Filter enables your customers to find products easily by filtering out unwanted products and showing only the products they looked for. It saves your customers time to go through all your products and they can make purchase with the products they wanted in a short time before they lost interest.

For example, you are selling Fashion and you already have categories of Top, Bottom, and Dress. You can add filter by color on your Unicart store to make it simple for your customers to find the products they desired.
