on the trigger
Adding filters to an online store helps your customers quickly find the products they are looking for, thus improving conversion and the average order value.
There are several options to filter products in a Shopify store: to use the basic filtering available in your theme, install an app, or modify your theme’s code.
Use default theme settings
Some themes have enhanced filtering as part of their code, you can check these settings from your theme editor. If your theme has this functionality by default, all you need is to add tags to products and enjoy the results. If your theme lacks filtering functionality, you may want to consider changing the theme, especially if you are just starting out.
Use an app
If you’d like to keep the current theme, which doesn’t have the filtering you need, another way to go would be to install one of the apps from the Shopify App Store. The apps differ by the provided functionality and monthly fees and may have an impact on the performance of your store. However, if the app is chosen carefully, it can quickly provide the results you need.
Edit the theme’s code
Setting up custom filtering once and for all can be a perfect solution if you’d like to keep a smooth performance of your store and not to pay the recurring charges for using an app. There are many specifics depending on the theme you are using that should be considered while coding, so we recommend that these changes would be made only by professional Shopify developers.
