What Filters Can I Use?

Category Based Filters

This allows you to create filters from your category structure. It will display like our Category Tree filter in an expandable tree.

Custom Field Filters

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 Option Filters

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 Pre Built Filters

These are the filters used by most BigCommerce stores and work from your basic products data, these include: Brand, Category, Category Search, Category Tree, Condition, Featured Products, On Sale, Price, Rating, Shipping, Stock, Sub Category, and Top Level Sub Category.

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. You can see what filters you have set up on the filter page and if they are visible on your site. You can add and delete filters, hide filters, add search bars, and edit the Filter titles. If you don't wish to delete specific filters permanently, you can hide them easily.

Filter Builder

Filter Builder

No data? No problem, we've got you. You can now build filters directly inside our app without modifying your products in BigCommerce.

All you need to do is add your filter title (e.g. Type) and then fill out the data next to each product. Once you've done that your new filter will be available on your filter page.

Quick Search

When our search filter is enabled, you will be able to take advantage of our quick search see list below for our search filters:

  • Search through everything Searches through Product names, SKU's, Categories, Pages, Brands and Blog posts.
  • Direct SKU Search Automatically redirects if an SKU is searched and it matches one of your products.
  • Recent Searches Displays your stores recent searches next to the search results list.
  • Redirects Add certain search queries to redirect the customer to any page.
  • Synonyms Add synonyms to group search queries, for example the customer can search "iOS" and get the results for "Apple".
  • Ignore Words You can add words that the filter will ignore like "and", "to", "this".
From To
Light blue Blue
Turquoise Blue
Navy Blue
Royal Blue Blue
Ocean Blue Blue
Cobalt Blue
Emerald Green
Lime Green

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 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.



Here you can view your Filter statistics which makes for an exciting 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 buying and promoting 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 use 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.
