There are 2 types of marketplace search bar users will use to search for listings; search bar by keyword (type) and location.
Search bar by keyword (type)
In a RETAIL AND GOODS marketplace homepage, buyers enter keywords such as ‘Shoes’ into the search bar to search for items. In a SERVICE BOOKING, SPACE AND GOODS RENTAL marketplace, buyers will have to also specify their desired period using the date function.
Search bar by location
With this search bar, buyers will search your marketplace listings by typing in a location, prompting a drop-down list of places. Once a search is done, search results will show the listings in a 100km radius of the buyer using geo-location.
Once a search is done, buyers can also click on More Filters to select additional filters - i.e. A price filter to pick for the desired price range. These additional filters in your marketplace will be determined by the custom fields that you have created as an admin.
For example, if you have created a custom listing checkbox called ‘Unisex’ for your shoes marketplace, this checkbox will appear on the search filters.
Buyers can also sort through the listings by:
- Price (ascending/descending)
- Name (ascending/descending)
- Rating (descending only)
