Magento 2 Product Labels Comparison (Amasty, Mirasvit)

It’s always a good idea to attract the attention of store visitors to sales, discounts, and various promotions. And since there are several ways to do so, below, we shed light on one of the most efficient methods – product labels. Of course, you can create product labels manually, attaching them to existing product images somewhere in the editor and re-uploading back to Magento 2, but it’s not worth the effort. Instead, we recommend you to use a special Magento 2 extension designed to create labels and attach them to product images automatically. Currently, the Magento 2 ecosystem offers two reliable solutions: Amasty Product Labels and Mirasvit Product Labels. In the following post, we compare them in order to find out key differences between two Magento 2 modules.

Product Labels Grid

Let’s start our comparison with a core backend page of every reliable product label tool – a grid where you can manage all labels.

In case of Amasty, it’s a grid that shows label ID, name, status, as well as image and text. Note that label images and texts are divided into two categories: for product and for category pages. The Amasty Product Labels Magento 2 extension shows flexibility right from the start, but let’s see what its closest competitor offers.

The Mirasvit Product Labels Magento 2 extension via its core grid shows label ID, title, placeholder, type, and status. As you can see, a slightly different approach to label management is implemented. First of all, labels in the grid are not divided into two groups. In some cases it is even better, since the grid looks less complicated, but we think that extra flexibility is a better option.

The lack of categorization is fully compensated with two new parameters Placeholder (you can see the label position right from the grid) and Type (each label can be added to a product image on the basis of product attributes or more complex rules). It is yet impossible to tell what Magento 2 extension is better, but you how different they are at a glance. Let’s discover more dissimilarities.

Add New Label

While adding a new product label with Amasty, you have to deal with 4 tabs of settings: General, Product, Category, and Conditions. The first tab allows you to add label name, choose status, and specify priority to avoid conflicts with other labels. Note that you can activate the option that will hide all labels with lover priority. Besides, it is possible to activate/deactivate the usage of labels for parrent products. The last option allows you to specify a store view for the new product label.

Next, you customize the label for a product page. There are 10 predefined label shapes with fully customizable colors. Alternatively, you can upload your own custom image. Next, choose label position – 9 positions are available – and specify its size (percent of a product image). Add label text and note that you can use variables. Besides, you can customize such text parameters as color and size. If these options are not enough, the Amasty Product Labels Magento 2 module allows you to use CSS for more precise customizations. And there is a preview section below the block with tabs!

The same options are available for Category pages, so you can create absolutely unique appearance for your catalog.

And there is a huge list of conditions. First of all, it is possible to create rules to apply the label automatically. Next, you can add a date range and activate state conditions: Is New and Is on Sale. Besides, it is possible to apply stock and price ranges as well as select customer groups. As a result, you can fully control the display of all your product labels.

The newly created label can be fine tuned via 3 tabs: General Information, Conditions, and Design. Under the first one, you can change title and placeholder. Next, it is possible to activate/deactivate the label as well as select a period to display it. Then, select a  store view and a customer group and specify a sort order.

The Conditions tab of the Magento 2 module lets you create flexible rules, but it doesn’t offer as many parameters as Amasty provides. Note that some of the lacking parameters are available under the previous tab.

The Design tab is divided into two sections – this is where you find out that Mirasvit also allows you to create different labels for product and category pages. Each section allows you to upload image, select its position, add title and description, as well as specify URL.
