Saving on Supplements: PricePlow Brand and Category Filtering

Using PricePlow to find the best deals on supplements and vitamins just got a whole lot easier.

Last week, we quietly released the PricePlow Filter Box, which can be seen on category and brand pages.

Filter by Brand

When you’re on a category page, such as our protein powder page, you’ll see the following box:

The PricePlow Category Filter

The box floats, so you can move it out of the way, minimize it, or close it. If you close it, it will return upon page load.

Click on the brands menu to see the potential brands that have products within this category:

Click Filter by Brand to see the list of potential brands.  The list on this page is huge because so many companies have a protein product.

Our example has so many brands, it’s helpful to filter it down a bit:

The list is refined to brand names containing the word Muscle

Now click on the Brands pulldown menu button (where it shows the brands you’ve chosen) to minimize the menu, and click the red Apply button. The page will refresh and you will see only the brands whose products you’re interested in.

Category Filtering

You can further refine the categories. For instance, right now, we’re looking all protein powders, but let’s say I’m only interested in pure whey protein isolate products?

Click on the proper subcategory…

PricePlow Subcategory Filter

Show me the pure whey protein isolate products from these brands!

…find the red Apply button, and voila!

Note: Sadly and interestingly, there is only one product available and in stock between these brands that is a pure whey isolate

This also works on brand pages

The category filtering also works if you’re on a brand page. Let’s head over to our PES (Physique Enhancing Science) page and see what they’re up to.

These are the product categories PES currently has products in

Click on Fat Burners and Fat Burning Drinks, and boom, you’ll see two of our favorite products: Norcodrene, which CJ is currently running, and Alphamine, which we recently reviewed and loved!

Comments? Questions? Suggestions?

Let us know what you think. This is something that we’ve wanted for a while.

Future Features

We’ll be posting about our next wave of features as they come.

For now, we are going to be expand the site a bit more, and then get back to more user features.

  1. Amazon integration
  2. Improved product matching – More matches in our existing ~13,000 products
  3. More products / automatic new product creation – Because 13,000 products isn’t enough

After that, get ready for more stores, and then a couple major features to be announced!
