Product Filters

Product filters can be added to your store so customers can easily find just what they are looking for. Enabling customers to find products this way moves them quickly from search to buy. Filters can be set up by price, inventory level, promotions, keywords, product options and attributes. If your inventory is large and varied this can be especially useful.

Note

Product Filters are only available for the Advanced Store and higher.

You can set everything up in minutes. Optimal filters are pre-configured and enabled for your store based on the number of products, available product options and attributes, enabled promotions, product stock levels and more. You can add/remove filters manually to create the experience you want to provide for your buyers. Filters update as you add, remove or update products in the store and as products are sold and inventory changes. Your buyers see the most updated filters every time they visit.

Enable Product Filters

  1. Go to the Store Control Panel.
  2. Click Settings, and then click Product Filters.
  3. Click Enable Filters.
  4. Select the filter you want to present.

FAQs

Is my store design editor the new one?

If your site was built before September 24th, 2017 you have the option to update your store's Design Editor. If you update the widget, a backup of the site will be created automatically. This update only changes the store Design Editor; it will not change any features in your store.

If your store has been created after September 24th, 2017 or if you have updated the widget already, you will have access to the new design editor.

What if I don’t want to update my widget?

You do not have to update your widget. You will be able to edit your widget using the previous widget editor as well.

What if I reload a backup or use the undo feature?

If you reload a backup or undo while editing an existing store, you will need to re-update the widget. Keep in mind that if you do choose to update a store's design editor, a site backup will be created automatically.

How can I change the text on my store buttons and labels?

Unfortunately, there is no way to change this in the Website Builder.
