Get more awesome display for configurable products in Magento 2

As you know, configurable products, which have a list of options for variable attributes, is a popular kind of product in Magento sites. Up to now, Magento supported store owners to create configurable products in Magento 2 with simpler steps compared to process in Magento 1. However, displaying configurable products in frontend of Magento site is not an easy-to- solve problem because of its complexity. Most of store owners have demand of showing their configurable product in the most eye-catching way so that customers can see through all of its attribute, make comparison and quickly make buying decision.

Although Magento 2 has simpler setting up process for configurable product, when displaying in frontend, it still has disadvantages that prevent customers from purchasing quickly.

Disadvantages of display configurable products in Magento 2

As you can see, in frontend of default Magento 2, we only can see the entire configurable product with its attributes and options following. Customers only can see the product they want after selecting options and add to cart . It's hard for customers to have a overall review of all possible children products and make comparisons.

Moreover, in default configurable product page, customers have to add children product to cart one by one rather than adding multiple products to cart in one time. For example, if a customer wants to buy 4 shirts with black color and size S, 10 shirts with gray color and size M, 15 shirts with blue color and size M, he has to add product to cart 3 times. It means how many times customers need to add to cart is equivalent to how many children products he wants to buy. Imagine that a product has 2 attributes with 20 children products and customers want to buy all of them, they must add to cart 20 times! It is such an inconvenience that may annoy customers, especially for wholesalers. If customers want to buy in bulk, they may not be patient enough to repeat add-to-cart action and then quit purchasing. So, you lose an potential customer!
