You can enable one or all of the following features for search.

  • Enable predictive search: a feature that predicts what users are searching for and shows results as users type.

You can customize the behavior of predictive search with the Search & Discovery app from Shopify.

Predictive search isn't available in all languages. See the complete list of supported languages.

  • Search using product's tags.

  • Search using product's description.

You can set some predefined popular search queries to suggest the search result and choose how out-of-stock products show (hide/show at last).

The default fields searched on are 'title', 'product_type', 'variants.title', and 'vendor'. For the best search experience, users should search on the default field set, or as fewer fields as possible.
