Faceted method for classifying goods in an online store
Facet classification is a set of descriptions of the same object according to its parameters and technical equipment. This method is especially relevant when creating a web resource: when filling an online store, reliable and accurate information, specific characteristics of products should be collected.
Both classification and data collection are easy to implement with the help of E-Trade Jumper, an efficient tool that was created specifically to make managing your online store as simple and convenient as possible.
The filling of the site through the parser is carried out based on what characteristics the product from this product group has, and how important these characteristics are for the visitor of the online store.
No online store can be successful if it does not implement the faceted method of product classification. Intuitive navigation allows the buyer to quickly sort the catalog items and find the right product.
Benefits of the faceted classification system
The faceted classification system compares favorably with the hierarchical one in that faceted navigation is most relevant for visual presentation of data about a particular product. The catalog is arranged in such a way that the division does not take place by brands, and then by lines, but by important data about the appearance, equipment parameters, and additional functions.

Filtering products in a few clicks, and, accordingly, convenient site navigation is a step towards your buyer.
