Merchandising is a practice which contributes to the sale of products to a retail consumer. At the retail in-store level, merchandising refers to the variety of products available for sale, and the display of those products in such a way that stimulates interest and entices customers to make a purchase. This extension gives you the possibility to decide which products your customers will see at the first or last place in a category, and to help you motivate your customers to make a purchase.

After installation of the extension you will see the positions of products on a category page right from the category editing page. Each product will be displayed with image/name/price/SKU to make it easy for you to detect what you want to change. Also you will be able to delete/add/edit a product directly from the category editing page. To set your own custom order for the products, you just need to drag and drop them in a new place. You needn’t click the Save button, it will be saved automatically.



  • Update a product’s position in the category using the Drag-and-Drop interface + Multiselect (Ctrl+left mouse click)

  • Add a new product to the category!

  • Update the status of a product!

  • Navigate to the editing page of the product right from the category page.

  • Quick Product Editing. Now you can change the following attributes directly from the category page: "Product Name", "SKU", "Price", "Special Price", "Short Description"

  • Delete Products from the Category with just one click!

  • Allows for emulating the Frontend Grid interface (with the "Merchandising Column Count" option, you can set the column count for Merchandising, which will be used in the frontend. With the "Merchandising Sort Direction" option, the sort direction can be set for Merchandising, which will be used in frontend)

  • Very quick saving



  • "Drag & Drop Merchandising" uses Magento's native JavaScript framework Prototype.js

  • You can still use Magento's default sorting mechanism.


How it works:

  • Navigate to 'System'->'Configuration'->'Catalog'->'Frontend' and just make sure that the default sort order is "Best Value" (option: "Product Listing Sort by")

  • Then navigate to 'Catalogue'->'Manage Categories'->' Merchandising' tab

  • Drag and drop the product into the new position

  • Done! The products will be updated in their new position and numbering system.
