Finding a desired product in the shortest time possible is crucial for your conversion rate and overall customer experience. Some customers prefer going through the navigation tree, while others cut straight to the chase and try their luck with the search tab. For the latter we have just the thing.

Aheadworks Search Autocomplete & Suggest extension for Magento provides customers with a dropdown of destination suggestions once they are past typing the third symbol in the search field, allowing them to jump to relevant products without going through the search result page. Additionally, the drop down tab includes matching keywords to guide the search in the direction of most results.


Customized look

You can specify the number of search suggestions to appear in the dropdown, write your own messages to be displayed at the top and bottom of search results, and create your own dropdown template.

Relevant suggestions

The type of information you think is irrelevant may be excluded from the description of suggested items, also, out of stock items may be eliminated from results.

Search aids

Customers may be suggested keywords related to what they are typing to narrow the results and/or allowed to search by product tags for more liberal results.

Live updates

AJAX based search works extremely fast, finding suggestions as you go, but extension allows setting up a custom update delay in case you don’t want continuous search response to be too distracting.

How Search Autocomplete & Suggest differs from Advanced Search

Search Autocomplete & Suggest is based on native Magento search functionality while

Advanced Search replaces this functionality by bringing the power of external search engine to your store.

Both search extensions for Magento can easily work together - when installed on the same website, Search Autocomplete & Suggest can use Advanced Search for Magento as its search engine.
