Yes, it is possible to add a filter for gender in Shopify. One way to achieve this is by using product tags to indicate the gender of the product (e.g., "men" or "women"), and then creating a collection that filters products by those tags. You can then add this collection to your navigation menu or create a dedicated page for it. Here are the general steps to follow:

 

-Tag your products with the appropriate gender tag (e.g., "men" or "women").
-Create a new collection in your Shopify admin by going to Products > Collections > Create Collection.
-Under "Conditions", choose "Product tag" and then select the appropriate gender tag (e.g., "men" or "women").
-Choose a name and URL for your collection.
-Save the collection.
-Add the collection to your navigation menu or create a dedicated page for it.


By following these steps, you should be able to create a filter for gender in Shopify that allows customers to easily browse products by their preferred gender.

Hello Daniel, To create custom filters for "men" and "women" in Shopify, you can follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to your Shopify admin dashboard and go to the Products section.
  2. Click on the "Filters" tab, then select "Create filter group."
  3. Name the filter group something like "Gender" or "Men/Women."
  4. Click "Create filter" and select "Text."
  5. Name the filter "Gender" and select "Dropdown" as the display type.
  6. Under "Options," add "Men" and "Women" as options.
  7. Save the filter.
  8. In the product page, add the "Gender" tag to the relevant products. You can do this by going to the product's details page and adding the "Gender" tag in the "Tags" section.
  9. Now, your customers can filter products by gender by selecting either "Men" or "Women" from the "Gender" filter on your collection pages.
  10. Repeat the process for any other custom filters you would like to create.

Note: This process may vary slightly depending on your Shopify theme and settings.

You need to create a filter using Tags. And the use of the Women and Men tags as filter options.

This app does support that feature https://apps.shopify.com/ultimate-search-and-filter-1

You are correct. I've been trying to use the create filter > Tags > Select values. I'm using the OR condition, and it's displaying every tag that women or men has with it. SUPER annoying. 

This should be a feature already in shopify. Shocked it doesn't exist.
