The product comparison feature is useful if you have a lot of similiar products with slight variations, because it makes it easier for customers to distinguish the differences between these particular products. When this feature is enabled, you will see a Compare checkbox under each item on the category page. The customer would just need to check the products they want to compare, then click the Compare button at the bottom of the category grid.
To enable this feature:
- Log in to your CoreCommerce admin panel.
- Hover over the Settings link in the upper right corner and click on Inventory Settings.
- Under the Products tab, check Display Compare.
- If you'd like to allow your customers to compare your User Defined Fields (UDFs) as well, then also check Compare User Defined Fields.
- When done, click Save.
