To pass AJAX data to WooCommerce filter, follow these steps:

  1. Create an AJAX function in your theme's functions.php file or in a custom plugin. This function will handle the AJAX request and return the filtered data. Here is an example:

 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15
add_action('wp_ajax_filter_products', 'filter_products');
add_action('wp_ajax_nopriv_filter_products', 'filter_products');

function filter_products() {
    // Get the AJAX data
    $data = $_POST['data'];
    
    // Perform filtering logic here
    
    // Return the filtered data
    echo json_encode($filtered_data);
    
    // Always exit
    wp_die();
}


  1. Add JavaScript code to make the AJAX request and pass the data to the filter_products function. Here is an example using jQuery:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    $('#filter-button').on('click', function() {
        var data = {
            action: 'filter_products',
            data: $('#filter-form').serialize()
        };
        
        $.post(ajaxurl, data, function(response) {
            // Handle the response data
            console.log(response);
        });
    });
});


  1. Add a form in your template file with the necessary input fields for filtering. For example, you can have select dropdowns for filtering categories or price range.
  2. Make sure to enqueue your JavaScript file where you have the AJAX script.
  3. You can now customize the filter_products function to perform filtering logic based on the AJAX data and return the filtered results.
