Setting up color and size filters on BigCommerce

The app creates color and size filters automatically after installation.

If you have changed the default names of the Color and Size product variant options in BigCommerce, you need to specify their new names in the app. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Searchanise control panel > Filters section > Settings tab.
  2. Enter new names into the Filters by options field.

  4. Click the link in the notice or the Force re-indexation button in the app’s Dashboard section to start indexation.

You can also change the appearance of filter values from default text to:

  • text in frames for size filters
  • color swatches for color filters
