Custom Color Swatches

Author: An Do 992 views

The Custom colors swatch extension is used to add colors to product variants. As you know, Shopify only allows you to add images for variants but does not allow you to add colors. For example, your product has some color options, and you want to add specific colors to your variants like the Pink, Orange, or Gray variants instead of using images. Or In some cases where you do not want to display the product thumbnail but want to use the color for the variant, this extension will allow you to do that.

This extension can be used on pages like the product, collection page, or elements where you have variants displayed.
