The add-on Make/Model/Year is intended primarily for sellers of auto and moto parts but can be used by any seller who can benefit from allowing shoppers to find products in their store catalog by year, make, model, or any additional fields configured with the help of this add-on. For example, this approach may be handy if selling things like computers, copiers, smartphones, etc.
You can use the add-on to configure up to four levels of filtering for the inventory.
The filters configured using the Make/Model/Year add-on will show up on all the pages of your online store. A shopper searching for parts for their vehicle will be able to select the make, model, year, and engine they require using the convenient selectors. The search results will be provided to them as a list of products with the characteristics that have been specified.
Note that “Make,” “Model,” “Year,” and “Engine” are just the names used by default. You can change them as you require and decrease the number of filtering levels in use (e.g., use only three levels instead of four).
The store will be able to “remember” the filter selections for non-registered/non-logged-in visitors.
Registered customers will also save the information about their vehicle in their account profile using the "Remember my vehicle" checkbox. Next time they shop at your store, they will be able to see the parts for their specific vehicle right away without the need to adjust the filters.
