This is by far the basic requirement for any ecommerce platform. All other CMS provides this. Shopify forgot to build.
You can Filter COLLECTION PAGE Based on Tag/Type/Collection Sort by Price but you cannot Filter Search Results Based on Tag/Type/Collection Sort by Price.
How do we achieve this? Please do not provide links to apps. Which costs hefty amount for larger inventory.
Basically the apps index our products and provide search results. Since Shopify have all our products indexed why cant they provide a better search results.
Shopify search results are the lamest. Its the most important feature for any ecommerce platform, for the customer to choose a brand or sort by price. Shopify just displays results in a page, users cant even sort.
We have a 600,000 products and a 4 letter keyword search will usually result in 10000-50000 results. Our store is based on electronic products and a search for "wire" will give 46,871 results. How do you think a customer will get the product he is looking for? HE NEEDS TO FILTER THE RESULTS.
Please let us know how to achive this? All apps support max about 50,000 products and charge extremely high for 600,000 products.
THIS IS A MUST HAVE FEATURE FOR SHOPIFY. ITS HIGH TIME YOU BUILD IT
Note: Our products have Tags, Vendor Information, Type etc.
Seán here from Shopify :)
I've looked into this for you and found an app available called Findify Search, Recommendations & Collections. This app improves upon the internal store search feature by offering product recommendations and search filtering. It's also fully supported by the developers, whom you can get in touch with by clicking on 'Get support' from the app page in the store.
In the meantime, I'll pass on filtered searches to our developers here as a feature request for you. While I can't make any guarantees on when or if they'll implement it, they'll definitely look into it :)
Hope this helps! Feel free to get in touch with the Guru team if you have any questions.
All the best,

Any plan on adding this to Shopify in the near future?
I don't think this is something that needs a "feature request" it is a basic core functionality that any ecommerce platform should have and it's a shame that Shopify does not have this basic feature
Do you have any update on this 2 years later? I'm sure a lot of stores are under-performing because of that. Is there a plan to include this BASIC feature to shopify?
