What is Price Filter/ Price Navigation?

Configuring price filter/price navigation successfully means classifying the product by price in the navigation. There are 3 methods supported to calculate price navigation: Automatic (Equalize Price Ranges), Automatic (Equalize Product Counts), and Manual. While the first two methods allow auto-calculating, the manual needs to set the price interval. For example, the interval is 10 and the price step by 10 includes:

  • $20.00 - $29.99 (1)
  • $30.00 - $39.99 (2)
