Predictive search, filtered menu, stealth products, and categories and bulk product editing are all included in our latest PinnacleCart release.
Simply log-in to your store and start the upgrade process to take advantage of our latest and greatest eCommerce features! Not sure how to upgrade the latest PinnacleCart tools? This article will help.
1) Predictive Search
Predictive Search is a no-setup-needed feature that makes the ‘Search’ tool on your storefront much more intuitive and easier to use. When customers start typing their search term into the search box, the cart will automatically suggest different items that match what they’ve typed in.
Yes, it can predict the future!
This is similar to what happens when you do a Google search and words fill in so that users don’t need to type the full product name in order find what they are looking for. It’s a great feature and we’re proud to be adding it in our latest PinnacleCart modifications.
2) Filtered Menu – $14.95/mo
Filtered Menu, also known as ‘Product Filters’, is a robust feature that allows you to create a ‘Refine By’ menu that shows on the storefront. Customers can use the ‘Refine By’ menu to filter products shown on category and search result pages.
This navigation concept is seen in many top stores, including Amazon, eBay, NewEgg, and more. Using this tool, customers can filter their search results by product characteristics for things like Product Type, Color, Gender, Size and more. As the cart admin, you have complete control over the filters available and how they appear to your customers.
Here’s an example of the Filtered Menu feature in action:
While this feature is included in the upgrade, it will need to be activated through the “Apps Center” in the control panel of your cart. Click here to learn more about the “Apps” section.
Other features included in this release:
3) Stealth Products and Categories
You can now set products and categories to be invisible, making them only accessible by direct URL. Are you running a special promotion or about to release a new product line? Stealth makes it possible to restrict access to certain products. This means only shoppers that you’ve shared the product link with can view them.
4) Bulk Product Editing
Now you can edit a selected set of product fields in bulk on the product list page.
Our next release is just a week or two away. What’s included? We can’t give it all away, but expect to see a much-improved integration with Intuit’s QuickBooks.
