Product Matrix Tooltip Feature

Posted by: Josh Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Product Matrix is one of our most popular extensions, it is constantly evolving and we are always trying to find new ways of improving it. Recently a client of ours mentioned that he would like to display a Tooltip next to his delivery methods giving customers more information about the delivery method. We thought this was a great idea and decided to add the feature to Product Matrix.

I was lucky enough to get the job of implementing the Tooltip feature, as a fairly new member of the team I was excited to be working on Product Matrix.




When the Tooltip is active it will appear next to the delivery methods for which you have specified a Tooltip caption. The Tooltip caption can be set up in your Product Matrix CSV file, simply enter your Tooltip caption under the notes column. Any delivery method with a star in the notes column will not have a Tooltip displayed to your customers at checkout.

    Any chance you will extend this to Shipping Override as well? That would be super helpful.

    If you send an email in to WebShopApps then we can discuss this. We would definitely consider putting this into Shipping Override.

    This is a great feature and I’d love to use it. Do tooltips work with .csv files using the alt= algorithm to combine multiple delivery types? I’ve tried implementing it but the proper tooltip only seems to appear when the item in the cart that makes use of the alt= algorithm is the last in the bunch.

    Is it possible for the notes to show as a subtext under or beside the shipping method in checkout?

    You could change in the phtml to do this, but this is how we have it implemented by default. Certainly the information is there.
