Products finders make your store more user-friendly

Let customers find the right products easily

Most products have just a few key characteristics, to which customers pay most attention. So it is very important in Magento to make advanced search by the key parameters as easy as possible.

If you are the owner of a Magento 1 auto parts store, you need car parts filters, so it whould be easy to choose year of production, car make and model. If you sell phone batteries, it should be easy to search them by phone manufacturer, model or capacity. This is a standard feature for stores, which sell parts and customers are used to it, so without such search filters your site will be a lot less user friendly.

In addition the product finders work well both with standard Magento 1 layered navigation and with our Improved Navigation, only the product finders work a lot faster.

magento year-make-model

Possibility to apply finders only on the pages of the categories where they are displayed

Let’s say you have absolutely different types of products in different categories like tires and motor oil. It makes no sense to apply tire make and radius filter to motor oil, so when you activate this option, tire product finder will be applied only in ‘Tires’ Magento 1 search category and motor oil finder will be applied only in ‘Motor Oil’ category.

Partial search

Magento 1 advanced search dropdown option significantly enhances the search process. Now customers don’t need to choose all product finder values from the scratch each time they want to select an additional parameter.

Display search results in one relevant category

In case you’ve got more than one line of products in your online store, our Magento 1 advanced search category tool is just what you are looking for. With this tool it’s much more convenient to display search results in one particular category with the relevant products, thus helping your customers not only find what they need but to look through the list of similar or related items and purchase even more.

Selected options are saved

All options chosen by customers are saved. This way they can freely browse other pages of your store and find all their selections remaining when they get back to the page where they used product finders.

Creation and display of product finders

display in category

Locate parts finder anywhere with one click

Place the product parts finder in particular themes, categories, and other locations. It is possible to display it on both sides, in content, or footer. With multi-select, specify one or various categories to display a parts finder in.

Add unlimited number of product finders

You can create a separate product finder for each category. This way you can appropriately setup a Magento 1 product filter for each type of products. Let's say you have two categories - cell phone accessories and camera accessories. You can create a separate filter with cell phone makes and models and camera makes and models, so customers have appropriate selection options in each category. You can display several product finder blocks on one page.

Add finders to home page automatically

The module allows to add product finder blocks to the store default category (home page) automatically. You can provide your customers with a better shopping experience right from the start. Let’s say you sell parts for cars and parts for motorcycles. Place 2 search filters for both categories on home page.

Apply only current finder if there are two or more finders

In case you have more than one finder on a page, you can easily clear all already specified conditions for previous finders on this page in order not to narrow down search parameters - only one finder will be applied at a time.

Create product finder filters with unlimited number of selection options

The extension enables you to create filters of year-make-model kind and this is just the start. You can create product finder filters from one to unlimited number of selection options. For example you can have simple filters which will allow to find cartridges by printer manufacturer and model or more complex ones with year, make, model and equipment level options.

Show universal products regardless of what options are chosen in a finder

For each finder you can import universal products. These products will be displayed in search results for every Magento search query. This can be very convenient when certain products, e.g. some oils or lubricants, match every selection in a product finder.

Manage universal products display in search results

Due to this option you can display more relevant search results first and and then place universal products. Therefore you'll increase customers' satisfaction by providing them with the items they really need.

Multiple options for data import and display

Import values for product finder options

You can import values for selection options of product finders and link them to appropriate products, so no 'fun' of manual entry. The import works fast and is optimized for large volumes of information. Of course, you can view the imported data to check if it is accurate and up to date.
NEW | XLS (XLSX) import available.

Possibility to import large size files partialy

Since now you can import large size files piece by piece, and see the import process progress. It is up to you whether to import files manually via drag and drop option or upload it via FTP. After downloading, you can check all the imported files on the Import History tab in admin panel.

magento parts finder

Advanced cache option for Enterprise edition

With this cache feature all finder search results pages will be automatically excluded from from cache.

Ranges for numeric values

To simplify the import of data you can specify ranges for numeric options. E.g. if you specify years 1990-2012, you will have just one line in csv file instead of 23.

Ascending and descending sorting options for dropdown values

With the advanced search dropdown for Magento 1 you can select ascending or descending sorting for each product finder option. Text values will be sorted by alphabet.

Multiple associations are possible

Any number of products can be assigned to each option. For example you can have multiple products assigned to each year, make and model.

It is possible to delete and create individual records for finders

You won't have to export a new .csv file just to remove or add a few products to the finder. You can delete and add individual products with their options right in the backend.

Visualization and performance

magento parts finder

Compatibility tab on product page

Display compatible options on the product pages. When customers reach a needed product page after searching by the Magento parts finder, they can see other compatible options of the product they are interested in. The feature enable a separate tab on the product pages.

Flexible finder design

You can either use templates provided with the extension or create your own templates to make the product finders look exactly as you like. Also you can display the same finder block as both vertical and horizontal in different places.

magento parts finder compatible options

Advanced options

  • Automatically load drop-down menu values;
  • Bookmark pages with search results;
  • Redirect to the product page when there is only one position in the search results;
  • Compatibility with the RWD theme;
  • Optimized for large data volumes;
  • Specify custom URLs to which customers are redirected after doing a search.


Try out several more extensions which help customers find the right products faster

    • With Search Pro extension you will significantly increase relevance of search results. Module allows to specify search priority for attributes, to choose the search type (‘like’, ‘fulltext’ or ‘combined’) and provides you with highly-configurable autocomplete feature.
    • Improved Navigation extension - a very feature-rich solution to significantly improve your site navigation and SEO.
    • Product Categories module - allows to show related categories right at the product page - great for cross-promotion.
    • Shop by Brand extension for a perfect brand management and brand navigation.

Additional information

Is compatible with layered navigation

Magento 1 search results produced by the extension can be further filtered with the help of layered navigation.

Product questions

Is it possible to search products within a particular category?

Yes, you can place the product search on the category page and it will find items by the given category only.

Can I filter results by category once the search is complete?

Yes, sure. After a search from the homepage, you can refine search filters by category, price, etc. See the complete answer to learn all the pitfalls.

Read the FULL answer

Can I have more than 3 drop-down portions?

Yes, with the filters of the year-make-model kind you can have more than 3 options, e.g. year/make/model/engine. As a matter of fact, the number of options is not limited.

Can this Product Parts Finder show Disabled or Not Visible Individually products?

Our Parts Finder filters products in categories by SKUs. If some product is not visible in the category used by the Finder, it won’t be shown in the results.

Can I assign multiple models to a single SKU?

Yes, you can upload the same SKU for different sets of brands / model numbers. It's often used for car part finder when a detail suits different models. 

Can a single SKU have multiple options combinations?

Yes, a single SKU can have multiple options combinations when one SKU fits for several vehicles. 

Is there any possibility to skip a step while filtering products?

Yes, it's possible to skip steps. For example, one can choose only model and skip other options. Mind that the first option is required and cannot be skipped.

Can this Product Parts Finder be used with multiple languages?

Yes, you can translate all labels in the CSV file (including car names if needed).

Can I change the number of available options once a Finder is created?

No, it’s not possible since the number of options is set at the beginning of finder creation, it cannot be changed after that.

Is there a way to bulk import year/make/model data?

When running a Magento car store you can bulk import year/make/model data. The extension is optimized for transferring larger volumes of information in a faster way. Read on to see the instructions.   

My products already have years and models assigned. Can the module use this data?

This data can’t be used directly as the Parts Finder needs only products SKUs. However, the attributes may be useful if you decide to create a file to import it into the Finder.

Can I add a Finder to a page layout instead of a CMS block?

Yes, you can add a product filter widget to any page via the amfinder.xml file. Read on to see the screenshot with the step-by-step instruction.

How to add finder to the home page?

To let your customer use Magento product filter on the home page, you need to create a new product finder, which is to be used for the need. Go on reading to see a bit-by-bit guide.

Extension works very well, has good documentation and is easy to customize. I did encounter an issue initially during setup but Amasty Support was able to fix it before my deadline. I really appreciate the great support.

I do like it
I sell spare parts and accessories for cars and vehicles imported from Japan. And this extension is irreplaceable for my online store. My profit has risen on a third over the past nine months. I highly recommend it to every shop with large selection of goods.

I'm very pleased
I have just installed the extension and I’m already impressed! It’s really well-coded and clear, installs very easily and looks nice on the frontend. The described features sound very promising, although I haven’t discovered them all yet. I’m very pleased with this tool!

One of the best product finder extensions so far. Worked perfectly right after installation so I managed to configure the filters without breaking a sweat.
Jul 23, 2015
Amasty made a good job
This is one of my favorite extensions. Amasty made a good job and I'm glad to be their customer.
I had some conflicts on installation but they were rapidly removed by Ryslan.
Jul 22, 2015
It's worth it
I sell printers and parts and need a good filtering systems on my site. I wasn't sure this module would work as it seemed to be for auto parts stores. But when I saw a screenshot with lexmark cartridges, decided to give it a try.
The installation was quite fast but then I learned that I needed to change many attributes in order to have relevant filters results. I clenched my teeth and did that. And you know what? Now everything works just perfect and I don't regret for the time spent on all the configurations.
Jul 20, 2015
just what we were looking for
High-quality extensions and the best support distinguish Amasty. It’s always a pleasure to have business with them (yeah, I’m a return customer). Don’t be misled that this module is designed only for webshops selling auto parts. In our store it works perfectly with jewelry.
Well done!
Jul 12, 2015
Nice module
Parts finder enormously expands the boundaries of the default Magento searching possibilities. It’s very easy to install, the module didn’t cause any problems with 3d party extensions, but I still give 4 stars, because preparing this thing to work, manually changing attributes and setting up all the options is pretty time-consuming and may give you headaches. After all is finally set, you have a magic wand in your store.
Jul 09, 2015
love it!
The extension is a godsend for my auto parts web store. We have hundreds of spare parts loaded, and this product just picks them up without any flaws. Works perfectly, configuring filters is as easy as pie. Good work!
Jun 29, 2015
just what we needed
This tool is just what we needed for our shop, seems it could save days of hard and boring work. I tried several extensions with similar functionality, but in the end we stick to Amasty. We sell sport equipment and now we’ve finally found the best way for our customers to pick the exact set of products they need. A+

Great Extension For User Experience
This extension is very well written to allow searching/filtering beyond what is normally possible with Magento.
When used with Amasty Improved Navigation the filtering and category configurations are practically
Excellent product support.
Highly recommended

Worth each dollar we paid for it!
I bet this module is one of the most flexible and handy YMM/tools you can find in the market. I’m really grateful to Amasty team that made some modifications for my car parts store and patiently answered to all my questions.
Unlike other similar tools this one can search items in a particular category if you place the finder on a category page – this was exactly what we needed. With the help of support guys we quickly made all necessary changes and now customers find the parts they need much faster.
Hope to see analytics/reports option in your future updates in order to track which products are being searched more often. Thank you guys!

Must-have tool
This is an easy tool that helps customers find necessary products in my store really quickly. I've made some customization and now Parts Finder works exactly like it was designed for me!
Jul 04, 2014
worth its value
The extension works great for my car parts shop. I had to play with the year-make-model filters a little to make them work the way I needed. In the end, I like the result, the extension is definitely worth its value.
Jun 05, 2014
Works great!
This is a great filter for having a Year, Make, Model search with Magento. Perhaps I did not read up on all of the features but I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that the filter may be enabled to remember the users selected vehicle so the so site only shows parts that will fit as they browse through the categories.
Although I have over 10 years e-commerce experience, I am a novice when it comes to Magento. With that said, installation was easy enough for me by just following the installation guide.
After searching far and wide for the best solution I think I have found it and for less than $100.00!

If you use Magento and you are in the Automotive Industry this extension is an absolute MUST HAVE! No better way to achieve YMM lookup's. 2.0 update with unique urls is amazing!

Works great, easy to install
Works great, easy to install. But it would be nice with some Fits/Mapping management on the backend seperated to each Finder and Universal product option.
May 03, 2013
Very Good
Great extension. Works very quickly. I currently have about 100,000 applications loaded, and it hasn't hiccuped once.

Suggestions for the next version. Check box type selector in products list for search and mass delete. Ability to import through "add a record" using range (2001-2004). Include option on finder block, that will allow customer to filter and display results from all finders. Add ability to output finder DB information to item text area attribute, or other method to allow display on items detail page, and be included within search.
Mar 18, 2013
Works brilliantly. If I had any criticisms they would be:
1)If you have 3 dropdowns, all 3 must be filled by the customer before they can search. It would be nice to have the option to select 1 or 2 of the dropdowns to offer a broader search.

2)The price advertised is not including VAT in the UK. The price including VAT is $96. Still worth the money though, good product.

Great extensions, SUPERIOR SUPPORT!!
Great extensions for product parts, what truly amazed us is the support. We had 2 problems and created a ticket on their support center, within 2 days all of our bugs were gone and the product finder was working perfectly. If you need a Ajax menu these are the guys to go with, I can't stress the how important support is and the team from Amasty fixed our problems with 2 days (over weekend) and without any hiccups or down time. Perfect!
