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.

FAQ

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?


No.


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, sorry. Only one option at a time works for one filter. Different simultanteous filters do work (e.g.
Blue Medium Shirts). Other apps claiming to have multiple options for one filter work actually only for
the 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.

Such a simple little app but it makes my store so much easier to navigate! Being a secondhand store we have soooo many sizes and brands and up until now I've really struggled to organise them in a way that's customer friendly, so I'm very pleased. Support was above and beyond expectations and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this app.

It was simple to use but the directions lost traction at the collection.liqiud folder where it states to place the code were you want the filters to appear. It does'nt matter where you place them. They are always at the way bottom or top but not next to the actual products.

Great app & support! Totally recommended!

Looks Great! Wish it was more user friendly... An interface that you can use within the collection page builder would be much better than having to write code or pay $25 for them to do the coding for you. Love the concept.. But dont like the usability

Exactly what I was looking for. Also, I e-mailed them few questions and i got replied in 10 minutes on late Friday evening.

They took their own time on Friday to help me out and they over delivered by making some custom adjustments.

Love this company and can not recommend it enough!

Very nice app, exactly what I needed

I've been searching for a solution to this for a while. I run through styles pretty quickly so it can be difficult for shoppers to locate what is in stock in their size. Adding this simple drop down to each collection makes is SO MUCH easier for women to locate styles in their size. It looks clean, works simply, and the support is crazy fast and efficient. Highly recommend this app!

This app just solved all the problems that I've been struggling with for a long time. The Support team is really helpful and quick to respond. Thank you so much for everything!

We've had great feedback from customers since we installed Collection Filter on our shop, Gone Running (gone.run), as they can search products by their size to see what we have in stock. Works great for sales as well, where finding in-stock sizing can often be an issue. Marius at Supple is super responsive to requests as well. Highly recommended.

The Collection Filter is simple to install and makes a big difference to customer experience. It makes it easy for your customers to find what they want quickly! I had a slight issue contacted support and they dealt with it promptly and were helpful. From my experience over the last month I wouldn't hesitate to recommended SuppleApps and Collection Filter. Thanks guys
