About Simile Visual Search & Filters

Why Visual Search:

  1. Sometimes it’s hard for your customers to think of the exact words to describe what they’re looking for. With visual search, they can use a photo from online and quickly find visually similar products.
  2. Searchers have a higher buying intent than browsers. Capture and convert searchers by creating a fun and engaging user experience for them to find relevant products in your store effortlessly.
  3. Convert customers faster by saving them time from navigating, filtering and browsing through a large catalog of products.
  4. Engage and capture customers that use social media for fashion inspiration.

How will Visual Search improve customer experience?

Image searches provide a more natural way to find products. Your customers can find what they are looking for with pictures they have taken or images from websites and social media. As a store owner, you do not need to spend time describing the look of your products with tags or text.

Simple & Powerful Visual Search:

The Simile Smart Search App integrates with one click and improves the basic Shopify search with the addition of visual search from a dedicated mobile optimized window.

How to Search:

Simile adds a Photo Search Icon to your website. The search icon opens a modal where a user can upload a photo they have on their device and get immediate results displaying visually similar products.

Customize It:

Simile enables customization of the camera icon location by fixing it on the side (of your choice) and embedding a camera icon on the search bar. You can also customize as you wish by adding a shortcode on your website or contacting our Support team to help you change the icon location.


Our new added feature allows customers to apply filters when searching for products. They can filter by price, color, size, tags, and vendors. Searching for the right product never been so easy!

Not Reliant on Product Metadata.

Searches are not limited to tagged text metadata on your product listings. The Simile AI uses Computer Vision to match search queries to your products without the need to match tags or metadata on your product listing.

Perfect for Fashion Retailers.

Visual Search helps customers find styles that are similar to ones they have found in public or on Instagram. Is your customer trying to match a cute outfit? Offer visual search to identify items that could pull off a similar look.

Thank you very much for the review. We are woking on the camera icon location and will release a new version soon. Because different theme has different search box and need to be handled differently. Please kindly let us know the theme your store is using, so we'll make sure it will work for you when we release the new version. The bug is also reproduced in house, we'll fix it in next release as well.

Really cool idea! I'm really pleased to offer customers the unique feature to search for my store's products by uploading their own photos. This app was super easy to install and didn't need any work on my end to make it work. All I had to do was enable it and voila!
