This was my first product filter app and it worked. I am lazy but I did manage to make it work, using just collection which the app does for you. Never went back to my collections though, I'd be lost. I am moving on from this app now mainly because I need a cheaper solution and other apps provide that with smart search bar as well. This app is great and easily customisable if you have the time to invest time into it. Something my store isn't ready for.
Thanks for the great review!
Second time using this fantastic app and a bit more knowledge about it. 5/5 again. See my other review below for Koast Clothing for more info. If you plan to build complex filtering structures then I would advise contacting the excellent support team. Tanya is often on hand to help and Chris and the dev team will troubleshoot more complex solutions or issues. There may be times when you need their help for rendering issues because there are so many different themes out there. Shopify does not offer an OR logic option, only AND - it is a limitation of the platform. Power Tools "Replacer" really helps with this limitation. I ran into a serious issue when creating a filter which was no fault of Power Tools and they worked with me to get out of jail. Keep in mind that Filter Menu radically increases your tag count in certain cases (colours and sizes for example) so factor this in with Shopify's suggested 1000 site wide limit and 250 tags per product limit. Thoroughly recommended and thanks to the team again!
Thanks for the lovely review, our support teams work very hard so we really appreciate it!
Best app for this type. Awesome functions and a great support!!! Used it for color filters for my shop. Already worth it!!
Fantastic! Thanks for the glowing review!
Great app, and great customer. Satisfied with their work and responsiveness to any issues. I recommend. Great design.
What an app, what a team behind it! I can't sing the praises loud enough of the Power Tools team and of course Filter Menu.
It's two key things:
1. Great value.
2. Really powerful and flexible bringing a new dimension to your Shopify site and more importantly the experience of your customers.
Now, for a few footnotes...
It isn't that easy to use but this is mainly to do with the sheer power of the app. It will take you some time to acclimatise to the mechanics of the app and its eccentricities (there are many). That said, the Power Tools team are on hand to help and they really do. Keep in mind that they are in different time zones - one support team in Europe and another in Australia (which is useful). It can take a little while for difficult issues to be sorted but they do get sorted.
The aliasing feature is truly amazing and with some patience you can create elegant filters to convert browsing customers into buying customers.
I've found that I had to watch the excellent tutorial videos a few times to understand what to do and then occasionally check with support on more detailed things. They will help you. I'd add here that I've been designing, building and developing websites for 20 years and I did need to carefully understand the app before launching into config - and I made some mistakes.
Important note. If you update your theme then Filter Menu also needs to be "updated" too to ensure it works. The Power Tools team offered to do this for me and I was about 90% successful on my first attempt but one or two small issues did occur. Power Tools helped me with this. There is a need for better docs on the update process and I hope Chris and the gang are reading this and will action it. It will generate so much more confidence in the app.
So, I would thoroughly recommend that app without exception. Thanks Power Tools.
Amazing support and great app. 10/10 would recommend. They actually helped me solve an issue that was not even part of the app but out theme.
Thanks for your lovely review, our support team is always happy to try help you get your store working at it's best!
There was an obscure issue with filtering on returning to the Collections page from the Product page as a result of the theme I was using. Bish, bash, bosh: identified and sorted in (almost) no time. Super service. Thanks!
Fantastic! And thanks for the great review!
I literally cannot select lower than 5* and here's why. Now, you may say this is a fake review, and i won't mind that, but the amount of help and actual work their team member Chris has done is amazing. We're running on a custom theme and we've had minor issues with the filters themselves. So the amazing Chris went ahead and fixed them. Unfortunately, our theme didn't like these changes, so we needed to make more adjustments which in the end lead to even better theme logic than it was before and it was all done by Chris within hours (literally, when he's online, he's a freaking lightning). He implemented changes that are way beyond filters but it made everything work together in an amazing sync.
I'd definately recommend this app just for the amazing support team and their will of making it work for you!
Great to hear, we really appreciate the fantastic review!
Fantastic app with lots of functionality. We sell over 400 items in our shop and this app helped our customers select by different categories!
My shop works a lot online and the team in 24h has customized my requests and is very professional. very good 5 stars. recommended
