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.

A little bit tough to get it started, but once I did I really liked the final results. There is a ridiculous amount of power in this that you can use if you want to (but pay for it). This is close to enterprise level search for a reasonable price per month.

We removed Algolia because the free 10k operations don't last long at all. This includes all indexing, searching (per key), etc. If they had a cheaper intro plan we'd probably jump in, but I'll look around to see if there's another option at the price point we need.

From $0.00 / month

This app is free but requires an Algolia account.
