Magento Advanced Search – The Guide You Must Know

Posted by

Magento Advanced Search is a tool that helps customers precisely find out a product in the catalog through product attributes.

In other words, the customer can enter the product’s name, or SKU, and other factors to quickly search for the product.

You even can allow your customers to seek a product by its price range (in case they don’t know the product’s name or SKU) or by the color as well.
