With the current boom in eCommerce and the recent launch of WooCommerce 2.0 (which makes it really easy to sell your products online), the web is seeing an increasing pool of eCommerce websites selling larger and larger ranges of products.
With a large range of varying products, the most important factor in your customer’s time spent on your website is that they can find what they’re looking for quickly and easily, ultimately resulting in a purchase.
Today, with this in mind, we’re launching Product Finder, an advanced search extension for WooCommerce.
How Product Finder helps Woo… how can it help you?
Product Finder is designed to help your customers find exactly what they’re looking for and to search through your catalog using logical conditions. This could mean searching for all motorbikes by their engine class, colour and size, or searching for records by genre, format and category… Product Finder shapes itself to fit your store.
At WooThemes, the idea for Product Finder arose from our own product search form, found in our various product categories. This enables visitors to WooThemes.com to quickly find the exact type of theme or WooCommerce extension they’re looking for, as well as to see other options we’d like to recommend, based on the visitor’s search criteria. With our ever-growing product catalog, consisting of hundreds of products to choose from, we feel it is of utmost importance to help visitors find exactly what they’re looking for in a clear and intuitive manner.
In October 2012, when we redesigned everything on WooThemes.com, we introduced the advanced search functionality you see today when browsing through our product catalog. As a result of this, we’ve seen a notable increase in conversions.View the Product Finder listing View Product Finder on our Appply theme
How does Product Finder fit into my store?
Working with the native attributes and categories in your store, Product Finder allows granular control of which attributes are displayed to your customers, as well as giving the customer the opportunity to choose how each attribute factors into their search (for example, searching for products that contain one attribute but not another).
The plugin includes a template tag, shortcode and widget to display your search form where you feel is best suited to your website’s design.
With access to clear and informative documentation included with each purchase, integrating Product Finder into your website should be a matter of 1, 2, 3.
We look forward to seeing how Product Finder helps you to sell to your customers and helps your customers find what they’re looking for in your store.
