A faceted WooCommerce is used when you have thousands of products listed on your site, it becomes difficult for customers to find what they are looking for. That’s where product filters come in handy. Woocommerce Product Filter filters products consistent with different tags like price, colour, category, etc.
WooCommerce provides product filter widget by default. WooCommerce product filter might be too limiting but if you want something with more filters, you can also add more elements by using a plugin.
Having WooCommerce product filter makes it easy for customer to search and add products by using the filter they require. To get more from the faceted filters you can use plugins like Advanced Woo Search which will provide with extra filter options like based on categories, tags, title etc. that too with great ease.
