In today’s online shopping world, there are few customers who just want to give a try to the product available in your website. But there are few high valued customers who are interested to buy more than one product in one purchase. Such customers usually add the required products to the product listing page and want to compare the products with one another. In general the customer is redirected to the product listing page. When the customers are redirected to the next page for product comparison it becomes hard for them to compare the products with the products available in the product catalog page. Easy way is to offer them the product listing page in the same product catalog page. It is quite difficult technically, but our dedicated team members have developed the Magento Shortlist Extension module that uses widget and Ajax technology to show the selected products on the product catalog page.
