Ajax Instant Search

Provide a fast and effective live search bar to show relevant results as the customers type their query.

Add An Instant Search Bar to Improve Usability

Help customers find products quickly. Add the Ajax Instant Search extension for WooCommerce to your store. The Ajax Instant Search bar displays relevant results as customers type their queries. It saves them time, with no need to visit a search-results page to find products.

Display a category dropdown to let customers search for products in specific categories. Or, display the All/Products selection dropdown to let customers search the entire website or just products. Add an instant search bar anywhere on your website using the shortcode.

Customize the results-display-settings and switch between the native WooCommerce, WordPress, or custom search provided by the extension. To refine your search results, you can choose to search in specific product elements such as title, tags, excerpt, and product content.

Search filters

You can choose to enable the search-filters-dropdown to let your customers refine their search.

Category filter:

This filter allows customers to search within a specific product category.

All/Products filter:

This filter allows customers to search an entire store (products, pages, and posts) or only products. You can disable this filter from extension settings.

Three search engines

  • Custom Plugin Search (option to display products and/or pages, and posts, on the search results page)
  • WordPress Search (displays both products, pages, and posts on the search results page)
  • WooCommerce Search (displays only products, pages, and posts on the search results page)
