App Onboarding

Introduction

Product Filter & Search app provides the best search and navigation, including three features: Filter functions, Instant Search and Suggestion, and Full Search Result.
We offer a 14-day free trial for all merchants without any payment action. Let's get started!

Getting Started

1
In the first step of the installation, log in your Shopify account and access https://apps.shopify.com/ or access  Apps section from your admin page and click on Install app button.
2
Next, you are prompted to select your preferred filter layout: Vertical or Horizontal.
3
After that, our app will run two processes:
  • Index data: 

    The app will fetch your Shopify data by synchronizing the product's and collection's data 

    Product Filter and Search app will sync with Shopify data and use it to set conditions for creating filter options. The filter option is created based on product attributes (Product Options - Size, Color, etc, Tags, Vendor, etc.) so please make sure these attributes are available in your store.
  • Auto-Setup process: 

    The app will automatically duplicate your live theme and rename the new theme as [Boost] Live theme with filter & search 1. You can test our features on this theme without affecting your live theme.
    • If your theme is on our supported theme list, we will keep the layout of your current theme. We use Javascript to clone the logic of displaying product list from Liquid.
    • Otherwise, we will set up our Default layout (view demo) for your store.
4
You now can preview this duplicated theme with our app on by clicking the  Preview the filter button 

To preview the setup theme again, simply click  View theme status on our app Homepage.
When you feel happy with the theme having our app on, publish it by following instructions via this link.
5
After looking into the theme, get back to the admin page and verify the setup. We are here to assist you if there is an issue.

Finally, hit Take me to Homepage button to get into the app Homepage. You can continue to create your desired filters and manage advanced search features.
