There are two different types of shower pump centrifugal and regenerative, centrifugal are quieter and more efficient, regenerative are cheaper and easier to install.

You should choose the pump based on the size of the plumbing pipes where it is going to be fitted, i.e if you have 15mm pipes where the pump is to be fitted then use a 15mm pump and if your pipes are 22mm then use a 22mm pump. The pressure of a pump should be matched to the equipment it is pumping too, If the product states that it requires 2.0 bar pressure then purchase 2.0bar and above shower pump.
