Boost’s product filter is easy to customize as it has dynamic options. Users can use default filter options like collection filter, filter by size, by price, color, ratings… using tags and meta fields to create whatever option they want.
There are two premade filter trees after you install the app, which saves you a lot of time for creating the product filter. However, it’s simple to start from scratch thanks to the step-by-step guidelines and the instant support via live chat, email, or phone call.
With the filtering solutions of the Boost app, you can also change the display of the filter options (whether it’s a box, list, color swatch, range slider, etc), display tooltips to explain industry jargon in the filter tree, and many more customizations in the storefront.
Site search solutions of Boost take the search experience to the next level with a dropdown widget that shows smart suggestions
Users can promote certain keywords with Suggestion dictionary, merging different search terms to one search result using Synonyms, removing unnecessary words with Stop words to increase relevancy. The instant search widget of Boost Product Filter & Search also suggests collections, articles, pages and provides search redirects.
Moreover, thanks to an innovative system, the Boost app can offer real-time indexation and synchronization. The app works seamlessly at a blazing-fast speed of around 200ms for up to 100,000 products.
Also, with Merchandising feature, Shopify merchants have a lot more options for product promotion on search.
This feature allows Shopify merchants to automatically align marketing strategies with search and filter after they set up in-app merchandising conditions.
These conditions can be rule-based to apply for an item group or they can also be product ranking applied for a single product. In both categories, Boost users can set the timer and the priority level, which is convenient when sales strategies update regularly.
If the first three features provide tools to optimize conversion rates, Analytics is where you can verify their utility. Boost’s analytics show how much your online stores have earned via customers’ search and filter engagement. This is a crucial metric to know if the app is worth your investment.
In addition, you can have a better understanding of your customers with their search log and filtering activities.
