Smart Search — Better User Experience

Do you know that 70% of customers in average leave your store for another one, if they don’t find the right product within one minute? Marketing costs won’t pay back, if the standard store search doesn’t offer relevant products in a few seconds. What to do?

Convert Visitors into Customers

Smart & Instant Search will help to turn visitors into paying customers. When customers search in your store, an instant and responsive banner will show suggested products, collections, and content pages as they type.

Better User Experience — Better Sales

We’ve improved the user experience with store search. The app instantly offers your visitors a product from the first letters of request. We aim to make Smart & Instant Search the easiest and most effective app for you, which supports different languages and works great on every device.

great customer service! very helpful in resolving my issue.


New Review 6/2/2018:
Still an amazing app. I did have one small complaint about their fuzzy search matching. Support came back to me right away with a workaround. About a week later they updated their search engine so I didn't need the workaround.
Thanks, Searchanise! You all are amazing!

Old Review:
I just wanted something to help me with some fuzzy searching. The built-in search is just weak. I got that and more! It's beautiful. Installation is so simple. If I could solve all my business problems for just $20 a month life would be great. As it stands I will settle for solving this huge problem for so cheap. I am REALLY happy with it. I haven't dived into the analytics yet but can't wait until have the time to do it.


Really nice plugin and not too heavy.


This is the search app that literally thought of everything. I was able to customize every aspect to my liking and it fit beautifully with my them. I was able to sort through my collections and hide and product type or tags we use for internal inventory sorting. Also being able to add tags to items that are specifically a Pre-Order and showing which items are in stock and out of stock is a nice touch as well. I've tried a number of different search apps before coming to this one and have found its unique openness for me to be creative with the design to be key in making my decision.


A very thoroughly design app, that allows site visitors to view all available types of pages within a search. The product filter function is particularly useful. What would be even better, is if you could use this product filtering on category pages, when a search has not been performed to land there.


Great search at an affordable price


Fantastic so far! Really quick responses.


AMAZING APP! To be 100% honest, I installed & re-installed the app a couple of times at first. Each time I installed it, I attempted to use it but didn't really have the time to learn it. Finally when every search on google kept pointing me back to this app to use for the things I wanted to use it for.... (smart search, programmable search, and side navigation filtering).... It just always came back to this app so I installed it and dedicated time to finally figuring out how to configure it and use it. When I say dedicated time.... I think it was all of 7 minutes lol. and then I was able to keep tweaking it to how I like it. It's an awesome app.... the search works EXACTLY how I want it too, the side bar filtering is 100% customizable.... (I didn't use any defaults, made/titled all my own collections to reflect.... "Shop by Brand", Shop by Collection" Shop by Size, Shop by Wheels... etc.... (I sell Luggage) Great flexibility.... Highly recommend.


Great App. Works perfectly. Pricing is on point!


Has a lot of flexibility. One of the only ones I found that can search collections.
