Enrich your customers’ shopping experience by allowing potential clients to search for the right product in a very easy and convenient way. This is done by allowing users to sort products by best sellers, most viewed, top rated, new and in wishlist parameters to demonstrate your products. Bestselling and highly rated products will be automatically pushed to the top. Apart from that, manually manage the order of products for some options and create featured product blocks. 

Sorting by savings, 'Biggest Saving'

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 shown in the list. It will be extremely helpful during holidays, as people are used to getting discounts at that time. Customers look for a store that has better offers, so take a chance to highlight your specials.

Sorting by the biggest discount percentage

You can sort the products by the highest percentage of discount using ‘Biggest Savings’ ranking option.

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 comfortably by implementing a 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 that kind, where people always look for new stylish things.

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

When shopping, people are looking for product information that they can trust. There's nothing they will trust more than rating and reviews, as this is feedback provided by their fellow customers.

Sorting by presence in wishlists, 'Now in Wishlists'

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

Sorting by the number of item views, '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.

Manually manage the order of products in Bestsellers and Most Viewed lists

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 2 all sort by options have ascending order. So if, for example, you would like to display the most expensive items at the top, you cannot do it. The extension enables you to display items from high to low.

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

It's better to display products, which you can sell right away, at the top. Customers will still be able to see and search 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.

Select sort orders for specific categories

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

Set sorting by any of the new options as default

You can make any of the new sorting options default both for catalog and categories.



  • Ability to disable sorting options. You can disable any of the new sorting options both for the catalog and categories.
  • Optional indexing. The indexing mechanism ensures your category pages are loaded fast even if you have a very large catalog.
  • EE note. The extension supports MySql Fulltext search engine, Solr support will be added in the next versions.
