Recent research has shown 73% of users leave an online store within two minutes if they don’t find what they want. The explanation for this phenomenon is simple: potential customers just get lost in the abundance of products and, as a result,  become impatient. Therefore, powerful catalog navigation is a must-have for online stores selling products with a great variety of attributes.


Help users find what they need easily and speed up the buying process with a professionally organized catalog navigation! Save customers’ time with AJAX loading: show matching products right after filters are applied without reloading a whole page. Find matching products effectively thanks to multi-filter mode, price sliders, filter icons, and more. Enhance user purchasing experience by removing out-of-stock products from the display. On top of that, drive more traffic to catalog pages with SEO improvements.

Provide intuitive product navigation

Save customers’ time and increase the accuracy of the system response to the search queries. Enable expanding or collapsing of filters, add visually-informative images to the names and values of the attributes, opt for either a single- or multi-select filter mode, and decide on hiding unavailable filter values from view. Provide seamless filtering without constant page reloading due to the AJAX option, thus contributing to a stress-free, intuitive user experience with ultimate catalog navigation.

Multi- and single-select modes

Multi- and single-select modes

Opt for multi - or single-select filtering mode according to your store needs. With multi-select mode customers can choose several values of the same filter, thus comparing items and finding the most suitable one faster. 

Filter display modes

Filter display modes

Let customers navigate the catalog intuitively by choosing various display options for different filters: checkbox, swatch, button, text field, or others. Visualize the attributes of the filter adding images to them. Decide on the look of the filter attributes: name, swatch, or combination of both.
