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.

Click-and-tick configuration.
Configure what fields appear in search results. Exclude tagged products or collections from search results.

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

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

First Shopify Review ever from me because I think it really deserves it! This search app really improves our customers search experience on a minimal theme. We're also customers of others Lightenna Uncomplicated apps and I can tell that they are absolutely clean, functional, simple and the support with Alex is awesome. Best experience ever with a Shopify App! Thank you again Alex for your commitment.
