  • MageStore - Shop By Brand - Must have Extension!

    Retail Music Store

    If you're serious about Google SEO on your Magento store, then Magestore's Shop By Brand is a must have extension. It's so important to have landing pages for your product brand pages, it's so obvious it should be a default Magento feature. Lucky Magestore have us covered. I've been running the extension now for over a year and the support I have received has been timely and professional. Due to my custom theme and 3rd party extensions, I needed some customisation to work out some formatting and conflict issue. Magestore accommodated me with every request. In my mind, this is the most important aspect of software sales, the aftermarket support. Thank you Magestore for your assistance. Highly recommend this product to anyone wanting to increase their online SEO presence.

  • Only to recommend


    The Shop by Brand extension has been an awesome tool for us to display products according to the various brand names in our website. This is a key factor in our business, and thanks to the team for their wonderful and timely support! I would recommend this extension for those who sell products of various different brands.

  • very good extention


    I used this shop by brand extension and we are very happy with this extension.

  • Choose these guys, best customer support around!


    Choose these guys. When I first purchased this extension over a year ago the brand extension didn't fit with my stores custom theme and layout. Right away Magestore fixed the layout issues and had it running perfectly. Fast forward to now... having upgraded the Magento version to the newest version I had to download the new version of the extension to work around the 6788 patch. Not only did I get the newest extension version for free to download, then the Magestore team fixed all my formatting issues for the second time within 24 hours. I've used a lot of Magento extension developers over the last two years and Magestore have impressed me! Five Stars. Thank You!

  • Great way to keep brands visible to the consumer


    This extension has provided us with an easy way to make sure our customers can shop by brand in multiple ways, providing quick links from product pages, landing pages and category navigation.

    simon fuff

    Not only is the extension excellent and does exactly what it says, the support from the developers is second to none. They go out of their way to help with any problems and in our case helped with an integration problem that was way beyond the call of duty. I wish all Magento extensions were Magestore extensions.

  • Works GREAT!

    Btray77's Shop by Brand extension is Amazing. I had some issues with it after I upgraded from Magento 1.8 to 1.9 and Louis at took care of my issue. I have to say that MageStore has earned my business for years to come. I couldn't ask for better customer support.

  • A great website feature


    For a long time I considered trying to do something myself to have my customers able to browse according to brand. The amount of work involved for me to work it all out would have been huge. The install was easy and I had a few teething problems (due to me not really knowing what I was doing with linking up the brand names) but that was quickly sorted out with help from Magestore. Friendly service and it's great to have someone to contact to get that little bit of help to get things working.

  • Patience will pay off - very complete off the shelf product


    I have quite a complex site with high levels of customisation affecting layered navigation, category page, product page, etc... I purchased the extension as well as the installation services. I still tried to make the install on my local server but faced conflicts I was not able to resolve. It took the guys at Magestore a few weeks to get everything resolved but they did it and the extension is running smoothly adding great value to my site. We had communication throughout the process and the guys were really pro. In conclusion, you can expect to experience some issues and experience if you are not an advanced developer but buying the extra install pack will be your saviour. I do recommend this extension if you want to have a shop by brand page.

  • Excellent shop by brand extension


    If you need to organize your brands, that's the one you're looking for. We've had a lot of problems because of THEME that we are using but their support team fixed all of our problems.

    Was looking through for brand listing extensions and between a few choices - selected this developer due to functions that was what i needed, along with the apparent support and guarantees that was offered. After we installed it to our custom theme, it seemed like we had some compatability issues. Put in a question tag, and got a reply pretty fast. Went back and forth on a few things and throughout the whole processes, they were very helpful and patient. Awesome support - thanks Louis for the great work. Still playing around with extension functionality but definitively seems to be as described. Good extensions mean nothing if the support's not there in case of issues - Thumbs up.
