Instant Search That Increases Conversions


as-you-type search customers think less about how to search and more about what they find. Serve relevant content from the first keystroke. Algolia enhances your search functionality with a completely customizable search experience which can be seamlessly integrated into your Shopify theme.

Product & Collection Autocomplete

Offer users immediate access to your whole catalog from the dropdown menu, whatever your number of categories or products.

Instant & Faceted Search Page

Have your search results page, navigation and pagination updated in real time, with each keystroke.


Enhance customer satisfaction by delivering the most relevant search results, every time. Typo-tolerance and highlighting ensure users always find the products they are looking for.

Real-Time Sync

Our extension automatically synchronizes data (products, collections, etc.) in real-time, making sure that new products are available immediately. Tweak search results from the dashboard to match your needs (typo-tolerance, synonyms, etc.) or highlight your most popular products.


Faster search means more sales. Algolia returns results in under 35ms on an average – irrespective of whether you have 100s or 1000s of products. Our state-of-the-art infrastructure and distributed search network ensures that your customers benefit from this, no matter where they are.


Algolia gives you the ability to make your data – products and collections – searchable from a single search bar. Completely customize your search results based on criteria that makes sense for your business, such as popularity, date, relevance etc.

Built by developers for developers

This plugin is also completely configurable and fully extensible, letting you build a custom search experience or theme based on Algolia. You have full access to the HTML/CSS/JS used and can tweak it exactly how you want.

Look, if you're seriously considering this company you can read how my support request went down and judge for yourself. For the record I still haven't heard back from support. Speaking as a developer, they have a nice modern technology stack and a slick UI. But as I mention in the correspondence, it doesn't matter how nice it looks if it doesn't function. Search is one of the most important features of an eCommerce store. This app did nothing for me but cause visitors to bounce and cost me money. Maybe their core offering is good and they just neglect the Shopify app, still no excuse. I'd stay away for a while until the company gets a solid QA and Support process established.

Ok so I switch to a paying customer to get support, am patient and provide clear feedback regarding a critical bug making one of your core features unusable, I then take the time to follow-up with you when I haven't heard back, and now you're ignoring me. I don't care how cool your technology stack is or how sweet your UI is, if you can't get product reliability and customer service right then something is wrong and I'm obligated to tell my story.

I am really hoping for a reply somewhat quickly, I'm not sure what time zone you're in but it's been over 18 hours. I'm not trying to be difficult but search is an important function of my ecommerce site and I can't have it failing for half of my users. At least tell me whether or not you can reproduce the issue.

I made the change, cleared cache on my phone and it is still failing.

This is becoming more and more urgent. Can you reproduce in a separate environment? Because I would like to disable this feature on my store until it is fixed.

Let me know.

Hi again Dustin,

Could I ask you to go in your store > Online Sotre > Themes > Three dots at the top right of your theme > Edit HTML / CSS > layouts/theme.liquid .
There, if you search for "autocomplete.js", you'll find a line {{ '//cdn.jsdelivr.net/autocomplete.js/0.24.2/autocomplete.jquery.min.js' | script_tag }} .
Can you replace "0.24.2" there by "0.28", save and reload your site on your phone and check if it still fails?


How would you rate my reply?

Hi Dustin,

Thanks for the report and the screencast.
This is definitely not the intended behavior and I'll investigate where it comes from.

I'll let you know as soon as I have more information.

Hi Dustin,

thank you for reaching out about that and sorry for the delay.

I've just tested it with my iPhone 6 (10.3.1) + Safari and everything works fine. Is the problem still live? Any chance you can get more details?

Let us know, we'll be happy to help!

Hello I reached out to Clement regarding this issue but it is urgent so I wanted to message your support team as well. I just discovered that the instant search isn't working on mobile (iPhone for sure but possibly others). It shows instant results but then if you tap the result you want it just closes the search box and doesn't go anywhere. I thought maybe it was because I was on a free plan so I upgraded but still no luck . Please advise ASAP over half of my traffic is mobile.

Very good app with ultra fast search. Helmetdon.in is now live with Algolia search thanks to excellent support from Algolia team.


A few early hiccups, but the developer fixed them. Everything works great! Great communications with the developer.


- Best search solution of the world (i tested a lot of them).
- Search is really fast!
- Amazing customer support

Algolia is going to be the next big thing.


Good customer support
The search page is pretty fast!
It's going to be the main structure of my collections pages


If Amazon.com has a feature then you probably want your store to have it, and having a real-time autocomplete search (and then a search page with every filter your customer could want) are must-haves. Algolia is a night and day difference from the default search on our site and was an easy integration for how powerful the app is. Super responsive support as well!

From $0.00 / month

This app is free but requires an Algolia account.
