With this feature-rich sorting tool you'll enable your customers to sort products by various parameters like bestsellers, new products, biggest discounts, highest rating, most viewed items and many others. It's also possible to specify advanced sorting options based on products' profitability.

Moreover, the extension lets you accurately fine tune products display by showing out of stock products at the end of the product list or excluding products with specific statuses from the display. To attract customers' attention to particular items you can easily create featured product blocks based on various sorting options.  



The module offers a wide range of sorting options for instant product search:

  • Sorting by sales option helps to increase your conversion from any bestseller you need. You can also specify the period, for which the sales are counted.
  • Sorting by savings option displays products based on the difference between regular price and special price. The bigger the difference - the higher the product is placed on the list. 
  • Sorting by the biggest discount percentage
  • Sorting by product creation date option display new items at the top. You can use a custom date attribute to manage the order of products.
  • Sorting by product rating and by the number of reviews
  • Sorting by presence in wishlists feature will show products that are most frequent in customers’ wishlists.
  • Sorting by the number of item views can easily demonstrate the most popular products to customers. It is a real must-have for new sites, which can’t boast of numerous orders. The ‘Most viewed products’ feature also enables to specify the period, during which the views are counted.
  • Sorting by the number of products is useful for wholesalers, who buy products in large amounts. Now they can easily find out which items have the most stock.



With a set of new sorting options, admin users can display the most profitable (or the least profitable) products in sort results and featured blocks, thus effectively regulating sales of particular products.

New options include sorting by:

  • Profit (is calculated as Price minus Cost);
  • Revenue (sorting is based on a product's sales amount);
  • Revenue per view (represents the estimated earnings you receive for every product page view);
  • Order per view.



Create featured product blocks based on sorting options

Create a sidebar block using templates provided by the extension or make your own ones.

Display products from any category in the blocks

Add product blocks to any page. In the blocks, you can show products from the category they are displayed in or from any category you specify.


Manually manage products’ order in ‘Bestsellers’ and ‘Most Viewed’ lists

The extension automatically prioritizes products based on the sales amount or the number of views. If you want to manually move particular products up in the bestsellers and most viewed lists to sell them quicker, this is also possible.

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

At the top of a product list, it’s better to display items which you can sell right away. Customers will still be able to see and search for out of stock products. This feature has an effect only on catalog pages and can be disabled if necessary.

Display 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 default sorting for search results page

In store built on Magento results are shown in an ascending order of creation, thus, the older products are shown first. For business it would be much better to emphasize best sellers or biggest savings. Now it is possible to set default sorting for search results page and for advanced search results page in just a click.

Descending order by default

The extension enables you to sort products by price from high to low by default. This option is also applicable to other sorting types.

Set sorting by any of the new options as default

Make any of the new sorting options default both at the catalog and category level.

Select sort orders for specific categories

You can change sort orders on a per-category basis and even change the default sort order per category.

Additional Features:

  • Disable sorting options at the catalog and category level.
  • Optional indexation - 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.
