We believe you are tired of adding products to the categories manually. And we have a great tool to offer you. Add Magento 2 automatic categories plugin to associate products with the categories dynamically, basing on multiple conditions.

What is a dynamic category in Magento 2 ?

Sales categories in Magento 2 are dynamic when products can be attached to them automatically on the basis of product attributes described with the help of specific merchandising rules and conditions. Relying on them, the extension drags products from the backend to the frontend. Dynamic categories simplify catalog management reducing the need to assign products to categories manually. Magento 2 Dynamic Products is useful for sales, seasonal deals and smaller marketing campaigns.

Level up your catalog management

No need to assign new products to the categories manually each time you create them

Set (or import) conditions to display and update products in the category automatically

Easily preview the added products in the backend and use advanced sorting options

Create merchandising rules

With the extension, create conditions, that are based on the product attributes. Thus, with Magento 2 smart categories, you can specify exactly what aspects trigger the display of particular products. The products will be retrieved to the frontend automatically, and precisely.

Set advanced conditions

To make the conditions more flexible, the extension offers a variety of custom rules. Create conditions, basing on the maximum and minimum price, or on the is new and in stock product attributes.

Import conditions

Preparing conditions for each new category can be time-consuming, so there is an option to import already existing Magento 2 category rules from other automatic categories.

Automatic category

Out-of-the-box Magento doesn't allow admins to work with the categories at a good level. Each time you create new products, you have to assign them manually, one by one, setting their order. Employing dynamic categories, e.g. Magento 2 sales category, can greatly simplify your routine.

Products sorting

There are several ways for the ordering of your product listings. Automatically sort by price and name, in ascending or descending mode, either sort by newest to boost sales in particular Magento category.

Search for products by SKU or name

On top of the products merchandising listing there is a search box to find particular products by their SKU or name within the current automatic category selection.

Use Merchandiser For Regular Categories

Easily sort and preview products from any category of your webstore. Products’ merchandising is available as for dynamic categories so for regular ones.


When managing categories, you can easily preview the product listing and use a handy drag-and-drop option to place the items as it is needed.

Pin products to top

According to your promo strategy, push the desired products to the top with UX-friendly button. Fix products in particular position on the catalog page with Pin button.

Ensures that products are rightly mapped to our category
Siddharth R
We do lots of autopilot stuffs and this module ensures that rules are in place and products are rightly mapped to our category. I like everything about this extension. If you want your store category to be organised in a better way from human error, you must have this extension as configuring rules is a one time job and anyone can add product and this extension maps the product to category on its own.
