PrestaShop Brands/Manufacturers

Starting from 1.7 version PrestaShop renamed the Manufacturers section to Brands. So, we will describe to you how to manage your Brands/Manufactures from the backend and Store Manager application.

When you are selling some branded products it’s worth adding a brand/manufacturer name to them in your PrestaShop store. Firstly, when a manufacturer or brand becomes well-known, its name serves as an additional incentive for customers on your website. Secondly, it helps to get displayed in the search results when people are looking for some particular brand. And, lastly, it makes the navigation of your store more convenient.

Where is a Product’s Brand/Manufacturer Reflected in PrestaShop

In the default PrestaShop installation, the Manufacturer/Brand name is not displayed on the product page. Brands are shown in the left column as a menu, so shoppers can filter products by a brand. Though, it is possible to add a brand’s logo on the product page via customization or some module.

Important! On the front-end of your store, manufacturers are sorted alphabetically. You cannot change that order.

How to Add New PrestaShop Brand to a List

If you manage your catalog through the native PrestaShop back office, here are the steps to add a new brand:

Open Catalog -> Brands&Suppliers section. Here you can see 2 tabs to manage Brands and Suppliers. Stay in the “Brands” tab. Specify the brand’s name and associate it to at least one shop (if you use the multi-store feature).
