SS WooCommerce Ajax Filters

SS WooCommerce Ajax Filters (SSWCAF) is a simple yet powerful WordPress plugin created for Ajax Filtering of WooCommerce products. The plugin works seamlessly with WordPress, WooCommerce and any decently coded theme. The plugin lets you filter products based on multiple attributes, price range, publish date, popularity, average rating, etc., all in one ajax call. i.e. users can choose multiple filters at once and hit the “Apply” button to get desired result. It works differently in a way that no multiple queries are sent for each attribute or filter parameter.

Check the left sidebar on Live Demo for filter widgets and their working.

How it works

SSWCAF comes with four built in widgets (Attributes, price range, sorting order and reset all). Using these widgets you can place as many instances of attributes as needed. For example, consider three widget instances for color, size and brand attribute. Your visitor can choose color, brand, size and then hit the button to show products which match these three criteria. The benefit is that visitor will not have to run the query three times for each of these attributes.If no results are found, use can uncheck some of those attributes and run the query again.
