How does the extension work?

Easily create a magazine by choosing a template, adding pages and selecting a category for it. Multiload feature and highly customizable book settings will help to quickly create visually attractive books fast, which will satisfy any taste. After creating a book its thumbnail will be displayed among product images. The magazine pops up or opens on a separate page, where you can flip over the pages, download attached PDF files, listen to sounds and watch videos.

Every book has: clear navigation, table of contents and thumbnails so customers could easily and quickly look through the content.

Flexible settings

Display a book as a thumbnail or link

There are 3 book display options – as a thumbnail among product images, as a direct link to a separate page with a book on it and as a pop up window. You can test all the options to find out which one gets your store more conversions.

You can create any template you want using our 4 layout options: 1 column, 2 columns with left bar, 2 columns with right bar and 3 columns. We also provide you with predefined templates.

Video can also be added to a page but only by itself, without any images or text. It’s up to you to decide whether to iInclude video files or YouTube / Vimeo links.

Correct content display is a mandatory point in product presentation. This is why we added resolution details feature. You can create any book resolution you want, so it will give you a chance to create highly customizable book appearance.

Multiload feature

Upload images in bulk for fast book creation. There are 2 options: you can upload a file directly or you can use a directory for this purpose. If you choose the second option you’ll be able to delete the source file from a directory after upload. After uploading a file, choose general title for the pages and the book is created.

Making Flash Flipping Book from PDF

Attach PDFs which will be available for download from the book itself. The extension doesn't convert PDF files to .jpg or other graphical formats. So you need to make images from PDF and then use them to create a book. Also it is not possible to insert a PDF as one of book pages.

Fancy catalog
This extension is a real catch for our apparel store as we add new collections every month and let customers see them like in a magazine online as well as download them. It took much time to create the first book and configure the settings but now when I know all the aspects, I create the books quickly. Thanks!
good but takes time to set everything up
the extension works good as soon as you dig into the settings. I needed support assistance to set everything up and also we had a compatibility issue with our theme but again I wrote to the support and everything was fixed

so it takes time and also you should prepare all the images and stuff, but eventually the flipping book looks very good and loads fast. we use this module to showcase the new arrivals with a photoshoot. we tested the pages and the ones with the flipping book had a slightly better conversion than those with just uploaded pics.

I suggest making better user guides so we could read it and set the extension up without support assistance
