How configurable products are shown in Magento 2 default
In the Magento 2 default, a configurable product is shown with multiple options’ attributes in the filter row or on the drop-down list. Choosing a child product requires shoppers to select and filter each attribute manually. This process is time taking, especially, in case that buyers suddenly navigate to another page then come back to the product page to shop, they absolutely have to configure from the beginning to choose their favored items again.
As a consequence of this limitation, your store may face a higher abandonment rate. You can wonder why? It’s simple. The selection of configurable products is time-consuming and frustrating if they need to be repeated, so it is likely that customers feel impatient and leave the store site without making the purchase. This is one of the most popular causes of an increase in the abandonment rate of Magento 2 stores.

Superlative functions by Configurable Product Grid View
Show all child products in a grid table
Magento 2 Default only allows showing Configurable Products in drop-down or horizontal options, which require customers to choose each simple product by attributes. However, Configurable Product Grid View uses a table to show all available related child products in a clear and detailed way right on Product Page.
Thanks to this innovation tool, the shopping steps and time with Configurable Products are minimized significantly. Buyers are only required to choose which combination they want by pick up the exact child products and add to cart easily.
Add mass child products to cart
A simple product (or child product) of a configurable product is considered a separated and single item, which means that you can add them to cart in bug.
Customers easily choose the preferred child products once then move to shopping cart later to check it out. The process is short and simple to make the purchase experience pleasant and convenient for all of our busy shoppers these days.
View stock statuses of all child products
As the module counts each child product as a separated object, it can also be displayed along with its stock status. Let consider this case: a configurable product like a pair of shoes with different child products in color and size. Unfortunately, your blue shoes are running out of stock. Using this extension, customers can see the “Out of stock” notice under that blue pair of shoes. This helps them make the buying decision more accurately and quickly.
