Search products by Type, Vendor, Size, Color and custom options

When looking at a collection, customers can easily select their preferred Size, Color or other options. Their choices are remembered when browsing different collections.

Available options depend on each collection. Filters appear automatically only when products with those filter options exist in the current collection. For example, when looking at Shirts, one can choose Medium / Large sizes, but when browsing Shoes, the sizes are 6, 7, etc. When looking at Dresses, a search by Material might be available.

There is no work required from you to keep automatic filters updated -- just continue to run your shop as you did so far, and let the app keep everything current.

Optional, choose to show only products available in stock.

Multiple selections for a single filter (e.g. Size Medium or Large) are not supported.

Where do filter options come from?

Automatic filters

Automatic filters take data from your Products, if it's already specified in Shopify.

  • Type from Product Type field

  • Vendor from Product Vendor field

  • Size, Color or any other option that you already have set in Product Variants Options

Manual filters

You can manually tag products for additional filters.

e.g. for a Material filter, use tags such as Material_Organic Cotton, Material_Wool

e.g. for a Style filter, use tags such as Style_Classic, Style_New Age

Customize behavior to meet your needs

Customize what filters are available, and how to display them (select lists, checkboxes or active links), including translating or renaming each option. Style them exactly as you wish using CSS.

Do you want customers to focus only on what's in stock now? Choose to Exclude out of stock variants, and the app will limit options only to what's available now.

How can I remove the cf-* tags created by the app?

If you uninstalled the app, please re-install it temporarily. There's no need to start subscription.

Go to app Settings, and instead of "Size,Color" etc, leave blank the first field. Save and then click Update product and collection tags.

How does the app know when a product is out of stock?

Twice per day, the app goes through all products. If there's at least a Size Medium variant in stock (with any Color), the entire product will be tagged as cf-Size-Medium. If there's at least a Color Blue variant in stock (with any Size), the entire product will be tagged as cf-Color-Blue.

In some cases, this might result in having products shown when selecting Medium Blue, although Medium Blue isn't in stock.

Can we have different filters for different types of collection pages?

Filters are shown automatically with options available only for products in that collection.
For example, if a collection doesn't have any products with Size option, then Size won't be shown when viewing that collection.

Can the app filter by Price?


From our experience with building high-profile shops (Vera Wang, DOPE, TOMS), a better customer experience would be to have the ability to sort by prices
(example), instead of restricting results to a certain price range.
Focus on finding a good fit first, and then look at the results sorted by price in case a customer is so price savy.

We can add sorting as part of the setup for another $15 (one-time fee).

If you'd really want to have a Price filter, the only solution would be to tag products manually, e.g. Price_Under 25, Price_25-50, Price_50-100, and then add "Price" in app Settings -> Manual filters.

After selecting a filter, will the app adjust the other filters to show options valid only for existing selection?

No. All filters applicable in collection will be shown.

Can customers select multiple options for a single filter, e.g. multiple Colors?

No. Due to Shopify limitations, only one option at a time works for one filter. Different simultanteous filters does work (e.g. Blue Medium Shirts). Other apps claiming to have multiple options for one filter work actually only for first 50 products in a collection.

Can I have filters on a left sidebar?

Only if your theme has a built-in sidebar. It is quite complex to implement a sidebar. Note that it has to work great on mobile too, where the sidebar moves to the top.

As an alternative, filters can be placed in the center as drop-downs, before the product listing.

A robust solution with the effective support to make sure everything is properly setup.


If you can play around the code a little bit this app comes in handy.


Perfect app! Works like a charm. Great support!


We installed the app to give it a try and didn't end up using it. Now it has been removed and they still charge us monthly.


Great filtering plugin. It has some limitations, but overall it works well.


I'd love to give this app 5 stars, because it does its job well. However, there is a noticeable decrease in site speed that is keeping me from giving this app 5 stars. Otherwise, support is great, app works well, and it's easy to set up. Recommended!


Thanks you so much for helping me set this up! :)


Absolutely brilliant! I would most definitely recommend this app for anyone who is considering setting up an e-commerce website on the Shopify CMS; the options are effective and very helpful. Simply a logical and must have app from the wonderful team at Supple Apps!


Must have app !!! .. If you need create filters for your customers this app is perfect, easy to configure. Hasn't got some options like select multiple options for the same filter but to be honest the quality/price ratio is brilliant.
Very happy !!


It's necessary and good enough
