Every 0.1s of delay costs Amazon 1% of profit

For time-pressed customers, speed matters.
A single second latency delay costs Amazon over $1 billion (source). Optimising the time it takes to get product listings to their customers made a tangible difference to their sales figures. Sub-second Search can do that for yours. It gets product listings to your customers fast to give you the best chance of converting their interest into real revenue.

Collections, not just products.
Get customers' eye-balls onto your collections as well as specific products. If they search for "Computers", you might want to show them a collection full of computers. Sub-second Search automatically indexes all your collections and your products, to show results for both.

Generous limits so you know where you are.
Index up to 30,000 products. Works for you now and as you scale. No fuss.
No traps to fall into later. There's headroom for your users to conduct 30,000 monthly searches. If you get anywhere close to that then number 1, your site will have exploded in popularity and number 2, we talk to you about getting even bigger.

Better value than the competition.
We're cheaper than the $49.99 charged monthly by our various instantaneous search competitors and our limits are set higher. Just Google their pricing pages to check for yourself.

Works with your existing theme.
Users can still click through to your theme's current search results page,
so you don't lose anything you've paid for already. Sub-second Search simply layers additional functionality on top to improve customer search experience, help them find the right products more quickly and return more sales for you.

On-demand product sync.
Get customers searching your latest product catalogue in a single click.

No obligations.
Install it now and you don't get charged anything for the lifetime of your store. If Sub-second Search isn't perfect for you, simply uninstall the app and spend money with the competition.

Thanks free, it will work PERFECT.


Very helpful Alex thanks! I would put a 5 star review if you could have the app have a "smart search" where it doesn't need to exactly match the words in the search in order to give results but can also give "suggested results" instead of "No Results". But other than that all great! Great support, great and easy app to install.


Simple, easy. Alex was very helpful.


This app was so easy to install! Perfect and exactly what all shopify stores need! Thank you!

This app is the best! Easy to install and as soon as you start typing in the search bar the products start appearing,

I would recommend this app to anyone looking for something like this.

Great support from Alex too!

Thanks Alex (your service gets 5 stars from me)


Alex Stanhope has been the best help! A simple app with intense ready to help customer service. I was ready to remove the app until Alex began helping making this a really seamless experience.


The sub-second search app really works good!. It actually is very fast when searching and also very fast to index the products of the store... there are more than 28K products in my store and the app indexed them in less than a minute. I needed some customizations and the support was excelent. Thank you Alex!
Also, i love that the searcher throws products and collections.
I recomend this app for any kind of store.
