Instant search is a must-have requirement for almost every e-commerce site. Live Search provides the customer with a very convenient method to find out instantly, what he/she is looking for. Smart search results page and collection page filters further ease product filtering on a Shopify store.
Time is money. You don’t want your customers to scroll and find what they want in the middle of hundreds of products. Customers aren’t patient, that’s why you have to keep them from leaving your website. By helping your customers find the exact products they want within seconds, Ajax search helps improve your sale.
You can add a predictive search to your theme so that the suggested results appear immediately as you type into the search field. Predictive search helps customers articulate and refine their search queries, and provides new ways for them to explore an online store. It also lets them quickly browse matches without having to leave their current page to see a separate list of search results.
