CS Cart - Product Filtering option? Rate Topic   - - - - -

Hi there.

Another key question as I deliberate! Does CS Cart have a product filter capability? Ie. can you asign attributes or product features to products and THEN based on category, filter products out by options.

please see here for an example: http://ascent.co.nz/...x?majorcatID=39

see on the right they have a product filter box? You can pick different things like Memory Capacity, Battery life etc & then click Filter to find products matching these.

Is this currently possible with CS Cart or been modded?

thanks!

It would require some custom modding to achieve this.
Marketing tip:

Did you know a targeted e-mail marketing campaign can bring conversion rates up to 3.9%? By using reliable e-mail marketing software you can upsell to existing customers on a tight budget. If you are not using e-mail marketing you are missing out big time. I recommend and use Aweber.

That's the only thing missing in cs-cart as i've seen in the trial. If product features can be assigned to a product class or a product category this would be a very usefull and cutting edge function.

We have asked the CS-Cart team to create this for us as custom work.
Maybe they will include it in a next version.
If anyone is interested in this, send me a pm.

Not sure if it is what you had in mind, but we have 6-8 "features" (actually plant characteristics) for each "product" (plant), and through advanced search, the customer can filter out what is important to them.

For example, a customer can search for only plants that prefer shade, only grow 6-12" tall, and have an orange flower.

This has been done with a stock 1.3.4 store, just a lot of initial time to setup for each product.

I know it can be done with Advanced seach , but it is easyer (and vey important) for any customer who is looking into an category, to filter products there by manufacturers or by some 'product feature', or by a range of prices. Plus, each category coud have diferent type of filters.

This is very important because most customer don't know exactly what are they looking for and start with looking through categories.

Almost all the big online stores have this feature, and i think it is not too hard to implement, because all the coding exists in advanced search...

look at amazon ... in cameras (photo) you have 8 filters..,
http://www.amazon.co...,n:172526<br />
walmart - the same : http://www.walmart.c...Id=597465<br />
and the list could continue forever....

* This should be a default ability *

I shop at Newegg.com often for computer related items/parts mostly because it has this type of filter ability. It saves alot of time finding what I need and helps ensure compatibilty.

In my opinion, adding this ability should be a top priority

product filtering is included with CS 2.0 which is in BETA testing right now, best bet is to purchase a license now while the prices are down...

I need this option(modul) for my shop.


Hi,
I had this done by the cs cart dev team.
It narrow the category result from any options in it.
It shows as a side box related to the current category,
when you click on an option, it rollover the variant name and the number of products available, then you can click on it to narrow it down.
You can narrow many times, the list of the products is recalculate from the previous
range of results so it's really flexible and easy for the customers.

The first version was taking a lot of server ressource as it was running a lot of queries.
As that shop (http://furnitureulike.co.uk) has a massive catalog of about 10,000 products, it was getting unsuable at all,.

The second version of the "product filter" is now php array based and is really fast and efficient.
It also goes through the HTML catalog so you can visit the HTML version of the shop (witch is fast) and jump to the php version to run the filter.
When you remove your last filtering option, you're taken back to the HTML related page.

You should ask the dev team as they have already done it for me on a 1.3.5 sp shop based.
They have made a fast work for a reasonnable cost.
