What Filters Can I Use?

Custom Fields

These allow you to classify your products in a way that you desire and is the easiest way to add a filter. For example, a clothing retailer may use custom fields to create filters such as size, colour, or length.

Product Options

Product Options allow you to add more complex variations on the products your store sells. All product options must be controlled product-level inventory and have SKU's with stock.

Standard

These are the filters used by most BigCommerce stores such as brand, category, condition, rating, price, stock, featured products, sale products and Shipping.

Filter Builder

Build your own filters directly in our app without having to modify your product data in BigCommerce.

Control your filters

Control your filters

Our easy to use filter configuration allows you to control your filters from one central location. On the filter page, you can see what filters you have set up and if they are visible on your site.

Value Replacer

Many manufactures label their colors differently; this can cause issues when trying to filter as the colors will not be grouped. Here's where our value replacer comes in. You can replace your Custom field or Product Option values directly in our app to merge the colors together so create a seamless experience for the customer. Our value replacer only affects the filter data, not the data on your store.

Filter Refine Bars

Filter Refine Bars

Our Filter Refine Bar feature allows customers to search within each filter. For example, a customer may want a particular brand, but there are over 50 brands in the filter. By using the Filter Refine Bar, they can immediately identify the desired brand. Ultimately this makes the online shopping experience quicker and easier, therefore improving customer satisfaction.

This feature can be enabled from the Settings page on your filter Dashboard. It is particularly beneficial to stores with great numbers of products.

Custom sort order

Custom sort order

Using our Sort order feature, you can arrange your filter values as you desire. By Logging into your filter dashboard, you can manage the sort order which will then change the order in which the values appear on your store. You can choose an order that is suitable or logical for you and your customers.

Image change

Image Changing

Our filter automatically picks up image changes on product options via SKU's or Rules.

For example, if you have products with multiple colors and the green filter is clicked, it will show all of the products in green.

Stats

Stats

Here you can view your Filter statistics which makes for a very interesting read! This includes a graph showing what filters people are clicking on day by day. You can see your best-performing filters and the number of clicks they had. Using this information in conjunction with sales data can really help stores with the buying and promotion of goods.

You can also view a breakdown of all the filter clicks and the total times the filter has been used. With this data, you can see how customers are using the filter and most popular categories they are clicking on. This can help stores make informed decisions about the items they stock and their marketing strategies.
