The extension is a part of Aheadworks Small Business Kit – a set of extensions for Magento 2 offered at a special price and bringing the most demanded functionality at storeowner's disposal.

Shop by Brand extension for Magento 2 allows creating dedicated brand pages, with logo, description and banners. The brands can be created from the available product attributes or from the new attributes, making the use of 'manufacturer' attribute a viable option. When a set of brands is created the storeowner can manually assign products to required brands either one-by-one or via mass actions. The brand pages will then list all products belonging to it, just like in a regular catalog page. In addition, the product pages of a particular brand can have a brand logo and a description displayed in a number of locations.

Customers trust brands. A trustworthy brand can sell itself and any of its products. With Shop by Brand extension, the storeowners can introduce new brands to the scene and increase customer awareness, or let customers shop for the items of their favorite brand, increasing loyalty. Customers do not want any shirt, they want Zara, they do not want any purse, they want Prada. And having come for a purse of a favorite brand they can end up with a bag to match.


Business Value

Shop by Brand extension comes ready to promote any items and increase brand loyalty:

  • Let the products sell themselves – a popular brand is a solid motivation when the deal comes to sales. A trustworthy brand acts better than a friend's recommendation.
  • Increase loyalty – with the help of 'Featured brands' functionality, new brands can be represented to scene more smoothly;
  • Get additional sales – the extension introduces products related by brand block, allowing for additional promotional opportunity.
