Products finders make your store more user-friendly.


magento year-make-model

Let customers find the right products easily.

Most products have just a few key characteristics, to which customers pay most attention. So it is very important in Magento to make advanced search by the key parameters as easy as possible. If you are the owner of a Magento auto parts store, it should be easy to choose year of production, car make and model.If you sell phone batteries, it should be easy to search them by phone manufacturer, model or capacity. This is a standard feature for stores, which sell parts and customers are used to it, so without this functionality your site will be a lot less user friendly. In addition the product finders work well both with standard Magento layered navigation and with our Improved Navigation, only the product finders work a lot faster.

Selected options are saved.

All options chosen by customers are saved. This way they can freely browse other pages of your store and find all their selections remaining when they get back to the page where they used product finders.

new! Specify additional product values during the search process.

This option significantly enhances the search process. Now customers don’t need to choose all product finder values from the scratch each time they want to select an additional parameter. It means that at first they can choose only one value and start looking for certain products. In case customers want to select different values in the dropdowns they can choose them right from their search results page without interrupting the whole process.

Display search results in one relevant category

In case you’ve got more than one line of products in your online store, our Magento advanced search category tool is just what you are looking for. With this tool it’s much more convenient to display search results in one particular category with the relevant products, thus helping your customers not only find what they need but to look through the list of similar or related items and purchase even more.

new! Ability to apply finders only on the pages of the categories where they are displayed.

Let’s say you have absolutely different types of products in different categories like tires and motor oil. It makes no sense to apply tire make and radius filter to motor oil, so when you can activate this option, tire product finder will apply only in ‘Tires’ category and motor oil finder will apply only in ‘Motor Oil’ category.

Creation and display of product finders.


Add unlimited number of product finders.

You can create a separate product finder for each category. This way you can appropriately setup a Magento product filter for each type of products. Let's say you have two categories - cell phone accessories and camera accessories. You can create a separate filter with cell phone makes and models and camera makes and models, so customers have appropriate selection options in each category. You can display several product finder blocks on one page.

Display product finders at the home page.

The module allows to add product finder blocks to the store home page. So now you will give your customers a better shopping experience right from the start. Let’s say you sell parts for cars and parts for motorcycles. Place 2 finders for both categories on home page. The customers will be happy to find what they need without deep examination of the whole range of products.

Create product finder filters with unlimited number of selection options.

The extension enables you to create filters of year-make-model kind and this is just the start. You can create product finder filters from one to unlimited number of selection options. For example you can have simple filters which will allow to find cartridges by printer manufacturer and model or more complex ones with year, make, model and equipment level options.

new! Show universal products regardless of what options are chosen in a finder.

For each finder you can import universal products. These products will be displayed in search results for every search query. This can be very convenient when certain products, e.g. some oils or lubricants, match every selection in a product finder. Universal products are shown at the bottom of the search results page.

Multiple options for data import and display.


magento part finder

Import values for product finder options.

You can import values for selection options of product finders and link them to appropriate products, so no 'fun' of manual entry. The import works fast and is optimized for large volumes of information. Of course, you can view the imported data to check if it is accurate and up to date.

Multiple associations are possible.

Any number of products can be assigned to each option. For example you can have multiple products assigned to each year, make and model.

Ranges for numeric values.

To simplify the import of data you can specify ranges for numeric options. E.g. if you specify years 1990-2012, the extension will add the product to all years starting from 1990 till 2012. This way you will have just one line in csv file instead of 23.

Ascending and descending sorting options for dropdown values.

You can select ascending or descending sorting for each product finder option. Text values will be sorted by alphabet, numeric values by numeric order.

new! It is possible to delete and create individual records for finders.

You won't have to export a new .csv file just to remove or add a few products to the finder. You can delete and add individual products with their options right on the finder page in admin panel.

Visualization and performance.


magento parts finder

Flexible design.

You can either use templates provided with the extension or create your own templates to make the product finders look exactly as you like. Also you can display the same finder block as both vertical and horizontal in different places. For example, as vertical in one location and as horizontal in the other location.

NEW! Compatibility with Magento RWD themes

The extension is designed to be fully compatible with responsive Magento themes. It meets the requirements of widescreen, tablet and mobile view.

Optimized for large volumes of data.

The extension performance has been optimized, so it can easily cope with large catalogs of 10000 products and more. We use AJAX to load options for better performance. Also the data stored in separate tables, not in Magento attributes, for quick access.

Custom links to search results pages.

For each product finder you can specify url of the page, to which customers are redirected after doing a search.

new!Bookmark pages with search results

You’ve got a wonderful opportunity to enhance your customers’ experience by implementing the feature of bookmarking pages in search results. Now there is no need to browse through numerous pages with products trying to find something you’ve already selected, as all the pages with search results have their unique URLs and can be easily bookmarked.

    About the Developer

    This extension was developed by and is supported by Amasty

    Product Parts Finder by Amasty 4.6 5 19 19
    I just bought and installed this extension and it is better than advertised. Really easy to install and works great. Customer service and tech support was quick and effective. This is my 2nd extension from them and will continue purchasing from them. October 26, 2012
    Works brilliantly. If I had any criticisms they would be: 1)If you have 3 dropdowns, all 3 must be filled by the customer before they can search. It would be nice to have the option to select 1 or 2 of the dropdowns to offer a broader search. 2)The price advertised is not including VAT in the UK. The price including VAT is $96. Still worth the money though, good product. October 18, 2012
    Works great, easy to install. But it would be nice with some Fits/Mapping management on the backend seperated to each Finder and Universal product option. August 10, 2012
    I just installed the Amasty Parts Finder and it works just as advertised. The documentations is very good and the support is even better, fast and very helpful. You definitely have a repeat customer. Thank you! June 21, 2012
    I just installed Amasty PPF. With some help from Amasty, the finder is working as advertised. I appreciate the prompt and helpful responses from customer service. May 29, 2012
    This module is just great. Easy install and configuration on upgraded to 1.6.2 magento site. Works on homepage too. Here I had a little problem but support service solved it very fast. Nice people. I would recommend Amasty to anyone in need of their work. This is my second module from them. Thanks a lot Amasty. keep up the good work May 24, 2012
    Hello,, all i have spoke with the support again,, and they really helped me a lot ,, thanks a lot Amasty,, February 16, 2012
    Hello,, i purchased the extension yesterday but it does not work for me ,,, i need help please. February 15, 2012
    It works...and it's cheap! It took a bit of head-scratching at first though when I installed it as it didn't seem to work at all. What I missed at first is that the static block needs to be in a category containing the linked products - for instance if you were selling Air Filters, you would need to display the block in your Air Filters category or landing page, and have all your products visible. The plus side is that you CAN have multiple products assigned to seach dropdowns - for instance if you have 2 air filters, a standard one and a performance one, for a 2001 Audi A4, you can search for Audi > A4 > 2001 and both filters will be displayed For neatness I would have rather had this in a main category that is just a CMS block, without displaying about 450 products below in the standard category view, and only show products once the filter is applied. But that is just my own preference and needs. Being open source I hope as my experience with magento develops I will be able to tweak this extension to suit my own specific needs - but I AM being overly fussy and if one is that particular one can't expect any out of the box extension to be exactly what is needed, as one person's needs might be different from another's. Absolute simplicity to install and works fine with the themes I have, I will check this developer's offerings for any future extension requirements :-) February 8, 2012

    Answer: 
    Hello,

    the Product Parts Finder extension can't search the product without the input SKU on the product record.

    But may be the Improved Layered Navigation http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/improved-layered-navigation-by-amasty.html can help? This module allows filtering products by their attributes like: price, color etc. Moreover, the extension is perfectly compatible with Product Parts Finder.

    Hi,
    is it possible to show an image after - for example - the second select?

    I mean. I choose model: BMW. Than I choose: series 1 and appears in a near box an image of BMW 1. Then i can select the version: 2.0 TD.

    thanks
