Visual Merchandiser for Magento 2

Employ a wide range of options to manage product listing of the catalog pages in various ways:

  • Drag-and-drop sorting
  • Multiple ordering options
  • Rules & Conditions
  • Virtual Categories

Enable Automatic Category

To configure the extension, go to Admin Panel → Catalog → Categories → and select the category you want to make automatic (dynamic).

Automatic Category - to enable the functionality of the extension, set to Yes.

Once you enable the Automatic Category, the Product Conditions and Products Merchandising sections will be added.

  • After you switch the category to Automatic mode, a default selection of products in the category will be replaced with the selection of all the virtual products of the store.
  • Set Product Conditions to generate the desired selection.
  • Note, that after you Save this automatic category with a newly generated selection, you will not be able to roll back to the default selection of this category.
  • Note, that if later you set the Automatic Category option to No, this category will not retrieve new products by specified conditions anymore. It will remain with the current selection of the products.

Store Views

  • If you have various stores and you want to promote a particular product the same way on all of them, you don't need to configure this separately for each of your store views. Switch to All Store Views to configure the default store.
  • If you need to arrange a category only for particular store view, switch to this store in the Store View section and uncheck Use Default settings.

Product Conditions

In the Product Conditions section, you can set the list of conditions (or conditions combination). Basing on these conditions, the extension retrieves the products to the automatic category automatically.

Once you set the conditions, click the Apply Conditions button. Go to Products Merchandising section to see the products that are automatically retrieved by the applied conditions.

Import Conditions

Import conditions from - To import the conditions of one particular automatic category to another, click a dropdown and select the needed automatic category, which conditions you want to reproduce. The conditions will be retrieved to the current automatic category, afterwards you can modify them.

Products Merchandising

Products merchandising is available for all categories, including dynamic and ordinary ones.

Sort - Select from the dropdown the preferable way of automatic ordering of the product listing.

Available options:

  • Move out of stock to bottom
  • Newest products first
  • Name: Ascending
  • Name: Descending
  • Price: Ascending
  • Price: Descending

Enlarge the sorting options with the Magento 2 Improved Sorting extension. Due to the synergetic work of these 2 modules, you're able to sort products by 'Top Rated', 'Most Viewed', 'Best Sellers', 'Biggest Saving', 'Reviews Count' and 'Now in Wishlists'.

Search Products - Find products within one current automatic category selection by SKU or name. Employ a search box at the top of the products merchandising listing.

Drag-and-drop the items the way that is aligned with your current marketing needs.

Move to Top - simply click the button to send a particular product to the first position in the product listing.

Once you drag a particular product, its mode is switched to Manual and it is “pinned” to a particular location. Which means it will remain in the same position even after the automatic sorting is applied.

For your convenience, the number of products per page in the admin panel equals the number of products customers see on the frontend. Thus, you will exactly understand which products will be displayed to customers on each page and in what order.
