Getting Started with Shop by Brand Add-on in X-Cart 5.5.x

Your store may already have the add-on Shop by Brand installed and enabled.

If not, it can be obtained from X-Cart App Store. To install the add-on, follow the steps described in Installing Add-ons from X-Cart App Store.

Brands are based on the product attributes feature, so you will first have to deal with attributes to configure brands.

Namely, you will need to create a global attribute field that you will use for brands or choose an already existing one - like "Brand" or "Manufacturer." (For example, in X-Cart Auto edition, the attribute reserved for brands is "Brands").

To create or edit global attributes, go to the "Classes & Attributes" page.

You can see a list of your store's global attributes on the "All Attributes" tab, outside of groups.

In our demo store, we have an only global attribute on this list - "Manufacturer":

If we want we can use this attribute for brands. Otherwise, we will need to add a new global attribute.

To add a new attribute, use the New attribute button:

This new global attribute can use any name we require.

Now you need to tell the "Shop by Brand" add-on that you will use this attribute for brands. This can be done on the Shop by Brand add-on settings page.

To access the add-on settings page, find the add-on Shop by Brand on the list of your store’s installed add-ons (My Apps section) in the Admin area and click on the link to configure the add-on settings (can be found next to the add-on name and description).

Detailed information on the "Shop by Brand" add-on settings is available in the section Shop by Brand Add-on Settings.
