Some of the Bonus Features of the Woo Choice Plugin.

If you already read the previous post about Woo Choice Plugin, then I guess you are well aware of Woo Choice Plugin (if not, then you can read here). If we move further in detail, then Woo Choice Plugin has many features to offer.

So, today, I will provide more information about Woo Choice Plugin, or specifically, I will talk with you about some bonus features of this plugin.

So what will be that Bonus feature?

There are many bonus features available in the Woo Choice Plugin, but today, I’m going to talk about only two main bonus features, that are:

  1. FILTERS FOR SHOP/CATEGORY PAGE.
  2. THE SHORTCODE FILTERS.

FILTERS FOR SHOP/CATEGORY PAGE.

Filters For Shop/Category Page provides features of Product Filter on Shop Page and Category Page. This plugin module contains advanced tools that make it easier to create a Product Filter on Shop Page and Category Page. And, all these filters are ajax based.

This feature also helps to create the customized diamond search page with advanced filter widgets. For example, if you are in the Diamond/Jewelry industry and if you want to create the diamond feed page, then this plugin is a perfect choice for creating a customizable diamond feed page while adding unique features.

This feature allows you to choose any data source for the product’s filter, For example, categories, attributes, manual input, taxonomies, Product Price, and so on for the product’s filter.

This feature provides all kinds of UI elements like Buttons, Buttons with multi-selects, sliders, Dropdowns, Dropdowns with Icons, and of course Icon and Icons with multi-selects swatches. You can also use the horizontal styled filter to create your Shop/Category page widgets. It also provides a variety of alternate UI/UX widgets for the Shop/Category page.

But the process will take time.

Just click on Add sample and Finish, then you just need to add sample data and configuration.

2 Adding the sample data

While adding the sample data, there will be 3- steps.

In the first step, create sample categories.

And in the third step, create products.

3 Filter for Shop/Category Page and their Configuration

Let me guide you through that,

The Shortcode filter is the other bonus feature that I’m going to talk about today. You can use this filter to insert live search, live filtering inside any page, and it provides shortcodes to build a dynamic shop page. You can create customizable shortcode filters with the filter of any input type anywhere on any webpage.

The Shortcodes make it a lot easier for you to work with graphical content and other functionality even if you have limited technical knowledge or no knowledge at all. If you do not know how to use shortcodes, then refer to this guide.

Shortcodes are very similar to widgets, you can choose to use widgets, but shortcodes give you the advantage of using short-codes anywhere on any page. It also works for the call-to-action filter anywhere on your landing pages.

Things that matter:

Being in the diamond industry, sometimes you need a large inventory for your product on your website. For that reason, we provided an extension to solve such problems. If you have requirements regarding the large inventory then, you can use the Diamond APIs Integration extension.

Diamond APIs Integration extension is used to integrate all Diamond APIs like Rapnet Instant Inventory API, Direct API Providers (Glow Star Diamond API, JB Diamond API, SRK Diamond API) and Others (DEX (International Diamond Exchange API), MID House of Diamonds API, POLYGON Virtual Inventory API, GEMFIND Diamond Link API, VDB (Virtual Diamond Boutique API), JewelCloud API). It provides the feature of handling a large inventory with 100k diamonds or more than 100k products without losing the site’s speed.
