Set the order of the sorting options

Drag and drop sorting options in the order which is the most efficient for your web store. The sorting options will be displayed in the drop-down, in the order you specify. The shoppers will see the options that are most capable for your store at the top of the list.

Featured products block

Add featured products to any page

We believe you offer lots of high-quality, top products. The question is: how to make customers know them?

The extension provides you with a simple but efficient tool – featured products blocks. Flexible options allow you to create any number of blocks and insert them via widgets or CMS to any page. Moreover, you can choose a certain position for a block (Main content area, Main Content Bottom/Top, Sidebar Main, etc.)

Featured block

Improved usability with new sorting options

Sort products by lots of attributes

Sorting by sales, 'Bestsellers'

When customers have difficulties choosing the product, they tend to search for best sellers. They think, 'If this product is good for many other people, it will be good for me as well'. This is why sort by popularity option helps visibly increase your conversion rate by drawing attention to your webstore bestsellers.

Sorting by product creation date, 'New'

Many site visitors search for the newest, most trendy things. Help them browse the catalog more comfortable by implementing sort by newest option. In this case new products will be shown at the top. This option works especially well for fashion stores, mobile phone stores and other sites of the kind, where people always look for new stylish things.

Sorting by the 'Biggest Saving'

Display products based on the difference between regular price and special price. The bigger the difference - the higher the product is shown in the list. It will be extremely helpful during holidays, as people are used to getting discounts at the time. Customers will just look for a store that has better offers, so take a chance to highlight your specials.

Sorting by presence in wishlists, 'Now in Wishlists'

Things that other people have or want to have surely attract attention of others. This is especially true during holiday season, when everybody is searching for the best gifts to their friends. 'Now in Wishlists' shows products that are most frequent in wishlists. Customers will be eager to get them and will place more orders faster.

Sorting by the 'Most Viewed Products'

Obviously, views are generated a lot faster than orders. With most viewed products option you enable customers to find out what products are more popular even if there are not very many orders in your store yet.

Most viewed list
reviews count

Sorting by product rating and by the number of reviews, 'Top Rated' and 'Reviews Count'

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 feedback provided by their fellow customers.

Compatibility with Yotpo Reviews

As well as with the Magento default reviews, you can use a 'Reviews Count' feature with popular Yotpo Reviews extension. Let your customers have an access to more trustworthy reviews.

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 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.

Select sort orders for specific categories

The module enables to change sort orders on a per-category basis and even change the default sort order per category.

Display out-of-stock products at the end of list

It's better to display at the top products, which you can sell right away. Customer will still be able to see and search for out of stock products. If necessary, this feature can be disabled. Also this feature takes effect only for catalog pages, search results remain as are.

Show products with zero quantity at the end of the list

If you allow backorders, some products may have inventory status 'in stock', even if their quantity is zero. You can display such products at the end of the product list, when needed.

Set sorting by any of the new options as default

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

Additional helpful features

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.

Works with layered navigation

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

EE note

The extension supports MySQL Full-text search engine, Solr support will be added in the next versions.

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!

user-friendly tool
Easy to install with absolutely no issues. Great navigation tool that allows different types of sorting. I totally recommend Amasty to others. Really i love this company!
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'!
