Summary

The advanced product comparison module improves the usability of your AbleCommerce store by allowing shoppers to compare a shortlist of products side-by-side and eliminating the need to navigate back and forth between product pages. It also provides users with a better system than using the shopping cart as a holding place for product comparison, which should improve your shopping cart abandonment rate. Along with the standard 'add to cart' or 'view details' buttons, product comparison modules adds a new compare button that can be used to add products to a compare-list for comparison. The compare-list is available to the customer so that he/she can add/remove products to this list. Once the customer has selected some products for comparison he/she can click the 'compare' button on the list to see a product comparison matrix.
