Variant swatches

Display your product variants as Swatches to make it easy for customers to view your product options at a glance. Instead of a dropdown menu, swatches visually represent your variants as a row of clickable buttons.

You can also enable Variant chips on product pages, which display product options as a row of clickable buttons with the variant name as the label. See the variant chips guide.

Common Questions
Why are my swatches blank?

If your swatches appear blank, make sure that you are using an existing default color or that your image files and custom swatch names match your variant names. You may also need to add custom swatches for multiple languages.

Watch tutorial

Watch the tutorial video for setting up swatches, including default colors, custom colors, and custom images.

Set up swatches

Swatches are enabled in your theme settings by adding the option name for your variants. You can add swatches using default colors, custom colors, or you can upload custom images, which is great for representing patterns or textures.

Appearance settings

You can choose how and where your swatches appear. Change the shape of the swatches, and choose to show them on product listings and in filters on your collection pages.

The Dynamic option availability option grays out swatches of out-of-stock variants.
