This is the best swatches plugin for wordpress. Period. I tried 4 different ones and they all had one or other complication... sometimes they broke the theme, sometimes they just weren't easy to set up or to maintain... but this one is really easy to work with and works great, the support is awesome, they fixed an incompatibility with my Jetpack settings in no time. Amazing work, will buy more plugins from this developer for sure.
