Product description

Magento 2 Subcategory Extension

Compatible with Magento 2 community and enterprise 2.3.x - 2.4.x including cloud edition

This Magento 2 subcategory Grid/List extension introduces an extra feature that lets you display the subcategories on the category page. You can add an image, description, and select the number of columns you want your subcategories to appear in. And depending upon that you can have a grid view or a list view. Your store will be much easier to browse. It makes up for an incredible user experience. Mainly, stores with several categories and subcategories can utilize this extension to improve their user interface.

Purpose of This Extension

The main purpose of this extension is to incorporate an extra layer of navigation so that users can see subcategories on the category page for convenient browsing. Previously, the Magento’s default functionality did not let us display subcategories under a category page. We have created a widget that automatically fetches your subcategories on the category page while you can provide the image and the description for each one of them from the Catalog > Categories > Sub-сategories Settings.

Highly Improved Navigation

User experience is one of the key aspects of any e-commerce store. If you are not pointing your customers in the right direction on your store then they are most likely to get confused and won’t come back. Stores with tons of products need to provide proper paths. Using this extension you can properly display subcategories on a category page. The Magento 2 out-of-the-box settings do not let you display subcategories on a category page which is a deal-breaker for customers on complex stores. You need to provide a proper path so the users do not need to think a lot and they can browse the store easily.

Our extension will help you display sub-categories on a category page with the image as well as a description. To do this you will have an extra option in the display settings of each category, you just need to select that from the dropdown. You can manage all the functionality of this extension directly from your backend. This extension essentially provides a flawless feature so that users can view the available subcategories on the category page and clearly understand them then navigate to where they want to go. It is one of a kind module available in the market.
