition, the aheadWorks team was very friendly when I contacted me and were able to provide addition support and suggestions on how to best use the extension when I contacted them. Great job guys.


Review by Kathleen | Nov 8, 2013

Great extension...still can't fathom how it's not a standard magento feature, but Aheadworks have provided a great solution.

Simplifies shopping for customer

Review by Greg | Sep 14, 2013

This module is a must have solution for me. Since we sell products from many famous trademarks Shop By Brand simplifies the shopping process and makes it easy for customers to recognize the brand of the product they r looking for.

Fills a huge flaw

Review by Johan | Jul 13, 2013

I am amazed you can't do this in default Magento. It is a must have when promoting brands in your store. A lot of our customers shop based on brands and this gives us a better way to market the brands.
