Here we are, on time as always, ready for our third update of the year for our favorite software: WebSite X5.
After digging into SEO with Structured Data in v2020.2, version 2020.3 puts the focus back on e-commerce, developing a product search feature for online shopping carts, introducing the option to adjust shipping costs by country, and increasing safeguards for supported payment systems. That's not all, of course: it was also time to review how user comments and ratings were displayed, and to update the Row Style window to make it more user-friendly.
We're sure that you'll appreciate all these new updates, because you requested many of them yourselves. Let's take a closer look at them.
| Customized product search filters
When we launched v2020.1 in April, we introduced the e-commerce search engine, which was a hit. After all, when a store starts to offer a large number of products for sale, it's crucial to give Customers the ability to quickly find exactly what they're looking for.
Now, you can make your search page even more powerful because, in addition to the classic Search bar and standard filters that display items by category, by price range, or only new products or sale items, you can also add very useful customized filters.
The mechanism behind it is very simple. Want to allow your clients to search by "brand", "model", or "dimensions"? All you need to do is create and configure the right properties for each product, and you're all set. Each property you configure automatically becomes a filter that your Customers can use to search for products in your online catalog.
