This client needed a Year Make Model Filter for their auto part eCommerce store. Every major eCommerce auto part store has this unique type of YMM filter that allows users to enter their vehicles year, make, model to find compatible auto parts. While this YMM Filter sounds simple and easy enough to accomplish, the YMM Fitment Filter for automotive eCommerce is actually pretty complicated. This filter requires source data and complicated logic to allow assignment of the customers vehicle, and relate products based on various hidden data coded to each product.
We accomplished this Fitment YMM Filter functionality for this client's eCommerce website. This allows association of "vehicles chassis id" to "product criteria". This links each Year, Make, Model (and in this clients case also) sub-model and drive type, to filter appropriate products.
