WooCommerce AJAX product filters with multiple filter selection per call
WooCommerce Ajax Plugin lets you filter products based on multiple attributes, price range, publish date, popularity, average rating, stock status, etc., all in one ajax call. i.e. users can choose multiple filters at once and hit the “Apply” button to get desired result. No multiple queries are sent for each attribute or filter parameter. Optionally, you can choose to show ajax results per click if you do not like the “Apply” button feature.
Check the left sidebar on Live Demo for filter widgets and their working.
How it works
The plugin comes with five built in widgets (Attributes, price range, sorting order, stock status 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, users can uncheck some of those attributes and run the query again.
Important: This plugin requires at least WooCommerce v2.6. It will not work below that version.
