Our old website used categories to organize our products. As a matter of fact, we had over 350 categories to manage under 3000 products. While we understand that our loyal customers were familiar with this system, it was getting unwieldly and difficult to maintain.
Instead of using categories to help you find exactly what you’re looking for, we now use ‘filters’. If you’ve ever used websites like amazon.com or ebay.com, then you know what filters are. It’s where you check the boxes in the sidebar to help narrow your search results so you can quickly find what you’re looking for! Start by selecting your main category, and then use the filters to quickly drill down.
For example, many of our long time and loyal customers shop our website for AK parts. We haven’t forgotten about you!
From the top menu, hover over AK-47/AK-74 and click AK Parts
This will display ALL the AK parts that we carry, which is extensive! On the left sidebar, look for the red box titled AK PARTS and click that.
This opens the AK Parts filters, where you can choose the type of parts you are searching for. In this example, we clicked ‘Barrels’ to narrow our results down to AK barrels. We could also narrow our results further by checking the ‘In Stock’ filter or the ‘Caliber’ filter.
This method works for every category. Want to see our line of Arex RexZero 1 pistols?
Click Products >> Firearms >> Handguns. Then filter by ‘Manufacturers’ choosing ‘Arex’.
Clear a filter out by clicking it under the SELECTED OPTIONS at the top of the page.
You can also change the way displayed products are sorted, shown, and the number per page with the settings at the top of the page.
Phones and tablets can use the same method, you just have to know where the filters are! They’re right here – this funny looking button!
Remember though, it will only show up on category pages where there is something to filter. (That's why when you just looked, you didn't see it)
Here we have selected ‘Barrels’ again to apply that filter to our AK Parts products.
