Improved Sorting extension for Magento 2 is a user-friendly navigation tool, meant to enrich your customers’ shopping experience. It allows potential clients to search for the right product in a very easy and convenient way. The possibility to sort products by rating, best sellers and other attributes enables buyers to find exactly what they need in record time and without any difficulty.

Let your customers browse catalog or categories by any comfortable parameters and get more orders. Provide shoppers with additional sorting options and make searching process both convenient and beneficial. Draw customers’ attention to your best sellers or new collections and increase conversion rate by automatically pushing your featured products to the top.
Drag and drop sorting options in the order which is the most efficient for your webstore. The sorting options will be displayed in the drop-down according to the specified order. Moreover, you can easily disable sorting by any value. With the improved options, the shoppers will not miss a single product. Thus, you will have an opportunity to promote your poorly sold products without any campaigns.
Many site visitors search for the newest, popular and the most trendy things. Help them browse the catalog and find the necessary products easier by implementing noticeable and understandable titles. Just set the title for the sorting option that your target audience will be interested in and increase your webstore usability.
When shopping, people are looking for product information, which they can trust. There's nothing they will trust more than rating and reviews, as this is a feedback provided by their fellow customers. Due to the compatibility with the popular Yotpo Reviews extension, easily collect customer reviews and display them on site pages to help buyers with purchase decisions.
Things that other people have or want to have surely attract the attention of others. This is especially true during the holiday season, when everybody is searching for the best gifts to their friends. Obviously, views are generated a lot faster than orders. With the most viewed products option you allow customers to find out what products are more popular even if there are not best sellers in your store yet.
Let customers quickly find the desired products with a useful sorting by price: ‘low to high’, ’ high to low’ or ‘biggest saving’. This option makes the sorting process maximally convenient by giving more precise results on the products price differentiation. Enhance your customers loyalty by highlighting the difference between regular price and special price and improving their purchasing experience.
Set up the unique default sorting and highlight certain products by moving them to the top of the list. Increase conversions by attracting customers’ attention to the most popular products on the search results and category pages. With the extension, you can specify the primal method and the following two algorithms.
With the Improved Sorting module it is possible to change, reorder and disable sorting options on a per-category basis. Customize sorting orders for specific categories or set the preferable default listing to promote your better performing products from each category.
Display out-of-stock products and items with zero quantity at the end of list not to mislead your customers. Visitors will still be able to see and search for out of stock products, but at the top it's better to display products, which you can sell right away. It can be especially useful if you allow backorders and some products may have inventory status 'in stock', even if their quantity is zero.


The extension provides you with a simple but efficient tool – featured products blocks. Add conditions for products selection and receive highly targeted offers for each particular page. Flexible options allow you to create any number of blocks and insert them via widgets or CMS to any page. Due to the automation options based on sorting, you can display various featured products:

  • Best Sellers
  • Most Viewed
  • Now in Wishlists
  • Top Rated
  • New
  • and other

Promote top rated cross-sells on product pages

Boost your bestsellers right in the shopping cart

Advanced catalog management features

Manually manage the order of products

Improved Sorting for Magento 2 allows both automatic and manual ordering products in bestsellers and most viewed lists. If you need to move some items up to sell them quicker, you can do it in a few clicks.

Ability to disable sorting options

You can disable any of the new sorting options both at the catalog and category level.

Optional indexing

The indexing mechanism ensures your category pages are loaded fast even if you have a very large catalog.

Ability to have descending order by default

In Magento all sort by options have ascending order. So if, for example, you would like to display most expensive items at the top, you can not do it. The extension enables you to display items from high to low.

Works with layered navigation

The extension enables customers to apply all sorting options to product lists generated by layered navigation.

EE note

Good, but be careful with configurations
Our configurable products went down the list. As the support explained the problem was with qty-based filtering. If you sell configurable products, they have ‘0’ quantity, so don’t determine that the product is out of stock based on quantity. All the rest is fine. The extension is very simple and helpful in making the catalog user-friendly.
simple and worked well
This is simple and user friendly tool. A little bit costly but it worked well and free lifetime updates. This is my choice and i like it!

Customer service is very good
Customer service is very good. It took them just one day to resolve my issue. Also, the extension is very user friendly and gives alternative search options to my customers.

One of the best Amasty extension for M2
I like that this extension is rather customizable. It's very convenient to specify the attribute of "best sellers" and "most viewed" sortings to your own needs. Moreover, the code is well-written and works without any bugs. Thank you, guys, love your extensions!
Easy to install and configure
Being a Magento newbie I was afraid it would be too complicated to install and configure the module. This one appeared to be an excellent example of neat navigation and smooth installation. Keep on codin'!
