Magento Module: Quick Viewer

A responsive product quick-view integration with full PDP capabilities.


This module was developed to add popular quick-view functionality to product listing pages. The requirements for this module were unique, in that it had to support both a B2C and B2B user experience.

The result was a full-featured product view that accelerated catalog navigation and conversions.
