How do I show my Products in the "Browse by Price" section?

Most of the 3dcart themes will allow you to display a "browse by price" area of the store. This feature allows your customers to search for products by price range. The price groups (browse by price) feature can be modified to fit your needs.

This tutorial will show you how to make all customizations associated with the browse by price function.

Changing the Title of Search Ranges

By default, your store's price ranges are labeled using numerical value amounts like $0 - $24.99. However, these titles can be changed to fit your respective needs.

To change the title of the Browse by Price ranges:

  1. Go to Settings ->General ->Store Settings
  2. Look towards the top of the page and click on the "Product Display" tab
  3. Within the "Home Page" section, locate the "Hide Browse by Price" checkbox.
    (Make sure it is unchecked)
  4. Next, click on the "Edit Settings" link directly below the checkbox.
  5. Edit the Title of each bracket you would like to change.
  6. Click Save at the top right to commit your changes.

Changing the Price Ranges

By default, your store's price ranges are arranged to include basic price group ranges. However these ranges can be tailored to meet your specific needs depending on the pricing your products use.

To change the Browse by Price ranges:

  1. Go to Settings ->General ->Store Settings
  2. Look towards the top of the page and click on the "Product Display" tab
  3. Within the "Home Page" section, locate the "Hide Browse by Price" checkbox.
    (Make sure it is unchecked)
  4. Next, click on the "Edit Settings" link directly below the checkbox.
  5. Edit the Low Range and High Range of each range you would like to change.
  6. Click Save at the top right to commit your changes

Tip
When specifying ranges, be sure to include incremental cents between the different ranges. For example, you may want to specify your first low range as $1 and your high range as $10. However when you get to the second low range you specify $11 as the low range and $20 as the high range.

The problem with this set up is that there is no range for the store to include items that are priced between $10 and $11 (i.e. $10.01 through $10.99). Therefore, you will need to specify those mid ranges in either the low or high ranges.

This way, your items that have incremental pricing will also be showcased in their respective ranges.


Changing the Sorting of the Browse by Price Ranges

By default, we've listed the browse by Price ranges in ascending order from low to high price ranges. However, for your store, you may want to reverse this to display in descending order.

To change the Browse by Price sorting:

  1. Go to Settings ->General ->Store Settings
  2. Look towards the top of the page and click on the "Product Display" tab
  3. Within the "Home Page" section, locate the "Hide Browse by Price" checkbox.
    (Make sure it is unchecked)
  4. Next, click on the "Edit Settings" link directly below the checkbox.
  5. Edit the Order field of each range you would like to change. Lower numbers will display before higher numbers.
  6. Click Save at the top right to commit your changes.

Adding a new Browse by Price range

You may need to add more ranges to the Browse by Price area in order to offer a more finely tuned range of price search options for your shoppers.

To add a new Browse by Price Range:

  1. Go to Settings ->General ->Store Settings
  2. Look towards the top of the page and click on the "Product Display" tab
  3. Within the "Home Page" section, locate the "Hide Browse by Price" checkbox.
    (Make sure it is unchecked)
  4. Next, click on the "Edit Settings" link directly below the checkbox.
  5. Look towards the top right of the page and click the +Add button.
  6. Type the title of your new search range in the Title field.
  7. Type in the low number for the search range in the Low field.
  8. Type in the high number for the search range in the High field.

Tip
Remember to specify incremental ranges for cents as explained previously!

  1. Type in the sorting display number in the Order field. Lower numbers will display before higher numbers.
  2. Click Add.

Deleting a Browse by Price Range

If you need to remove a specific Brose by Price Range:

  1. Go to Settings ->General ->Store Settings
  2. Look towards the top of the page and click on the "Product Display" tab

  5. Click Remove next to the search range you would like to delete.
  6. Confirm your request

Renaming the "Browse by Price" Menu Header

  1. Go to Settings ->Design ->Store Language
