Product Compare Extension
« on: November 05, 2014, 08:11:37 am »
"Add to compare" extension can be placed on both category pages and details pages. Once the item is added to compare, Ajax will make it fly to the comparison popup and the button will be highlighted. So, customers will be reminded about item they’ve added, preventing repeat actions again.

In the comparison window, if an item is not meant to be there, the user easily removes it. Finally, the most suitable product will be added to cart. A notification will appear in front of eyes.

In the backend, admin can configure the positions of the compare tab on the left side or the right side. Also, maximum of products compared can be specified. Choosing the color whenever hover the button as well as an item’s added is just simple. All options become easy to use in the backend, no coding required
