When I compare products on my store, there are a lot of I filled attributes and despite there being no value for each product I’m comparing, it still shows the attribute and a line of “N/A” values.

How can I fix this?

It also did show unused values with “N/A” on the product page but I edited the


file to fix this. I’m unsure on how I could edit the compare file to solve this though.

See hide empty attributes from compare product

However, the issue of one but not the other being set is not fixed. I couldn't find a fix that was easily accessible.

Magento 1 How to Hide Empty or Null Attribute in Compare Page

These are from Magento 1 and not Magento 2. I have not tested it but am looking for a solution as well for Magento 2.


use plugin for Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\Compare\ListCompare::getAttributes


    <type name="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\Compare\ListCompare">
        <plugin sortOrder="1" name="[NAME]" type="[VENDOR]\[MODULE]\Plugin\Block\Product\Compare\ListComparePlugin"/>


public function afterGetAttributes(ListCompare $subject, $result)
    foreach ($subject->getItems() as $item) {
        foreach (array_keys($result) as $attributeCode) {
            if (empty(trim($item->getData($attributeCode) ?? ''))) {

    return $result;

Override Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\Compare\ListCompare using Preference

 <preference for="Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\Compare\ListCompare"

And update below function

 * Retrieve Product Compare Attributes
 * @return array
public function getAttributes()
    if ($this->_attributes === null) {
        $this->_attributes = $this->getItems()->getComparableAttributes();

    // Remove Null Attribute From Compare List
    foreach ($this->_attributes as $attribute) {
        $size  = sizeof($this->getItems());
        $count = 0;

        foreach ($this->getItems() as $item) {
            $itemAttribute = $item->getData($attribute->getName());
            $trimAttribute = trim($itemAttribute);
            if (is_null($itemAttribute) || empty($trimAttribute)) {

            if ($count == $size) {
    return $this->_attributes;

This is working for me in Magento2
