Building Custom Magento Extension for Vehicle Compatibility Data

About DiY Parts

eStore Ninja has developed a custom Magento extension specifically designed for automotive sellers to simplify the process of uploading vehicle compatibility data to their product catalog. This extension allows sellers to easily manage and update compatibility data in the backend of their Magento store.

With the custom Magento extension, automotive sellers can effortlessly upload and associate vehicle compatibility data, including Year, Make, Model, Engine, and Trim, to their product listings. This ensures that customers can easily search for products that are compatible with their specific vehicles, narrowing down the results from a vast catalog of products.

The extension also provides a custom search section on the seller’s website, allowing customers to conveniently search for products based on their vehicle’s compatibility. This enhances the user experience and helps customers find the most relevant and compatible products quickly and efficiently.

Our Approach

Uploading Compatibility Data:

At eBay Ninja, we understand the importance of efficiently managing compatibility data and providing a seamless search experience for automotive customers. We have implemented a straightforward process for uploading compatibility data by creating a CSV file with product SKUs and compatibility columns such as Year, Make, Model, Trim, and Engine. By repeating rows with the same SKU for each vehicle model, we ensure that the database is structured to deliver quick and accurate results from millions of product entries.

Displaying a Custom Search on Website Frontend for Customers:

To enhance the search experience on your website, we have developed a custom search section called “Search for your vehicle.” This section includes a basic search bar along with five drop-down menus for Year, Make, Model, Engine, and Trim. As users select their vehicle specifications from these drop-downs, the subsequent menus load relevant data based on the previous selection. This progressive search functionality narrows down the results and enables users to find compatible products with just a few clicks, even from a large catalog.

We invite you to review the live website and evaluate the effectiveness of our custom search implementation. Our goal is to ensure that your customers can easily find the products that are compatible with their vehicles, providing them with a seamless shopping experience.

If you have any further feedback or require additional assistance, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We value your input and are committed to continuously improving our services to meet your business needs.
