Variant swatches

Product pages

Display your product variants as Swatches to make it easy for customers to view your product options at a glance. Instead of a dropdown menu, swatches visually represent your variants as a row of clickable buttons.

You can add swatches using default colors or custom colors added to your theme settings. You can also upload custom images to represent your product variants more precisely.

Why are my swatches blank?

If your swatches appear blank, make sure that you are using an existing default color or that your image files and custom swatch names match your variant names. You may also need to add custom swatches for multiple languages.

Set up swatches

Swatches are enabled in your theme settings by adding the option name for your variants. You can add swatches using default colors, custom colors, or you can upload custom images.

You can also enable Variant chips on product pages, which display product options as a row of clickable buttons with the variant name as the label. See the variant chips guide.

Appearance settings

You can choose to show swatches on products cards when hovered over anywhere on your site. Spark also has Dynamic option availability that grays out swatches of out-of-stock variants.
