  1. I think this is a great extension from the customers point of view. The customers spend so much of their time in searching for the apt product. I am not sure about the back-end thing but this blog post can be useful for my younger brother, who is the owner of a medium sized online retail shop. Thank you guys for sharing this!

  2. Many a times, the main issue our customers face is searching for the right product among the thousands of them. And, when they are unable to find any, then they exit the site and might never come back. I have sometimes faced the same situations. Thank you for sharing the information about this extension. I might use this in near future!
