Increase sales of configurable products
Shows most common attributes combination
When a customer gets to a page of any Magento configurable product, there are no options chosen and it can make him or her confused. Configurable Preselect is an appropriate tool to show some popular combination to customers at once. Of course, customers will be able to choose a different configuration when needed.
Give direct links to options of configurable products
For example you have product url http://your_site_url.com/product.phtml. Add '?sel=' and id of the simple product after the url to get a link like http://yoururl.com/product.phtml?sel=2. Or add '?sel=' and SKU of the simple product after the url to get a link like http://yoururl.com/product.html?sel=SKU. When a customer opens such link, the Magento configurable product page will display the simple product, id or sku of which is indicated in the link.
Shopping process simplification
Minimizes the number of mouse clicks
The default combination can be added by customers to cart with just one click. It is a great way to increase web shop usability.
Display all attributes of configurable product on page load
Lets say that configurable products in your store have 2 options: size and color. By default Magento doesn’t display the second option, while the first one is not selected. The new feature enables you to display both configurable options on page load.
Take care of your customers
The real price for combination will be displayed right away, not of the base product. It won’t baffle customers and they will make right decisions for combinations they need.
To make your product presentation even better, you can use this Color Swatches Pro extension.
