Sage and Paige is a fully online fashion store heart-made by passionate designers who work in this industry for more than 10 years. With a strong belief in the eCommerce fashion industry, they chose Shopify and Product Filter & Search by Boost Commerce to help them bring in Australian fashion globally and let more clients know about Sage and Paige.

It's a pleasure for us to have a conversation with Arthur Chau from Sage and Paige team and discover how and why the Boost app helped to increase site search usage by 400% on their website.

The Challenges Of Sage and Paige and Of Fashion Commerce

Due to a wide variety of product options for colors, sizes, pricing, eCommerce fashion stores are in need of an effective storefront filtering system.

Sage and Paige knew clearly that their clients would like to find the right items in their desired colors, styles, sizing, and price point. And they want to do it fast with faster search results. Therefore, a product filter and search is an essential add-on in their online store.

There are quite many product filter and search app options available on the Shopify Appstore. However, Sage and Paige gave Boost - the #1 app in this category - the first try and stick with it since then. Undoubtedly, the free trial fully satisfied both the store owner and its visitors.

Our filter by color is such an upgrade from the native filtering system by Shopify. Not only does it allow you to choose from multiple styles (round vs square, list vs grid), but you can also create double color swatches or image swatches with the Swatch settings.

The color palette for filtering on Sage and Paige is customized with image swatches.

With the filter by price, we set the display as a range slider by default. You can change it to box or list if you want, but the price slider is the most recommended. Our price slider comes with a value text box so shoppers can input the exact price range. On the slider track, there are pre-determined tick marks that you can customize in the Slider range and Slider step. This kind of discrete slider gives customers a better idea of what is the low, the middle, and the high value in the price range. Shorten values toggle switch, according to Mark Laurie - another long-term user of Boost, is a ‘quality of life’ enhancement. This setting isn't essential, but once you use it and it cleans up the UI, you really do appreciate it!
