Why should I use addwish site search?
Customers who are using site search know what they are looking for and are more likely to convert. Therefore it’s important that you can make the path to check out as fast as possible for these high-converters.
A good search tool also helps to create a great user experience on your site and makes it easy to navigate. Even customers looking at small shops with a small product inventory may be tempted to view a competitor’s site if they can’t find what they are looking for.
Here’s our search engine on Babysam’s website correcting a spelling error (“duke” should be “dukke”):
How does it work?
We call our search tool a “live” or “dynamic” search because it shows results in real time. This means that customers aren’t redirected to a results page. This makes looking for products substantially quicker and easier. As soon as customers begin typing the search bar begins showing results in the form of drop down product previews. If they don’t see what they are looking for they can choose to see more results, where they will be taken to a results page.
These product previews have the product name and product image so it’s easy for customers to recognise the products they are looking for. The search tool automatically corrects spelling errors and typos. And it also autocompletes which is a great time saver for busy shoppers.
Can I choose how it looks?
Yes you’ve got complete design freedom over how the search will look and where to place it on your website. You can choose a design that fits in with your branding and site layout and we’ll build a search tool that will fit right in.
