Layered Navigation for Magento 2
Make catalog navigation simple, fast and stress-free.
Layered Navigation Gallery
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
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
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.
Slider and From-To filters
Enhance customer satisfaction with the two filter options for numeric and price attributes - Slider and From-To. Moreover, you can decide on continuous or discrete behavior for the Slider option, thus allowing users to find affordable items at ease.
Configure the category tree filter to provide convenient navigation throughout categories on any catalog page, turning guest users into buyers.
Save customers time with AJAX support that allows displaying products immediately without the whole page reloading. Automatic update of matching items occurs every time a new filter is selected, so the customers can see the filter results in a second.
Provide customers with an option to reload the page manually with the help of the ‘Show X more’ pop-over. In this case, customers can select multiple values in bulk and see all the relevant options. Whenever users decide on the set of attributes, they can reload the page by simply clicking the button.
While the catalog is being filtered, some product attributes get unavailable but still stay visible. If the filter is no longer available for a particular product selection, you can hide it, so it doesn’t distract the customers.
Make your catalog and category pages more SEO-friendly with URL structure setup; optional no-index for category pages; meta title and description; category and filter variables in meta description; redirect, robot tags, indexing, and more.
Tailor filters values and modes according to your specific business needs.
Display ‘New’, ‘On Sale’, ‘In Stock’ filters for even more accurate navigation.
Configurable filter types for various kinds of attributes.
Each filter ‘remembers’ its state within a customer session.
Let customers find products of a particular brand with filtering by brand attribute.
