Hello, I want to release an ecommerce for selling cell phone accessories.

This business has 3 ways of finding products:

  • By Manufacturer ( Samsung, Otterbox, etc)
  • By Type of Product (Batteries, Cases, Screen Protectors..etc)
  • By Cell Phone Compatibility ( Galaxy S6 Edge, Iphone 6, etc)

How Do you recommend me to start configuring this categories? Eventually I will need to filter all the tree ways.

The most common search would be by cell phone compatibility.

I Really like the way www.mobilefun.co.uk shows the products and then filter it by brand, color, type... etc.

Also like the way in www.myvoicecomm.com you can search by device in a dedicated field.

I would like to hear your though about it and which would be the best way to start uploading and clasifying products.
