Small, medium, large; these are just relative terms when it comes to the size of a product. And, all these sizes can vary greatly in measurements across different brands. Hence, it is useful to provide sufficient information about the variation in measurements through a size chart. To help you with such problem, we are here with Prestashop product size chart module.
The module helps you to create size charts with multiple attribute values for different types of products. Add guiding images with the size chart to clearly explain the meaning of different attribute values.
As the trial of apparels is not feasible when your customer base is not trustworthy, hence giving measurements about different sizes through size charts can really help. Generally, the average apparel retailer handles a return rate of 28% & 80% of these are mostly due to fit issues. hence, it not only guides your customer about the size of the product but also helps to reduce returns.
Size charts can also prove to be beneficial for products of the following segments.
Ornaments like rings, bracelets, bangles etc.
Accessories like blankets, quilts, curtains etc.
Products like table, sofa, wardrobes etc.
Electronic appliances like refrigerator, Television, washing machine, Air conditioners etc.
All of the products listed above will need size chart in one way or the other. After all, products like these have certain dimension & not every variant of these products cater to everyone’s needs.
