Who and why could use Catproduct?

Everybody! Why? Don't ask but use it! Catproduct can be most useful plug-in you have ever seen! Main purpose is to add several products into cart at same time. But more important is which product. Here are some examples:

  • You can use it for displaying child products. For example different sizes of same t-shirt. With Catproduct customer don't need to select each size and add them in cart one by one, but he can choose all sizes add add them in cart at same time!
  • You can use it for related products. For example, you are selling Camera, but with Catproduct, customer is able to buy all additional products (bag, memory cart, lens, etc.) from same page at one time.
  • You can use it for bundles. For example, you are selling books, let say collection of A Song of Ice and Fire. There are five books now, each one is a product. But then you make a bundle product with Catproduct with all five books attached and customer can now buy all books from one page!
  • There are thousands of examples, just use your imagination!
