Color swatches allow you to display actual colors (or images) instead of color names on product options.
Enable on product page / featured product: Activates color swatches on the main product (Product information) section and the Featured product section. You may want to keep this unchecked while you set up your color swatches.
Enable on collection / search filters: Activates color swatches on collection pages, as well as on the search page. You may want to keep this unchecked while you set up your color swatches.
Options: The products’ option names that should become color swatches. Separate multiple names with a comma. If your store is translated to multiple languages and you want display swatches also for these languages, you will need to also include the translated words.
For example, your products variants have Size, Color, and Material options, and you want to display watches for both Color and Material. Also, your store is available in both English and French. You need to enter:
Colors: The option values (from the product options above) and their respective hexadecimal color or supported image file name, separated by a colon and a space “: “. Add each pair on a new line. Translations also need their own lines. Example:
Black: #000000 Noire: #000000 White: #ffffff Blanche: #ffffff Plastic: plastic.png Plastique: plastic.png Metal: metal.jpg Métal: metal.jpg
The images’ file names and extensions must match the ones appearing on the Files page.
