Product Parts Finder by Amasty

Amasty Info

Please find full description, live demo and user guide at Magento Product Parts Finder module page

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! Partial search.

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.

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 be applied only in ‘Tires’ category and motor oil finder will be applied 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 on 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.

Apply only current finder on pages with two or more finders

In case you have more than one finder on a page, now you can easily clear all already specified conditions for other (previous) finders on this page in order not to narrow down search parameters. It means that only one finder will be applied at a time.

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.

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.

Manage universal products display in search results

Due to this option you can display more relevant search results first and and then place universal products. Therefore you'll increase customers' satisfaction by providing them with the items they really need.

NEW! Automatically load drop-down menu values

When a customer fills in the first drop-down in the menu, the next drop-down will be loaded automatically – on the condition that the first drop-down has just a single value.

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.

NEW! Possibility to import large size files piece by piece.

Since now you can import large size files piece by piece, and see the import process progress. It is up to you whether to import files manually via drag and drop option or upload it via FTP. After downloading, you can check all the imported files on the Import History tab in admin panel.

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.

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.

Advanced cache option for Enterprise edition

With this cache feature all finder search results pages will be automatically excluded from from cache.

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.

magento search categories

Additional information.

Is compatible with layered navigation.

Magento search results produced by the extension can be further filtered with the help of layered navigation.

    About the SKU part Is it possible to search a product without the input SKU on the products reccord? How?

    Asked by: jickael21
    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 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 Dhvanit, Do you mean Full Page Cache extension? Then make sure you didn't delete amfpc.xml while uninstalling the module. You may also try to disable the compilation, check how the module runs and then to recompile. If nothing helps, please submit a support ticket here: Best Regards, Amasty Team

    Support for This Extension

    The best place to start if you need help with a specific extension is to contact the developer. All Magento developers have both a contact email and a support email listed.

    Magento Platform Support

    If you need support for a Magento platform, there are different options for support depending on which Magento platform you are using. Below are links for specific platforms.


    About the Developer

    This extension was developed by and is supported by Amasty

    Product Parts Finder by Amasty is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I needed a way of filtering roughly 25 manufacturers and 1800 product parts over about 500 engines. Product finder turned out to be the easiest way of doing it and when I finally got around to doing the job, it was really very simple. It looks complicated (but it isn't), you just need to make the csv's to import and you're pretty much done. Support was great on both occasions (I must learn to read the instructions) and I've no problem recommending both Parts Finder and Amasty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Extension For User Experience This extension is very well written to allow searching/filtering beyond what is normally possible with Magento. When used with Amasty Improved Navigation the filtering and category configurations are practically Limitless. Excellent product support. Highly recommended
    Date published: 2015-02-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth each dollar we paid for it! I bet this module is one of the most flexible and handy YMM/tools you can find in the market. I’m really grateful to Amasty team that made some modifications for my car parts store and patiently answered to all my questions. Unlike other similar tools this one can search items in a particular category if you place the finder on a category page – this was exactly what we needed. With the help of support guys we quickly made all necessary changes and now customers find the parts they need much faster. Hope to see analytics/reports option in your future updates in order to track which products are being searched more often. Thank you guys!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Extension from Great Developer We've used the Products Parts Finder since the inception of our online store. As a car parts manufacturer it's important to be able to find products that fit specific applications of vehicles and Amasty's extension works wonders. Load a simple CSV to add the data and populate the drop downs. The template file is easy to read and between that and the CSS is very flexible. I use the Finder in side columns and inline depending on where it's needed. Since each Finder has it's own data you can use one for each of the many things you need it for. The extension is good but the Developers are fantastic. If you ask anybody about Amasty's customer service they'll say the same. They WILL provide help, they WILL answer questions and they WON'T try to give you the run around. The customer service alone makes their extensions a bargain. (My Magento Version is actually 1.9.1)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best YMM/Product Finder Extension around!!! Don't waste your time with other YMM/product finder extensions. This is the best! Easiest to install. Easiest to set up. Accurate. I use this extension for parts lookup by YMM. It works flawlessly and allows me the freedom to customize it how I need. It also allows for one product to have more than one YMM and actually filters the products correctly, unlike the other YMM extensions. I can't praise Amasty enough! This extension is a home run and took my business to a whole new level. Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! This is a great filter for having a Year, Make, Model search with Magento. Perhaps I did not read up on all of the features but I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that the filter may be enabled to remember the users selected vehicle so the so site only shows parts that will fit as they browse through the categories. Although I have over 10 years e-commerce experience, I am a novice when it comes to Magento. With that said, installation was easy enough for me by just following the installation guide. After searching far and wide for the best solution I think I have found it and for less than $100.00!

We had 2 problems and created a ticket on their support center, within 2 days all of our bugs were gone and the product finder was working perfectly.

Perfect!
