Designing an ecommerce website comes with its own set of challenges and limitations, especially when it comes to linking product options and removing out-of-stock variants.
The more customized and user-friendly an ecommerce website is, the better it is for conversion optimization and brand sales. But these customization options, color swatches and automated product variant options are high-end features that most ecommerce software solutions either fail to provide or offer at a much higher rate.
This is where the enterprise ecommerce platform -- Shopify stands out. Thanks to the multifarious Shopify apps providing image/color swatches, merchants across the world now have the choice to replace drab dropdowns with automated variant image swatches for similar products in different colors and more!
Explore the world of Swatches with these Shopify Apps:
1. Variant Swatch King:
A one-stop destination, this app allows you to automatically link product options, showing the options available in combination with previously selections. It also lets you customize image swatches and assign the right variant images to each product variant with image swatch buttons.
Your customer can now preview all the available variant options for a product and find one they want. Control the way you want to showcase your product options -- as a dropdown menu, a simple button, variant image swatches, an image swatch or a color swatch. Remove, hide or show the Out-of-Stock Variants so customers never have to see ‘unavailable’ when they add a product to cart.
2. Swatches by Webyze:
Choose from this app’s multiple elegant color and image swatch styles to replace your boring dropdowns with swatches that match your site branding. You can auto-install this app without any coding while enjoying a variety of swatch themes, a friendly interface and a 7-day trial period. A must-try if you have a fashion or electronics store!
Get interesting with aesthetical and realistic variant image swatches that automatically convert dropdowns into image swatches with different color options, appearing when your customers click on a product picture. This easy-to-install app works on both product and collection pages.
4. Switch to Swatches:
Convert all your product color options to a clean and visually appealing swatch interface. Shopify provides free support to easily set up this app in your store. Choose from 9 different swatch layouts, variant images and names.
5. Easy Color Swatches:
From color, image, custom images to multi-color and text swatches for different product sizes, there are varied swatch types. Configure both individual and ‘global swatches’ for available multiple products that you can manage all at once.
All these apps align the colors and designs with your basic store theme and brand image. Shopify also provides support in case you have a store theme not supported by the platform. Needless to say, these options make the product page interfaces more user-friendly, adding to the overall user experience and the number of buyers.
