Introduction

Most of the e-commerce websites provide nice UI for filter products on their website by using a different type of search filters like price range product filter and checkbox search filter. This type of product search filter with price range filter and checkbox product filter feature we have discussed here by using Ajax with PHP. In this post, we will describe to you how to search a product from a list of products by using Ajax JQuery PHP and Mysql. Here we have developed a product filter that is similar to the largest e-commerce website. They have used this type of search filter for filter products on their website, so users can easily filter products on different category search filters. If the user has select any price range then in this feature it will filter product which has been covered between that price range and the same way if the user wants to find a particular brand product which has come between that price range then the user can also select brand then it will live display all product which relate to a particular brand.

WP Fastest Site Search

This tutorial is based on the live filter of products using Ajax which has been used on most of the ecommerce websites. If you have visited any ecommerce website for buying products then you have first preferred price and at that price, we want to get a particular brand then you have to find a particular product then you can easily filter from the list of products on a web page without refresh of the web page. Here we have to get results by using Ajax Jquery with PHP and Mysql. To make this type of functionality for our web application we have to use the Jquery UI slider plugin for filter products on price and HTML Checkbox input field for filter products on different categories like brands etc. If the user selects a particular condition and that condition will match with data available in the database then that product will be display using PHP with Ajax. And if user clear filter then it will see all product on the web page. Below you can find the complete source code of Ajax PHP Product filter.
