Shopify is an eCommerce plugin that is widely used with WordPress in order to set up an online store. When we are talking about online stores, searching for the desired product plays an important role in making a sale. There are multiple types of search available, but the one we are interested in is the faceted search which you allow you to search for products based on the specified category, tag, or any posts.
To perform this type of search more effectively there are multiple plugins available to be integrated with Shopify but we would recommend you using BoostCommerce.
With the help of this plugin, you will be able to perform the most advanced search operations like filtering based on the brand, product type, price, category etc. with ease. You will have a plethora of options to provide to your users using this plugin and it is cost-effective as well. You can also implement its smart auto-suggestion option which will provide real time suggestions for the user to select from while searching.
