Price Navigation

Price navigation can be used to distribute products by price range in layered navigation. You can also split each range in intervals. There are ways to calculate price navigation:

  • Automatic (Equalize Price Ranges)
  • Automatic (Equalize Product Counts)
  • Manual

With the first two methods, the navigation steps are calculated automatically. The manual method lets you specify a division limit for price intervals. The following example shows the difference between price navigation steps of 10 and 100.

Iterative splitting provides the best distribution of products among price ranges. With iterative splitting, after a customer chooses to view the $0.00-$99 range, the customer can drill-down through several sub-ranges of prices. Price-range splitting stops when the number of products reaches the threshold set by the Interval Division Limit.

To configure price layered navigation:

1. On the Admin menu, select System > Configuration. Then in the panel on the left, under Catalog, select Catalog.
2. In the upper-left corner, set Current Configuration Scope to the store view to be configured.
3. Click to expand the Layered Navigation section.
4. If you want to display the number of products in parentheses after each filtered item, set Display Product Count to “Yes.”
5. Set Price Navigation Steps Calculation to one of the following methods:
6. When complete, click the Save Config button.
