When necessary, we provide you with the flexibility to manually change the order of particular results, due to any reason: Shifts in sales policy, revenue margin considerations, prioritizing an ongoing promotion, or even stock surplus.

Our turnkey search app seamlessly integrates with your BigCommerce store, saving you from investing time and money into design and integration. We provide you with the freedom to customize any aspect of merchandising according to your needs, including auto-complete, product placement and product recommendations

Customize Results

Arrange products in a particular order for popular search queries, or hide certain products when necessary.

Rule-Based Merchandising

Merchandise in your categories is automatically sorted according to user intent, combining visual, rule-based product placement with search data to increase conversion. You can customize this by visually re-arranging products and setting rules.

Prioritize Results

Promote, demote or hide specific products according to rules you put in place. Determine rules per search keyword, season and geographic location.

Smart Navigation

Improve navigation at crucial points with Smart Navigation, which displays the most relevant products and filters across category pages. Visitors will be able to navigate your BigCommerce site more easily, whether they’re just browsing or well on their way to checking out.

AI Based Synonyms

Not all customers use the same words to describe the same thing. Since you can’t possibly predict what phrase or word a visitor will use, it’s likely some of them will be missing from your product name or description.

InstantSearch+ suggests synonyms you can use based on actual user behavior, and it supports synonym queries to ensure shoppers find what they want, regardless of how they described it. This way, you won’t miss out on selling a coat just because a customer searched for a ‘parka’.

Improve Conversion with Real-Time Analytics

View vital analytics about your BigCommerce store in your personalized, easy-to-use InstantSearch+ dashboard.
You’ll find these insights and more:

What your shoppers search for

What your shoppers don’t search for

Your most converting keywords per category and per product for

A summary of shoppers’ intent

Keywords your customers aren’t finding

How site search impacts your conversion and revenue

Self Service & Automation

InstantSearch+ was designed to be easy and quick to set up, without the need for programmers. Set up is done by flipping a series of switches intuitively, allowing merchants to configure every detail, and even customize the appearance and content of search results.

You and your visitors can enjoy a beautiful, integrated site search in minutes. To take the customization a step further, InstantSearch+ supports advanced configuration through CSS overrides and the JS API. With the help of our experts, it’s possible to develop a fully custom front-end search through the JSON API.
